In hindsight, Fallout 4 wasn’t the follow-up we were hoping for when Bethesda stealth announced it in 2015. Sure it had all the S.P.E.C.I.A.L. perks in place, allowing you to upgrade your customizable character as you saw fit during your time in the Wasteland, but it was lacking that new-gen polish that a PS4, Xbox One and PC game at the time was expected to have.
In VR, however, Fallout 4 could find new life on a platform it’s more suited for. That’s because, although the HTC Vive performs great when paired with an adequate enough PC, even the best VR experiences are kind of rugged looking when put up against a crisp 4K monitor. That, combined with Fallout 4’s impeccable optimization for PC, makes it a no-brainer for the Vive.
Fallout 4 will arrive on Steam, exclusively for the HTC Vive, for the full retail price of $59 (£39, around AU$76). Until then, and observe with lustful eyes as it sits solemnly untouched in your Steam library. Or you can put that cash towards a headset if you aren’t taking shelter in one already.
