Pink Useless Redemption 2 is now playable in VR, due to the creator of the most effective GTA V VR mod
The creator of the R.E.A.L GTA 5 VR mod has simply launched a VR help mod for Pink Useless Redemption 2. Accessible by way of modder Luke Ross’s Patreon web page, the mod is at present in ‘Early Entry’ and can proceed to obtain extra enhancements over time. Judging by the footage above (courtesy of UploadVR) it’s trying fairly rattling good, and the entire sport is playable in both first- or third-person perspective.
Ross explains on his Patreon that constructing VR help for Pink Useless Redemption 2 required a ground-up strategy: the code for his GTA 5 mod couldn’t function a base for this undertaking. “The sport is rather more superior than GTA V from a technical viewpoint,” Ross explains, “and the graphics API it helps (Vulkan and DX12) are equally extra complicated than DX11, on which GTA V was based mostly. I needed to create an entire new framework for VR injection: principally the whole lot I had constructed for GTA V mod was now ineffective and wanted rewriting from scratch.”
The mod is the results of six months full-time work, therefore the transfer to Patreon—you’ll have to grow to be a patron to entry the mod in the mean time. Ross has ambitions so as to add VR help to Cyberpunk 2077, Horizon Zero Daybreak and Murderer’s Creed Valhalla as nicely, which patrons will acquire entry to if and once they’re launched.
