Bethesda goes big on Virtual Reality at its E3 conference
Virtual Freakin' Reality
Bethesda went all-in on VR at its E3 press conference this afternoon, showing off gameplay from DOOM VFR and Fallout 4 VR, both of which will release before the end of the year. DOOM VFR looks to handle movement using the point-and-teleport mechanic many VR games currently utilise, with the action slowing down while you're selecting where to teleport to. That's likely going to be necessary, considering how hectic DOOM gets.
Fallout 4 VR, meanwhile, is going to be fully playable in VR much the same as it was originally, with movement controlled via analogue controls. The trailer highlights the ability to use the VR wand controllers to achieve more precision when placing furniture and other structures in your settlements, which is certain to keep many a budding builder busy for hours.
