Deep Rock Galactic VR Mod Now in Open Beta
The VR mod for Deep Rock Galactic is now available in Open Beta and can be downloaded at mod.io. You can also find the relevant instructions there.
Deep Rock Galactic is a great co-op title that now has a full VR mod thanks to the efforts of the VR modding community.
Lots of awesome video games have been released over the past two decades. Unfortunately, most of these still don’t have VR support at a time when VR gaming is growing in popularity and while the repertoire of VR titles is growing, it still doesn’t reach the level of variety and choice that you’ll have for 2D screens. These mods are, therefore, adding variety and value to the VR ecosystem. Most are often made by committed modders working quietly in discord channels but as the Deep Rock Galactic VR mod shows, the outcome can be impressive.
In recent years, we have seen VR mods for hit games like Alien: Isolation, GTFO, Red Dead Redemption 2, Valheim, Resident Evil, Half-Life 2, and Risk of Rain 2 among others. The dwarf hit title Deep Rock Galactic is just the latest title to get a VR mod.
Deep Rock Galactic with VR Crossplay
The comprehensive modding of Deep Rock Galactic was done by a team led by Mr. Fristi. The mod even includes motion controls. The mod brings all functions of the co-op title into VR. It also supports crossplay enabling VR players to play with players on 2D screens as long as they have the mod installed in their gadgets. Existing saves should also be compatible with the virtual reality mod.
Deep Rock Galactic is a multiplayer title where up to four players get into a mine as space dwarves. The bearded team must collect rare resources in procedurally-generated and entirely destructible caves located on a dangerous alien planet.
The mining quest is frequently disrupted by alien hordes. Players have to defend themselves using all sorts of equipment and weapons. Players can acquire skills and upgrade their equipment between missions.
VR Mods Have Been a Boon on PC VR
VR modders have been adding to the repertoire of VR titles by porting several game hits and the PC VR platform has been the biggest beneficiary of the mods. However, players on the standalone PlayStation VR and Meta Quest 2 don’t have access to these mods. Some modders such as Luke Ross have even transformed their modding hobby into a profession.
The Deep Rock Galactic VR mod is now in open beta. For information on the mod, check out the Flat to VR Modders discord.
