You can find the full ESRB description of the VR version of Skyrim below:

This is a VR role-playing game in which players assume the role of Dovakin, a prophesied figure with the power to combat dragons in the fictional world of Skyrim. As players traverse through mountainous open-world environments, they complete missions and quests that impact the eventual fate of their character.

Players use swords, bows and arrows, axes, and magic attacks (e.g., fireballs, ice shards) to kill various enemies (e.g., wolves, dragons, human bandits and soldiers). As players engage in melee-style combat, some sequences are highlighted by slow-motion effects, particularly for decapitations. Large blood-splatter effects also occur during combat, and some environments are stained with blood or body parts (e.g., heads impaled on spikes). Some sequences allow players to injure/kill non-adversary characters, including bound prisoners; they scream in pain amid splashes of blood or fire.

As the game progresses, the dialogue and on-screen text contain references to sexual material (e.g., “She. . .raped the men as cruelly as Bal had ravished her”; “Remember when you thought [he] was. . .intent on making you. . .into his personal sex slave?”).

Alcohol such as wine, mead, and ale can be purchased and consumed by players’ character throughout the game; in one sequence, players can engage in a drinking contest with another character, which eventually results in slurred speech (e.g., “One more. No problemsh. . .Thash grape!”).

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR will be released for the PlayStation 4 and PC on the 17th of November in the North American region. If you are interested, you can preorder the PS4 version of the virtual reality game with this link on Amazon.
