Bethesda has been busy trying to make ends meet with “Fallout 4” recently, mostly tied up to the use of mods for the PS4. With game mods rampant in PC and Xbox One game consoles, Sony and Bethesda finally came to an agreement to have the feature for the PS4 to a certain extent.

As mentioned in a previous post, a lot hinges on patch 1.12 which recently rolled out for “Fallout 4”. The only hitch with the mods is that they are a bit limited since modders will have to make do with the available assets and resources available.

Looking ahead, there are of course better things to come. One angle is that possible integration of virtual reality to “Fallout 4”, something that has been dished at other games as well. Bethesda did announce at E3 2016 that virtual reality mode is being worked on for “Fallout 4” though there was no mention of an actual date of release.

Adding some virtual reality mode spice could be work for “Fallout 4” considering the game environment. It offers an explorable landscape that is tackled by people from a first-person point of view, providing endless possibilities for gamers who often look for something new, Neurogadget reported.

Despite the claims of Bethesda that they are actually working on a virtual reality mode for “Fallout 4”, it is however not an assurance. Releasing a VR mode version will still depend on the governing external factors such as demand for the technology.

At the moment, the revived VR technology is sketchy. The goal at the end of the day will still be profit and right now that may be a bit hard to foresee for "Fallout 4". Bethesda is likely to keep a close watch on the market and see if VR adoption becomes a hit if (and when) used on their rival game developers.
