In addition to the VR version, Bethesda also remastered the dragon-slaying sequel for current-generation consoles in the shape of Skyrim: Special Edition, and also brought the game to Switch previous year to boot. The game officially releases on PC on the 3rd of April. Last fall saw the release of both Fallout 4 and Skyrim VR versions for the PlayStation 4, followed by a SteamVR version of Fallout 4 to give PC gamers their first taste. And this marks an exciting time for VR on PC as more AAA titles get ported.

Skyrim VR will be playable using the HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, and Windows Mixed Reality headsets, and will be available on April 3 via Steam with a $59.99 price tag. Skyrim VR seemed like the flawless candidate for an eventual Steam release, but up until today, Bethesda has kept quiet on such a port.

Skyrim VR originally launched in November past year for PSVR.

Skyrim VR contains the complete critically-acclaimed core game as well as all its official add-ons - Dawnguard, Hearthfire and Dragonborn - in one package. Are you excited to play Skyrim in VR on your computer?

It's hard to believe that there'd be anyone left who hasn't tried Skyrim yet, but if that's you, then maybe you should take Skyrim VR for a spin.

Regardless, Skyrim VR is not for the faint of heart. Skyrim VR offers new controls for virtual reality movement, combat, and magic, so if you thought the standard Skyrim experience was immersive, this might be worth checking out.
