Now you will be able to use VR in your favorite games.
March 4, 2023
The VR mod allows players to physically interact with the world by using their arms to break blocks and attack mobs. The only limitation is that the multiplayer mode requires all players to install Vivecraft VR. There is also a standalone version of this mod called QuestCraft for Meta Quest headsets.
Half-Life Series: Lambda1VR and Source VR Mods
VR support has also been added to the original Half-Life and Half-Life 2. The Half-Life 2 VR mod is available on Steam for free. Users must have the original games to play these fantastic virtual reality modifications. These VR ports also have full motion control so players can properly aim and shoot in the game. Source VR Mod also brings Half-Life 2: VR Episodes One and Two to Steam for free.
Unreal Engine VR Injector Mod
Unreal Engine VR Injector is an upcoming VR mod that aims to make Unreal Engine games playable in VR. At the time of writing, Modder Praydog, the creator of REFramework, is developing the mod. The VR mod is occasionally showcased by the Flat2VR mod community in different Unreal Engine games. It uses full in-engine 6DOF motion, synchronized eye rendering, a detached gaze, and several other features.
Best VR Mods
For video games, you can now have as many formats as possible, including real ones, but don’t worry! I bring you a selection of the best genres that were not available in VR, and now you can enjoy them and get the best experience.
1.Wrath: Aeon of Ruin
The first one will surely be Aeon of Ruin from the Dr_Beef team, but the most anticipated are the ones for Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3. Modder Praydog announced this summer that he was working on supporting these Capcom games. It is not known if they will be free or paid, but it is known that they have collisions and that we will be able to use the controllers of our PC viewers.
2. Doom 3
Doom 3 by Dr_ Beef for Quest was the first to arrive, in January of this year. The third installment of Id Software’s Doom released in 2004 came to life again and would do it again for PSVR in the remaster by Archiact studio: Doom 3 VR Edition.
3. The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners
Zombies have also arrived to virtual reality. With this version of The Walking Dead, you will be able to enjoy the whole story in a more immersive way, you will meet the most iconic characters of the franchise and you will be able to cut off the zombies’ heads yourself as you wanted to do while watching the series.
4. Risk of Rain 2
Hopoo Games’ shooter received unofficial VR support thanks to a free mod by DrBibop, a great work that allowed us to play it immersively on any PC viewer using its controllers. You can download it from this link.
This Viking survival adventure has enjoyed great popularity, and the strong point of the mod created by Brandon Mousseau is that it allowed VR and non-VR users to play together.
6. Subnautica Below Zero
This video game can be played in virtual reality thanks to a mod created by Flatscreen2VR, unlike the first game that had official VR support.
7. Red Dead Redemption 2
Great reception from Red Dead Redemption fans as it received a VR mod in spring. Its author, Luke Ross, was already known for having developed others using a similar technique for Grand Theft Auto V and No One Lives Forever 2.
The Mafia Trilogy is also playable in VR thanks to Luke Ross’ mods. Neither this one nor the one for RDR 2 is free. To download them you must support their author on Patreon, and the minimum is 9 € per month + VAT. It may seem a lot, but if we subscribe to his account, we will also have access to Horizon Zero Dawn, which is available since last week, and to those that will be released in 2022: Cyberpunk 2077, Watch Dogs: Legion and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
There are also others that are in beta and could launch in 2022: MechWarrior 5, Firewatch, Half-Life 2, Deep Rock Galactic, Life is Strange: Before the Storm, etc. Remember that although mods are usually free, it is necessary to have a copy of the original game. The Steam winter sales, by the way, will start tomorrow at 19h.
