An Elden Ring VR mod is coming and we have some footage

The countries between are a beautiful, attacking place – “like a dream”, as all the fat stones put it. The surreal mix of beauty and horror would be something to experience through a VR headset, and it just so happens that modder Luke Ross (known for his REAL VR mods for Red Dead Redemption 2 and Cyberpunk 2077) makes Elden Ring VR to one thing. Click on the video above for an exclusive sneak peek.

While Ross is well versed in making third-person VR mods (the Mafia trilogy is an example), for Elden Ring, he optimizes the mod for the first-person perspective. You will also be able to play in the original third-person view even if he does not recommend it.

“The third person in this game is really far away (about 5 meters on average) and it doesn’t work very well in VR,” Ross told me. “Instead of being at the forefront of the action, you’re a bit like ‘Hey, is something going on over there?’ “Nevertheless, I want to leave the original camera as an option for purists. I will probably also add an intermediate camera, close to the third person. But I think the first person camera is where it is.”

That’s a fair point, though I have to say that in the case of the Elden Ring, “something’s happening over there” could be a catstone gargoyle lurking around a corner, or a Tree Sentinel riding in to spit on you. , while slaughtering a herd of wandering nobles. Controlling the camera regardless of your character can really save your skin. On the other hand, you will probably be in a much better position to time these pairings to perfection when a hellebard is heading towards the side of your actual head.
