A new Red Dead Redemption 2 VR mod that has been created for the game and can be seen in action in the video embedded below may be of interest to Red Dead Redemption 2 gamers who have VR headsets.
Jamie Feltham of the Upload VR website has given 27 minutes of gameplay. Luke Ross, the developer behind the R.E.A.L GTA 5 VR mod, is the creator of the latest Red Dead Redemption 2 VR mod.
Luke Ross, the mod’s creator, is launching his early work on Patreon. Ross has previously worked on VR mods for No One Lives Forever 2 and Grand Theft Auto V. The latter is included in our list of the best VR mods available right now.
In its current state, this mod allows you to use a gamepad to play. You can play it in first-person or third-person mode, as in Red Dead Redemption.
The world of Red Dead Redemption 2 has captivated a large number of fans, but will it be even more immersive in VR?
With a new mod that is currently in early access, modder Luke Ross is attempting to address that issue. The mod is only available via Ross’ Patreon, and the game can be played entirely in virtual reality.
Ross has previously worked on No One Lives Forever 2 and Grand Theft Auto V VR mods. The positive response to both prompted Ross to create something “much more ambitious.”
The mod is the culmination of six months of full-time work, which is why it was moved to Patreon—at the moment, you must become a patron to access the mod.
Ross also wants to add virtual reality support to Cyberpunk 2077, Horizon Zero Dawn, and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, which patrons will be able to play once they’re published.
You’ll be able to experience the whole campaign in VR, cutscenes, and all, thanks to gameplay footage given by VR YouTuber VR Oasis (his channel is packed with awesome VR-related content).
At the moment, the mod does not support motion controls, so you’ll have to play with a mouse and keyboard or a gamepad.
Your arms tend to be linked to the location of your headset, so you’ll have to battle your enemies while looking them in the eyes.
Ross’s achievement is a true credit to the modding community! The trailer looks incredible, and it’s easy to imagine how fantastic Red Dead Redemption 2 will be in virtual reality.
Since the release of Red Dead Redemption 2 by Rockstar Games in 2018, it has been one of the best-selling games of all time, so the mod should have a large audience!
Ross’ Patreon page can be found here for those interested in becoming a Patron or learning more about the project.
The PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Google Stadia versions of Red Dead Redemption 2 are all available now. All of our previous coverage of the game can be found right here.
