The time has come. Bethesda will be launching Fallout 4 VR today at 4PM PST / 7PM EST for the HTC Vive on Steam. They have moved it up one day from the prior launch date they had set. Fallout 4 VR is a heavy-loaded RPG game which will be available in-store for $59.99. And to fill everyone’s cravings, they have released a short gameplay footage of Fallout 4 VR with technical instructions on how to use the mechanics in-game.

In the gameplay video above, we can see that she is using the HTC Vive to play Fallout 4 VR. She is wielding the Vive wand to operate controls for the game. In the video, they tell us that users will have both the teleportation option and smooth locomotion option when it comes to movement.

Below, we’ll be going over how to access certain things in Fallout 4 VR.

How To Access Direct Movement (Smooth Locomotion) For Fallout 4 VR

This is wonderful news considering that many people prefer the smooth locomotion route when moving around. Users will be able to access “Direct Movement” by going over to the “Main Menu” section. Then you will hit “settings,” “VR,” and toggle Direct Movement “on.”

The game will also have custom settings for left-handed players and givnette settings to make smooth locomotion a little bit more comfortable. For players with smaller room sizes, you’ll be able to access World Rotation which allows you to snap turn left and right without needing to turn all the way around.

There is also a setting called Activation Helpers which helps users be more precise when picking up objects or interacting with the world. You’ll be able to adjust any of these options anytime by going into the game’s “Main Menu” and selecting “Settings” and the “VR.”

Favorite Menu

For users that are wanting to quickly access your favorite weapons and items, you can select them by rotating your thumb on the touchpad. This will open up a quick list of things for you.

Bethesda has stated that V.A.T.S. has been completely redone so that you can aim and move around your targets in real-time. The world around you will still be slowed down while engaging the enemies. The camera will always be in the player’s control for optimum comfort.


The pip-boy will now be an extension of your arm in the VR world. Users will be able to simply raise your arm and turn your wrist to see your Pip-Boy appear in the game. You will also be able to scale the size of the Pip-Boy and even project it as a menu for easier access.


For melee weapons or gun bashing, users will simply swing the primary controller to knock out the enemies. Aiming with iron sights will be more realistic and accurate. To throw grenades, you will simply squeez the side grips and release when you’re ready to throw. You can also reload weapons by tapping the side grips.


Simply scroll through the building pieces with one controller while the other controller can be used to move around items. Users will be able to scrap items the same way. Teleportation will make building structures a lot quicker and easier.
