Original May 19 article:
Deep Rock Galactic is an awesome co-op title that’s now getting a full VR mode thanks to the eager modding community.
There are many good video games, but few of them offer VR support – a problem that a diligent modding community has been correcting title by title for years. VR mods for gaming hits like Alien: Isolation, Half-Life 2, GTFO, Minecraft, Red Dead Redemption 2, Resident Evil, Valheim or Risk of Rain 2 offer everything that gaming -Heart desires.
With the dwarf hit Deep Rock Galactic, the next VR port is in the starting blocks.
Deep Rock Galactic with VR Crossplay
A team led by modder Mr. Fristi is working on a comprehensive VR mod for Deep Rock Galactic, including motion controls. With the mod, all functions of the co-op title should be available in VR and VR players should be able to play together with monitor players – provided they also have the mod installed. Existing saves should also be compatible with the VR mod.
In Deep Rock Galactic, up to four players go into the mine as space dwarves: The bearded team has to collect rare resources in procedurally generated and completely destructible caves on a dangerous alien planet.
The mining work is regularly disturbed by alien hordes. Players defend themselves with all sorts of weapons and equipment. Skills can be acquired and equipment upgraded between missions.
VR mods are the power of PC VR
As the VR market continues to await the new Half-Life: Alyx, VR modders are porting numerous gaming hits or creating game-changing mods like HIGGS for Skyrim VR. This shows the strength of the PC platform, which historically has always benefited from mods. Unfortunately, players who use Sony’s Playstation VR or only the standalone mode of the Quest 2 have to do without this access. VR modder Luke Ross has even turned his hobby into a profession.
The VR mod for Deep Rock Galactic is currently in a closed test phase. However, an open beta is to follow shortly, in which problems that still exist are to be found and solved. All information is available in the Flat to VR Modders discord.
