Mod creator Luke Ross has released an early version of the Red Dead Redemption 2 VR mod, which – as the name clearly indicates – allows you to play RDR 2 on PC with virtual reality goggles.
Ross is responsible for REAL VR, the most recognized and praised VR mod for GTA 5.
The author points out – according to PC Gamer – that he started all work from scratch. He couldn’t use the Grand Theft Auto 5 mod as a base.
“The game is much more advanced than GTA V from a technical point of view,” he emphasized in the description.
“I had to create a whole new framework for VR injection: basically everything I had built for GTA V mod was now useless and needed rewriting from scratch.”
In total, Ross had been working on the modification for over six months, several hours a day. For this reason, he already set up an account on Patreon some time ago – so far, access to RDR 2 VR is only available to those who financially support him on this platform.
The designer announced that in the future, he wants to introduce extensive support (with an appropriate adaptation of the interface and control) for virtual reality to other games, such as Cyberpunk 2077 or Horizon Zero Dawn.
