Red Dead Redemption 2 VR Conversion Mod Gets Early Access Release
A VR conversion mod for Red Dead Redemption 2 has been created and is now available in Early Access.
If you have Red Dead Redemption 2 and a capable gaming PC, you can try the mod for yourself through developer Luke Ross’ Patreon. Those who subscribe to the £ 8 per month level will be able to download a first version of the mod and all future prototypes. Keep in mind that Red Dead Redemption 2 mods might not work well with Red Dead Online and might get you banned. This is strictly for the single player component of the game.
Ross previously created the REAL virtual truly mod for Grand Theft Auto 5, and this conversion of Red Dead is similar, allowing players to experience the whole game in virtual reality. “Red Dead Redemption 2 can now be played in VR from start to finish,” Ross’s Patreon read. “50 to 160 hours of incredible gameplay that can finally be experienced the way we VR fans always wanted !!”
You can see footage of the mod in action as part of this video from Virtual Reality Oasis, which plays the games sitting down while using a Valve Index HMD and gamepad. UploadVR also wrote impressions of the mod, noting that it can be played in first and third person.
In other Red Dead news, Red Dead Online recently landed on Xbox Game Pass as part of the May Library Update. Rockstar recently announced that GTA 5 and GTA Online will receive next-gen upgrades on November 11, for PS5 and Xbox Series X / S.
