Sony debuted a sizzle reel featuring upcoming games for the PlayStation VR at their E3 Press Conference, and there’s a lot to talk about. So let’s get to it!
The biggest announcement was definitely The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR, which transports everyone’s favorite Bethesda game into glorious virtual reality. Skyrim VR will be released this November.
There’s also The Inpatient , a survival horror game from Supermassive that takes place in a mental asylum and serves as a prequel to Until Dawn. Supermassive is also working on Bravo Team, a Call of Duty-ish first-person shooter featuring nail-biting battles.
Other PlayStation VR titles on display included Star Child, a beautiful 2D sci-fi side-scroller, and Monster of the Deep: Final Fantasy XV, an action-fishing game featuring characters from Square-Enix’s latest entry in the series.
Finally, Moss is a mystical adventure starring a tiny field mouse. It definitely has a very strong Secret of Nimh feel to it.

Bethesda has brought The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim to several new platforms since its launch in 2011, including a Remastered re-release on the PS4 and Xbox One last year, and an upcoming release this Fall on the Nintendo Switch. So what can the publisher to make it appeal to adventurers who may have played it before? Just add Link!
OK, Skyrim players on the Switch won’t be playing as Link, but they’ll be able to outfit their hero with the Master Sword, Hylian Shield, and Champion’s Tunic from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild by tapping an Amiibo to the controller. And that’s not all, other Amiibo figures will provide chests with additional loot. Bethesda will also add motion controls to Skyrim, and it can be played on the go as well:
Winner of more than 200 Game of the Year Awards, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – the epic fantasy masterpiece from Bethesda Game Studios – arrives for the Nintendo Switch. The legendary open-world adventure where you can be anyone and do anything, now can go anywhere – at home on your TV or on the go.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim for the Nintendo Switch includes all-new gameplay features like motion controls for combat and lockpicking, outfits and gear from The Legend of Zelda. Take down enemies with the Master Sword, protect yourself with the Hylian Shield or look heroic in the Champion’s Tunic. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim for the Nintendo Switch also includes all official add-ons: Dawnguard, Hearthfire, and Dragonborn.
Plus tap other compatible Amiibo to gain additional loot including those from “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild” series, “The Legend of Zelda 30th Anniversary” series, “Super Smash Bros. “series, and “The Legend of Zelda” series.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim still doesn’t have an official release date on the Switch, but it should be available sometime this Fall.
Bethesda has always been one of the busiest studios in the business. In addition to producing multiple games at the same time, Bethesda is well known for producing each sprawling entry in the Elder Scrolls and Fallout franchises. But they’ve taken things up a notch with their current workload.
Speaking to IGN, Director Todd Howard has confirmed the company is currently working on seven different projects, though some of these games have been discussed before.
Howard specifically cited the upcoming Switch launch of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Fallout 4 VR as two projects that were previously announced. The developer was extremely excited about Fallout 4 VR, adding that the game is playable “start to finish in VR” and is shaping up nicely:
“There’s no content that we removed or changed [for VR],” Howard explained, noting that the current work being done on it is related to how players actually interact with the experience.
“It’s interface work, it’s other things,” he said. “There are issues with locomotion, how you traverse that much space, and we’re hoping to support as many modes as possible… It’s not done yet, there’s work to do, but the parts that are there, I’m biased but it’s pretty incredible.”
Betehsda’s Director also reiterated the company is working on another mobile title that “would follow in the successful footsteps of Fallout Shelter,” though he didn’t say if it would be an original title or based on an existing franchise.
The seventh project remained a mystery, but with a final flourish, Howard told IGN that Bethesda’s two “big and crazy” projects announced during the 2016 DICE Summit are still in development, as is The Elder Scrolls VI, which was first mentioned at E3 2016 as being “a very long way off.”
