As with the original PlayStation VR version of Skyrim VR, the new PC release will cost a full $60. Today, Bethesda announced that it's bringing the popular first-person RPG to SteamVR PCs, ending Sony's almost six-month VR exclusive. Unlike the Fallout VR adaptation, Skyrim's controls seemed a bit off though I will say being able to explore all of my favourite places up close and personal was an incredible treat.
It is not now known how to move to PC will change the title, though it is clear that some changes will need to be made to accommodate the Oculus Touch, HTC Vive wands and Windows motion controllers, and to allow for room-scale immersion. According to the publishers, Skyrim VR contains the complete critically-acclaimed core game as well as all its official add-ons - Dawnguard, Hearthfire and Dragonborn - in one package.

VR gaming is still sort of working itself out at the moment, with most games delivering an arcade style experience. You can choose between tracked motion controllers or a gamepad, and both standing and room-scale tracking will be supported.
Skyrim VR has been available on the PlayStation 4 since last November and has received mostly favorable reviews from critics and gamers alike.
