Fallout 4 VR will draw in wastelanders at E3 2017

E3 2017 is just a few months away, and game publisher Bethesda will once again have its pre-show event to parade its newest and best games. Much like the first time Bethesda did one of those events, Fallout 4 be prominently present—but this time around, in virtual reality.

Bethesda showed off an early version of Fallout 4 VR last year, but the company's VP Pete Hines thinks the game is ready for prime time. Hines spoke to Youtuber Hip Hop Gamer, and said that Fallout 4 VR is "the most incredible thing you've ever seen in your life." Adding more hyperbole onto the pile, he said that "you can't even imagine what it's like, playing in VR and how realistic it looks." Check out the video, complete with a rather enthusiastic interviewer.

We can surmise that the release date for Fallout 4 VR will be revealed at E3 2017 in June. We're also hoping to find out for sure whether or not the game will support the Oculus Rift headset. Previous demos all used the HTC Vive, and with parent-company ZeniMax embroiled in legal proceedings with Oculus, support for the Rift isn't yet a sure thing. Once we've seen a bit more of the game, we'll see if Bethesda's open-world RPG could be the kick in the pants VR needs to hit the mainstream.
