Not played this myself but heard great things about it. Today the PCVR version goes live and is free if you already own the game on steam. Just purchased it myself and looking forward to trying it tonight.

Why the cold votes? Is it cheaper elsewhere?

It sounds like they did a great job of translating it to VR anyway, I just wish the PS4 was powerful enough to support it

There was another deal posted about the same time as this but got deleted. I honestly couldn't tell you which deal was posted first.
Bought it on sale for the Xbox worth every penny visually stunning original approach addressing mental health problem

The other deal appears to have been removed so I would guess yours was first. Voted hot!
Amazing deal. I bought this at the back end of last week on Steam for £24.99 and was on the Steam sales not long ago for £19.99. So knowing that VR free content is also unlocked today this is a brilliant.

Hi, If you own or buy the original Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice on GOG you'll get the VR Edition for free."

Not related to the post, but it's good to know.
Had to try this in VR, thanks. Cost me £14.18 ($17.99)
It's pretty freaky in VR, it makes you feel like you're one of Senua's voices in her head when she looks in your direction

Just playing through this now on PS4, would love to experience it in VR. No chance of a PSVR version coming I'm guessing?
Thanks. I can confirm I received a single key from HumbleBundle which redeemed into both the pancake and VR titles on Steam.

I'm really looking forward to this game. The official website has a huge behind the scenes blog about the games development which also looks really interesting. Enourmous amount of content for £15!

They've ruled out psvr completely I think unfortunately... Its requirements for PC are higher than most VR titles so I guess the PS4 just doesn't have the oomph to run it

Ah man, that's a shame but understandable. The graphics in the game, particularly the lighting, are just stunning.
Was tempted, then checked the system specs for the VR element - requires a 1080!

Nah I play it with a gtx 970 on medium settings and it runs ok. I think a 1080 would offer the best experience but it's not too bad on a lower system.

Is that on VR though or just the standard game?

In VR, only managed to play it for about 30mins so far. So it may struggle later on with a bit more action on screen.

Cheers, will give it a go then - I wanted the game anyway as heard good things, will treat the VR as a bonus

Yeah I thought the same. Just try lowering the settings for VR, the default settings in VR are set to ultra.
Weeeeeeeeeeak game.
I almost bought this at full price today. Thanks.
Incredible game! Kudos to devs for such great port to VR and free patch for current owners (you watch and learn Bethesda). Played around 2 hrs yesterday - so intense!

I bought this for the VR. The devs have stated this is a labour of love and they do not expect to make money off the vr port. i think it is important to feedback to them if you bought for VR, because i would like to see other ninja theory games in VR (enslaved VR would be great, as would DMC imo)

I also bought it for the VR. I'm sure they'll notice if there is an increase in sales at the same time as the VR release.

I really don’t get the criticism of Bethesda... they’ve ported two of the biggest games in recent years to VR, something no other games developer has done. In doing so they’ve helped push vr and hopefully help make it a success, yet they receive criticism for having the gall to charge people for the work the port entailed. It’s fantastic that this was a free dlc, but let’s not pretend that’s what all developers doing vr ports would or evenshould do
I dont think anyone has a problem with charging for DLC. but charging full bubble for FO4 rather than a paid DLC for the base game and combined it not being the GOTY edition (and no i do not buy that it was too hard to make goty work considering modders have done it, imo it was with a view of charging again for dlc).

Add to that that it is not even a fully featured VR mode with full hand presence either.

Now, dont get me wrong, I do not think a VR mode for existing games needs to be a complete re-write with VR in mind, with full hand presence etc..... BUT IF they want to charge top dollar for a game which lets face it, most of the content is there from the start - then, i not only expect it to be the GOTY version, but I also expect it to be a VR version worthy of full price.

Skyrim at least gives the full GOTY experience.

(and lets not forget that FO4 didnt even work properly at launch, you could not use scopes for a start.

but a £15 DLC for the 2D game, which gives you VR access to what ever DLC you own for the 2D game.... that would have been fair imo.

I look at VR mods done on games like Doom 3 and NOLF2 and these were from fans of the games without access to source code. I expect more from professional devs who made the actual game.

ALL the above being said, I havnt been complaining about bethesda either... but i can see the point of those who do.

Don't disagree with your points. Thing that bothers me though is that Bethesda is criticised, whereas nobody comments on the other major game developers like EA Ubisoft Square Enix etc... not supporting vr in anything like the same way

Let's face it, if Bethesda was making huge amounts of money for the vr ports of skyrim and fallout everyone would be doing it. The fact they're not is very telling imo
that is very true..... whilst i have my issues with how Bethesda handled FO4 and to much lesser degree skyrim, I do have way more respect for them than EA et al. I think a lot of people bad mouth them as well because of the whole Zenimax saga and they trying to get the rift taken from sale even AFTER they were awarded $500,000,000. (half of it htey have since been forced to give back).

but this is not the fault of the developers at Bethesda.

Just think of all the cool VR games that can come to the PS5 in a couple of years
