And this marks an exciting time for VR on PC as more AAA titles get ported.

With the game coming to HTC Vive, Windows Mixed Reality and Oculus VR, it becomes possible for it to get better graphics as well, because both these run on PCs and are not limited by the default specs of a PlayStation.

Bethesda Studios has officially announced the launch of Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR for Steam VR on PC.

Bethesda will release the PC version of Skyrim VR through Steam on April 3 for $59.99. Today, Bethesda announced that it's bringing the popular first-person RPG to SteamVR PCs, ending Sony's almost six-month VR exclusive. Skyrim VR seemed like the flawless candidate for an eventual Steam release, but up until today, Bethesda has kept quiet on such a port.

For years, Toys R Us paid a hefty interest fee. 25 stores will close this week, with the other 75 to follow. Closures are expected to happen over time and not all at once, the Washington Post reports.

If you're wondering why Skyrim VR was exclusive to the PSVR initially, Bethesda's Head of PR and Marketing Pete Hine, explained the reasoning behind the decision to Player.One at last year's QuakeCon.

Skyrim VR took PlayStation VR gamers by storm when it was released late previous year, dominating PSVR sales charts and helping Sony to boost its headset sales. Skyrim VR includes the critically-acclaimed core game and official add-ons - Dawnguard, Hearthfire, and Dragonborn.

Skyrim VR will be something that's instantly familiar to those who are already well acquainted with the standard version. From battling ancient dragons to exploring rugged mountains and more, Skyrim VR brings to life a complete open world for you to experience any way you choose.
