Description: Yore VR is an open world sandbox game built from the ground up in VR for the HTC Vive. If you enjoy resource gathering, hunting, crafting and a simpler time, you will find plenty to do in Yore VR. With two game modes, you can practise forging or start in the open world with nothing but the clothes on your back. Blacksmithing fans will find over 40 different components, blades, hilts, crossguards and pommels to use for crafting.

Before you can get to work in the shop, you’ll have to find wood for your fire and ore for the smelter so pick up your trusty pick-axe and venture out in search of iron. If weapons are your thing, earn gold to unlock a virtual arsenal of medieval weapons. Starting with 4 unique crossbows and a bow we will be introducing dozens of different weapons. Hone your skills in the shooting range or a variety of other areas meant to test your skill. It’s not about escaping your life, it’s about rediscovering a simpler time.

Review: Before the game The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR came along all VR users wanted was a game like The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim to fully immerse themselves into the medieval world. Then Yore VR comes along to offer that experience. It seemed to tick all the right boxes. It looked great, had loads of potential and was being enjoyed by Early Access backers. But sadly it was not meant to be and this game has long been abandoned.

That means you don’t get a lot for your £10.99 and that makes this game almost impossible to recommend. Sure, it looks OK I guess when I think of other VR experiences back in its day, but these days we VR games expect a lot more for our money and even if a sale it would not stand up well unless there is a massive price drop. SO maybe keep an eye out for it, but I wouldn’t go out and seek it.
