Here's when you can play Skyrim VR on PC

Skyrim VR

Skyrim, the game of a thousand formats, is getting another release. Its virtual reality port came to PlayStation 4 last November - almost six years to the day since it first launched, since you ask - and it will come to PC on April 3.

Skyrim isn't the only recent Bethesda hit to get a VR port - here's Dave on why Fallout 4's Vive exclusivity is a bad thing for VR.

The news comes via official Twitter channels.

For more information, check out the announcement on Bethesda's blog or the game's Steam page, where - for £39.99 or $59.99 - you can add it to your library alongside the base game, the Legendary edition, and the special edition.

If you're a Skyrim fan, please don't leave an angry comment - I'm only joking. Skyrim's VR port might actually prove to be a worthy re-release. Big open-world games are rare in virtual reality, and a game like Skyrim - whose wild popularity is already proven - could be just the thing the platform needs.

If you need more convincing, consider how playing in VR could radically alter your experience of Skyrim - here's how our erstwhile colleague Kirk (RIP) found himself turned into an archery-obsessed lunatic (rather than the regular kind).

It's interesting they're specifically saying "SteamVR", not "HTC Vive".

It's certainly rather tempting... Goodness though, another year, another Skyrim release.

I would pay for the game and the headset if this ends up being as good as the original game ... and there is not frikin' DRM in the hardware.
