What’s new for Fallout 4 VR?
At E3 2017, Bethesda released a new trailer for the highly anticipated Fallout 4 VR.
HTC also announced October 2 that from that point on, any purchases of an HTC Vive from the official website or other authorized retailers would come with a free pre-order code for Fallout 4 VR.
How do I get Fallout 4 VR?
Fallout 4 VR is available for preorder on GreenManGaming for about $60, and is often found on sale. Considering the amount of work that has gone into turning Fallout 4 into a VR experience, this price was expected.
Fallout 4 VR is expected to release December 12, 2017. It will initially be available exclusively for the HTC Vive, but it’s expected that savvy users out there will quickly have it working for Oculus Rift. As for Windows Mixed Reality, thanks to recent SteamVR integration, it should work from the start, but this is unconfirmed.
Those of you with a PlayStation VR; it looks like a no-go for the foreseeable future. Since The game is available on Steam VR, it should work on Windows Mixed Reality and Oculus Rift.

Do I get Fallout 4 VR if I have the regular game’s season pass?
Unfortunately, no. This is a new, standalone game that requires a separate purchase. It doesn’t matter how deluxe or special your version, if you want to play in VR, you’ll be making a separate purchase of about $60.
What is Fallout 4 VR?
Bethesda has made a big deal of promoting Fallout 4 VR as a full game. That means this isn’t just a small VR add-on for the regular Fallout 4. Everything you love about the original PC game, including the gory gunplay, the crafting, and the thrilling storyline, is here, but you’ll get to experience it with the Vive on your head, motion controllers in your hand, and your VR space to move around in.
As we’ve seen with Skyrim VR for PlayStation VR, it’s truly the full game built specially for VR.
Does Fallout 4 VR include the expansion packs?
The store listing has some very careful wording:
Fallout 4 VR includes the complete core game will all-new combat, crafting, and building systems fully reimagined for virtual reality.
The “core game” mention seems to indicate that VR will not see the DLC content, but in the Fallout 4 VR trailer, there’s a quick shot of the Pip-Boy with the “Vault-Tec Calling” quest that is only found in the “Vault-Tec Workshop” DLC.
A Bethesda news post from September 2017 states that:
Fallout 4 VR will include all content from the base game – including hundreds of locations, characters and quests – and will be available on the HTC Vive on December 12, 2017.
From this, it seems clear that Fallout 4 VR will not include any DLC, at least at the start of its life.
Can mods be used with Fallout 4 VR?
A Bethesda employee has stated that Creation Club content will not be made available for Fallout 4 VR (nor is it available for Skyrim VR).
In another forum thread, it’s also stated that there will be no official support for community-made mods, but that doesn’t mean some players won’t figure out how to use them.
Keep in mind here that VR performance is a touchy thing, and implementing mods might be a lot trickier here than with a regular PC game.
What type of movement does Fallout 4 VR employ?
There is a distinct division between VR users when it comes to locomotion. Many enjoy standard locomotion — the kind that simulates regular walking and running — while many others enjoy teleportation thanks to it being less nausea-inducing.
Fallout 4 will make both types of locomotion available. The touchpad on one Vive controller will be used to move with standard, smooth locomotion, while there is also a teleport option. Teleporting will be limited when it comes to distance to keep the difficulty balanced. Wouldn’t want you running from a Deathclaw!
Will V.A.T.S. be available in Fallout 4 VR?
The Vault-Tec Assisted Targeting System (V.A.T.S.) is a staple of recent Fallout games, and it lets you slow down time in order to choose your shots carefully. It’s a big help when you’re overwhelmed by enemies, and it’s making an appearance in Fallout 4 VR.
V.A.T.S. in Fallout 4 VR will not completely stop time, but will instead slow it down so that you can carefully pick your shots. This is great news, as the intensity of regular Fallout 4 is going to be at an entirely new level when you’re actually inside the game, but completely stopping time would no doubt break immersion.
How do the controls work in Fallout 4 VR?
Everything in Fallout 4 VR is controlled with your Vive wands. Movement is handled with a touchpad, crafting seems to work the same way, and you can even give quick commands to Dogmeat while holding a gun. Controls seem to be mapped similar to many console games, where a circular menu helps hold a lot of settings within only a few buttons.
In the trailer, you can see that the Vive wands show up as they appear in real life. There’s no confirmation whether virtual hands and arms will replace the controllers in the release version.
When can I play?!
It’s expected that we’ll be heading into the wastelands starting December 12th.
