While there was some evidence that Rockstar was experimenting with Virtual Reality while developing Red Dead Redemption 2, no official VR mode has ever been released. Fortunately, modders are stepping in to fill the void.
As one of the most immersive games ever made, Red Dead Redemption 2 is a prime candidate for VR support. The modder behind the R.E.A.L mod for Grand Theft Auto V, Luke Ross, is back with a VR mod for Red Dead Redemption 2. UploadVR was amongst the first to try it out, uploading half an hour of VR gameplay footage to YouTube:
The mod is still in early access, so the only way to play it early is to be part of Ross’s Patreon. The mod supports all major VR headsets, so whether you’re using an Oculus Rift/Quest, a HTC VIVE, a Valve Index or another headset, the game should work.
Of course it is worth keeping in mind that Red Dead Redemption 2 is already a very demanding game, so maintaining high frame rates while playing in VR is going to be a challenge.
