The hype is real. Fallout 4 was literally just released and yet the game is already playable via Oculus Rift in fully immersive VR – thanks to vorpX.
While we are still waiting for the first next generation VR headset to arrive, the HTC Vive, there are plenty of developers busy working on a large variety of virtual reality games. Though, many games do not offer VR support, they are simply not meant to be played in VR – but can they? Well, not by default. Nevertheless, there actually is a PC program that enables users to play non-VR games in VR: vorpX.
And this very program got recently updated to version 0.9.1, which is indeed able to convert both Call Of Duty Black Ops 3 and Fallout 4 into virtual worlds. Talking about Call Of Duty, you may discuss the usage of playing a fast-paced (primarily) online shooter in VR. However, this Youtuber seems to enjoy Fallout 4 using his Oculus Rift:
Fallout 4 is an open world action role-playing shooter developed by Bethesda Game Studios, which has been published yesterday by Bethesda Softworks. It’s set 200 years after a nuclear war in a post-apocalyptic Boston.
*Update 13.06.16* Bethesda just announced that Fallout 4 will get a native VR solution for the HTC Vive.
