General Skyrim VR Tips

If you’ve never played Skyrim before, then these tips might help you get started.

However, regardless of whether this is your first time ever trying Skyrim, or you’re an experienced player who has already completed the main quest line, we’d like to share some tips that could make a big impact.


First and foremost, know that Skyrim VR is a video game that’s focused on allowing you to do whatever you want.

Have your followers pissed you off one too many times? Kill them.

Have that shopkeeper on your quest list stolen something that you couldn’t afford? Steal it.

Want to become a badass battle magician who uses magic spells and fireball attacks? Then use magic spells and fireball attacks to improve your skills at using magic spells and fireball attacks.

And there is no right way to play Skyrim. Every playstyle is valid and enjoyable.


If there is something that Skyrim doesn’t allow you to do, however, it’s running out of things to do within an hour or so of starting the adventure. All you need to do is talk to NPCs.

You might encounter quests when you’re out exploring the world or talking to people at inns and bars.


Ultimately Skyrim is a roleplaying game about empowerment and possibilities. It doesn’t guide you through everything, but simply gives you the tools to do whatever you want.

Did you know you could marry, too? Have kids? Ride dragons? Be a werewolf? Vampires? That you can play Skyrim online?

You can even go back in time! There is so much to see and do in this game that it’s hard to keep track of everything.

DualShock 4 VS PlayStation Move

In order to play Skyrim VR, you must use a PlayStation VR headset. When playing on a TV, you simply place the headset on top of the display.

Playing on Computer

However, if you’re playing on a computer monitor

  • You’ll need to connect the two devices via an HDMI cable
  • Once connected, you’ll then need to download the SteamVR software onto your PC.
  • After installing the software, you’ll need to launch it and log into your account.
  • From there, you’ll need to open the “PlayStation” menu and select “Install Game”.
  • Then, you’ll need to locate the file named “SkyrimVR_Setup.exe”, double-click on it, and follow the instructions.

PlayStation Move Controler

The other two solutions rely on the PlayStation Move Controler

  • teleportation
  • gradual smoothed motion.

For teleporting you move with the left Move Controller and then hit the Move Button to teleport.

In the event of smooth motion, you move again, but now when pressing the Move Button your character moves smoothly through the game world as if you’re controlling a control pad.

It’s not the best solution to moving around, but it does get the task done.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I put on Virtual Reality glasses?

You should wear virtual reality goggles in three easy steps

  1. Unbuckle all straps as far as they can go.
  2. Place the picture right before your eyes and ensure you’re seeing the sweet spot.
  3. Tighten all straps and secure them so the top of the headset rests comfortably on your forehead.

What kind of accessories would be useful for VR?

Foams for VR headsets are available at most stores. They’re easy to get and they ensure that the headset is clean and comfortable.

Can you put on every Virtual Reality glass the same?

Yes, with every pair of eyeglasses it is important that you place the lenses against your eyes, and then tighten all the bands. However, it is true that each pair of eyeglasses has slightly different bands.

Therefore, one pair of eyeglasses requires you to turn a dial to secure the head strap, whereas another pair of eyeglasses may have an elastic band that must be tightened.

What games can we offer in a VR arcade?

A successful virtual reality (VR) arcade video gaming experience often fulfils a number of requirements. For instance, arcade video gaming experiences are easy to learn and you will achieve a high score at the end of each round.

This ensures that players enjoy the gameplay and wish to continue playing. An excellent VR arcade video gaming experience is Beat Saber.

Players do not have to push any buttons and after playing one song they instantly have a score that they or their peers can attempt to improve.

However, not every VR arcade video gaming experience may be played in a business setting. Therefore we always advise a VR arcade video gaming platform such as Springboard VR, or SynthesisVR for an experienced VR arcade.

Yes, of course. At Unbound VR we specialize in virtual reality and we’re also experts in its business and professional usage.

We, therefore, offer a range of services related to virtual reality, including training sessions where an expert demonstrates how to properly put on the headset. You can reach us via email if you’d like to discuss your needs further.
