Enthusiast VR modder Luke Ross shared a fresh gameplay video of his VR mod for Cyberpunk 2077, which is slated to release shortly.

Ross has made a few other VR patches for PC games in the past, most notably for Grand Theft Auto V and Red Dead Redemption 2. These modifications still utilized a controller for movement and basic controls, not enabling comprehensive VR motion controls, although they did enable full VR head tracking that could be used for movement and targeting through your dominant eye.

The next Cyberpunk 2077 mod will follow pace, delivering a very similar control paradigm that mixes gamepad controls with VR head tracking. You can see how it works in the video posted above, which offers five minutes of fresh gameplay utilizing Ross’ planned update for the PC version of Cyberpunk 2077.

The mod was unveiled last year, initially aiming for a January 2022 release. Having missed that window, we may anticipate a release at some time in the near future, accessible only on his Patreon.

On his Patreon page, Ross revealed some additional insights regarding performance and choices for the mod, claiming that the former was “unexpectedly” excellent. The video above was recorded using Core i9-9900K and RTX 3090 at 2700×2700 resolution. As one can see on the UI, the FPS fluctuates about 60-65 during the video, however, Ross claims when not filming he gets a consistent 80-90fps.

Ross also claims he’s discovered the ideal method of playing in VR is to “keep most graphics choices on low with no DLSS” which gives you a high degree of clarity and detail that he describes as “astounding”. While you may activate the Ultra settings, along with raytracing, Ross’ opinion is that this appears fine in pictures but “actually provides for a hazier vision in VR.”

Although there is no set date for the launch of this mod yet, with Cyberpunk’s recent 1.5 update improving performance and fixing many bugs, there’s never been a better for the mod to release either.
