A Blast From The Past? The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind Now In VR

A Blast From The Past? The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind Now In VR

Tired of playing the same old new VR releases? Looking to jump back into a certified classic, but this time in glorious VR? Well, wait no longer.

There's always more than enough to keep you busy in VR, with a lot of brand new developers putting out some fantastically original works of realism, fantasy, or horror.

But there's sometimes a feeling that I'm certainly guilty of from time to time. It's the feeling that I wish it had come around sooner. There are so many certified classics that we'll just never get to experience in glorious virtual reality.

Or, at least, that's what I thought. One fantastic game you'll finally get to re-live in glorious virtual reality is The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind.

You already have the opportunity to explore Skyrim in virtual reality, with Bethesda Softworks having released a VR port of The Elder Scrolls V back in 2018. But now, thanks to the work of talented OpenMW coders, developers are hard at work on a full VR version of the classic Morrowind.

There's even builds available to play now. The game already features motion controller support, a full panoramic camera and a fully scaled FOV, as well as updates menus. The motion controls, though, are particularly impressive. Just like in Skyrim VR, you have fully intuitive control over all your swords and bows, and your hands are visible in game.

You'll still need to own the base game to play this VR version, but luckily you can get the Morrowind Game of the Year Edition right now for 75% off - just under $4.

You can check out the game's progress and a few versions to test out yourself here. And better yet, the VR ports don't stop there. It's finally happening: Microsoft Flight Simulator VR is arriving next month for PCVR.
