Currently, the game's official Steam page is now live.

After the release of Fallout VR without support for Oculus Rift, owing to the company feud between Bethesda's parent company ZeniMax and Facebook, parent company of Oculus. Today, Bethesda announced that it's bringing the popular first-person RPG to SteamVR PCs, ending Sony's almost six-month VR exclusive.

Though we're almost seven years removed from its original debut, Skyrim refuses to die, and this SteamVR makes three re-releases for the title within the last year (with PSVR and the Nintendo Switch version). If you haven't had the chance to try Skyrim out yet, maybe you could find the time to give Skyrim VR a chance!

Originally released on PlayStation VR previous year, Skyrim VR packs in the full base version of the sprawling open-world title, plus the expansions Dawnguard, Hearthfire, and Dragonborn, all of which have been given the virtual reality treatment for a fresh gameplay experience.

Bethesda's promise for a VR port of its three games - Doom, Fallout, and Elder Scrolls series have now been realized in its entirety.

If you thought the original Skyrim was immersive, you are in for a treat: Skyrim VR offers new controls for virtual reality movement, combat, magic etc. However, now that Skyrim VR is coming to SteamVR, players with an HTC Vive headset will be able to get in on the fun as well. And this marks an exciting time for VR on PC as more AAA titles get ported. If you wish to pre-purchase it right now, you can pay $60 and have it ready to play on launch day!

Regardless, Skyrim VR is not for the faint of heart.
