AMD‘s corporate vice president and Head of Alliances of Radeon Technologies Group, Roy Taylor mentioned about Bethesda‘s upcoming VR heavy hitter “Fallout 4 VR” just very recently over at the VR World Congress (which is currently on-going right now), while he was providing his insight at the event for the industry.
According to his insight, Taylor looks to have high expectation for Fallout 4 VR, likening it to “the Mario, the Sonic the Hedgehog” of VR industry, and that “it will change the way we think about VR”. He also claims that this title will be the “industry changer”.
Roy Taylor said that the wires is one of the biggest issues that the VR industry is facing right now, and that AMD is trying to rectify it with their newly announced partnership with Nitero, a chip manufacturer that deals with wireless VR. At the moment, Nitero is targeting next-gen VR devices, using multi-gigabit transmission and integrated bean for transmitting stereoscopic video at “unheard of latencies”.
Fallout 4 VR is scheduled to launch for the HTC Vive this year, and a demo will be on hand at E3 Expo, which take place from June 13 to 15, 2017 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. It will also be coming to Microsoft’s Project Scorpio gaming console too.
