While the Skyrim VR was revealed for PlayStation VR, it was not clear whether there will be HTC Vive and Oculus Rift versions. However, the company recently took to Twitter to state that they plan on supporting as many platforms as they can.
The Skyrim VR lets you experience the same gameplay as the regular version with the PlayStation VR head-mounted display. This adds a whole new dimension to the gameplay. The new game comes with expansion DLC packs. The three expansion DLC packs include Dawnguard, Hearthfire, and Dragonborn.
According to the E3 reveal trailer, the Skyrim VR uses standard locomotion for movement. The game does not seem to a teleportation method for normal walking and running. Both are simulated. It remains to be seen if teleportation option will be available in the complete version.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR can be controlled with a DualShock 4 controller or the PlayStation Move controllers. At E3 2017, Bethesda VR offered the E3 attendees a first look at the game. A video from the same showed a player using two PlayStation Move controllers to work his way through the game.
