The creator of the R.E.A.L VR mod has just released a VR support mod for Red Dead Redemption 2. Accessible via modder Luke Ross Page Patreon, the modification is currently in "Early Access" and will continue to receive further improvements over time. Judging by the above images (courtesy of UploadVR) looks like a damn thing, and the whole game can be played in first- or third-person perspective.
Ross explains to his Patreon that building VR support for Red Dead Redemption 2 required a fundamental approach: the code for his GTA 5 mod could not serve as the basis for this project. “The game is much more advanced than GTA V from a technical standpoint,” Ross explains, “and the graphical APIs it supports (Vulkan and DX12) are equally more complex than DX11, on which GTA V was based. creating a whole new framework for VR injection – basically everything I had built for GTA V modification was now useless and needed rewriting from scratch. "
The change is the result of six months of full-time work, hence the move to Patreon – at which point you will have to become a patron. Ross has ambitions to add VR support to Cyberpunk 2077, Horizon Zero Dawn and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, too, to which patrons will have access if and when they are released.
While the images above only show the prologue (and snowfall) of Red Dead Redemption 2, it shows the degree of perfection of the game's user interface (at least if you're using a gamepad), but expect hijackings discordant camera whenever the cutscene arrives.
