YouTube user “Chris Gallizzi” has posted a video (via Kotaku) showing The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim running with the Oculus Rift VR headset.

Two minutes of footage are shown, including sword combat and horseback traversal. “Playing Skyrim with the Oculus is a dream come true,” said Gallizzi in the comments, before adding that the game’s field of view with the VR headset “takes some adjusting depending on your sight… I’m [nearsighted] so I had to adjust [the] FOV from 100 to 110 to make everything seem correct.”

Playing Skyrim on Oculus Rift is currently made possible by using the free and open-source Vireio Perception driver, which has also been used to make Left 4 Dead, Mirror’s Edge, and Half-Life 2 work with the VR headset.

Last week Bethesda said the Skyrim development team had moved on to their next project.
