Skyrim VR Gets a Massive Performance Boost Thanks to a New Mod
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR gamers experiencing framerate drops as a result of downloading too many graphics modifications should rejoice as a new version of the game adds support for temporal upscaling and promises to significantly boost performance. While the ability to explore the world of Bethesda Game Studio’s Skyrim in VR has made the game popular, poor performance on all but the most powerful PCs has kept the game out of reach for many gamers.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR, released in 2017 and 2018 for PlayStation VR and PC, brings the addictive, open-world gameplay of 2011 original to VR. Although many players were excited to explore Skyrim’s mountainous region in this new, immersive mode, lacklustre performance and unoptimized controls left many unhappy with the VR ports. Much like the original game, a community of skilled producers has generated countless modifications for Skyrim VR over the years, addressing many user grievances.
