After being available on PlayStation VR for a little while now, Skyrim VR has finally made its way to PC as well. In terms of platforms, it features full support for the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and Microsoft Mixed Reality, which probably means it'll work on just about any major VR headset as long as you're willing to fiddle with it.

Unlike the original launch of Fallout 4 VR, I am very glad to say that the PC version of Skyrim VR has arrived without seemingly any game-breaking issues. Since it is a Bethesda game we're talking about, Skyrim VR is naturally riddled with bugs and minor annoyances, some of which are a bit more severe now that they're directly in your face, but it's nothing you can't overcome through a bit of perseverance. Whether it's actually worth the €60 asking price though, that's something you'll have to decide for yourself.

If you're interested in seeing what Skyrim VR looks like in action, allow me to share with you the original trailer for the PlayStation VR version. It's a bit outdated and not as graphically impressive as the PC one, but it should still give you a bit of an idea of what to expect. Have a gander:

On the other hand, if you prefer the written word you should head on over to either Steam or the official website in order to learn more. And as a final note, here are the minimum and recommended system specs, though I would highly recommend you go slightly above them because any sort of stuttering in VR games can be downright nauseating.
