Unlike Doom VFR which is being created from the ground up with VR headsets in mind, Fallout 4 VR will be a reworked version of the standard game. In order to avoid some of the obvious problems Bethesda will be redesigning the combat, crafting, and building systems to better fit with the VR style of gameplay. Most notably, you will now have a choice between aiming with V.A.T.S. and aiming with your own two hands!

If you're interested in seeing what this might look like in-game you'll find the recently posted teaser trailer right below. Just bear in mind that a standard trailer will never truly capture the VR experience, so take everything you see with a few grains of salt as it'll be noticeably different when you're looking at it through a headset. Here's the video:

If I didn't play the VR version of Resident Evil 7 I would say that Fallout 4 VR has no chance of being anything more than nauseating, but these days I'm far more optimistic about VR conversions. Whether Fallout 4 VR is going to end up being one of the better ones, I'm afraid we won't be able to tell until it hits store shelves, but here's to hoping it ends up being excellent because VR headsets sure could use a game as massive as Fallout 4.

You can expect to see Fallout 4 VR on the HTC Vive this October. Additional platforms haven't been announced just yet, but since this is Bethesda we're talking about chances are it will be available on everything after a short exclusivity period. And finally, if you would like to learn more you should head over to the official website or Steam.
