It has already been revealed for quite some time now that game developer Bethesda is planning to create a Virtual Reality (VR) version of its hit post-apocalyptic open-world game, "Fallout 4."

What is unclear, however, is the amount of content from the game that should be expected in the VR version of the title.

Luckily, Todd Howard — director of the "Fallout" series and "The Elder Scrolls" since "Morrowind" — has revealed some interesting ideas regarding the VR version of the game during his latest interview with Glixel. According to Howard, Bethesda is actually planning to put everything included in "Fallout 4" in VR.

"That's the promise of VR, being in a big virtual world. The core experience, meaning you put on the headset and you're standing in the world of Fallout and can go where you want, just that little bit is every bit as cool as you hope it would be. Once we did that, we were like, 'OK, we gotta see where this goes," said the game director.

As for whether or not the VR version of "Fallout 4" would succeed in the market, Howard confidently stated that Bethesda is not entirely worried about the sales of the upcoming VR version of the game.

"That will all sort itself out. We have an opportunity to make something really unique. We'd rather do that than make some other tiny experience. I don't think that's what people want from us," he continued.

Many fans might remember that Bethesda has already launched a demo version for the "Fallout 4" VR a few months back, according to Game Rant.

Fortunately, it seems like "Fallout 4" is not the only game that they should look forward to as the studio is also planning to launch a VR version of its recently launched fast paced first-person shooter title "Doom," which was developed by id Software.

Bethesda hasn't released any specifics yet regarding the things that fans can expect in "Fallout 4" VR. But since the 2017 launch is drawing near, chances are they would hear more about the project in the coming months. More news about the VR version of "Fallout 4" should emerge soon.
