The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim PSVR bundle announced

Sony Interactive Entertainment America (SIEA) has announced that it will release an Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim PlayStation VR bundle in the U.S. later this month.

Due out on November 17 alongside the standalone PSVR version of the critically acclaimed fantasy title, the PlayStation VR Skyrim VR bundle includes a copy of the game, a PSVR headset, PlayStation Camera, and two PlayStation Move controllers.

It’s also worth noting that Skyrim VR includes not only the base game but all expansions release to date: Dawnguard, Hearthfire, and Dragonborn. Sony’s also thrown in a PSVR demo disc featuring teasers of 13 games.

The PSVR Skyrim bundle will retail for $449.99/CAD 579.99 and can be pre-ordered from today at major retailers across the states and Canada. 

Sony also confirmed that the PSVR headset included in the bundle is the updated model. This redesign features integrated stereo headset support, as well as an improved connection cable to spare you of any messy wires. 

In addition, the new PSVR headset adds a different Processor Unit that supports HDR pass through, allowing gamers to experience HDR-compatible PS4 content on a TV without the need to disconnect the unit between the TV and your console.

Dragons, long lost to the passages of the Elder Scrolls, have returned to Tamriel and the future of the Empire hangs in the balance. As the Dragonborn, the prophesied hero born with the power of The Voice, you are the only one who can stand amongst them. And you will — all in a stunning virtual reality package.

"Skyrim VR can be played with either a DualShock 4 or the PlayStation Move controllers. To heighten your experience, each controller also enables you to customize your movement with both free movement and teleportation options,” reads Sony’s PlayStation Blog blurb. 

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim was originally released for PS3, PC, and Xbox 360 in November 2011. The game was re-released for current-generation systems as The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – Special Edition last year, featuring all available downloadable content.
