Elden Ring was one of the best games released in 2022 so far. The game managed to keep the Soulsborne experience intact while still providing a great gaming experience. As it is also available on PC, it was only a matter of time before modders took over and created mods that the community could enjoy. Now one of them is working on a VR mod for the game, and it looks amazing.
The mod is being developed by Luke Ross who is a well known name in the mod community. He also worked on REAL VR mods for Cyberpunk 2077 and Red Dead Redemption 2.
In a conversation with PC Gamer, he revealed that the mod will allow players to play in third and first person as well. However, he does not endorse playing in third person because he feels that “the third person in this game is too far away (about 5 meters on average) and that doesn’t work very well in VR”. He also uploaded a video that gave us a little glimpse of what the mod will look like. Check out the video below:
Additionally, Ross also mentioned how this VR mod will handle the potential motion sickness issue considering the ungodly amount of rolling a player does in the game. “When scrolling or running other scripted animations such as combat moves, the camera follows the character’s head (so its position changes) but remains oriented correctly according to what your head is doing in real life. the horizon will remain level and the world will always seem stable.” Furthermore, he also mentioned that this mod works best for people already well versed in VR games.
So far, the community has seen a bunch of great mods for the game. From one that invokes the ‘Let Me Solo Her’ legend, to the ‘Easy Mode’ mod that makes the gaming experience less painful, there are some great options to choose from. There’s also one that removes Bandai Namco’s blinding logo at first to save your eyesight.
While these mods are great, the VR mod will definitely be a game changer as it will allow players to experience an already amazing game from a whole different perspective. It will be available on your ‘REAL VR’ Patreon.
