Fallout 4 has been around and seen the world. Hell, we even have a huge list of guides and walkthroughs for it. It has been received with both hype and longing by players, as those who have enjoyed Fallout 3 have kept on roaming the wastelands, and those who prefer the older versions have been lamenting the disappearance of some elements that made the game legendary in the first place. First news in a long while come from AMD, who seems very excited about the Fallout 4 VR.
VR has been looking for a killer app for a while now. The technology has been hailed as the next new thing in gaming, however, it is either very complicated to use or there have been no must-have experiences by the developers. Corporate Vice President of AMD, Roy Taylor, seems very much positive about the future of Fallout 4 VR. He said that it was an “industry changer” and that “it will change the way we think about VR”. He even compared what the game will do for VR with the effect that Mario and Sonic made on early generations of consoles.
These are the first words on Fallout 4 VR in a long while, since it was announced for HTC Vive last year and there still hasn’t been any real footage of it. It would definitely be very good for VR in general to get a great game, especially one that is set in a well known and loved universe, such as the Fallout one.
Hopefully Bethesda will be able to present Fallout 4 VR on this year’s E3. If it is a great experience it might even nudge VR in the right direction, since the hype has quite died down recently, after last year’s launch of all of the VR platforms, Vive, Occulus Rift and PS VR.
