It has to be said that the mod is still in early access, and that its creator will continue to improve some aspects after six months of hard work. You can download this Red Dead Redemption 2 mod from Luke Ross’ Patreon page, the creator of the GTA 5 VR mod. In addition, it is possible enjoy it in the first or third person, depending on the player’s preferences.
Luke Ross explains that the development of this mod has started from scratch. Could not reuse the source code of the GTA 5 mod, since Red Dead Redemption 2 is much more demanding on a technical level and uses an improved graphics engine. It is also important to note that the Rockstar western works with DX12, unlike the DX11 of Grand Theft Auto V. In other words, all the work spent with GTA 5 was for nothing in the development of the Red Dead Redemption 2 VR mod.
”The game is much more advanced than GTA V from a technical point of view, and the graphics API it supports (Vulkan and DX12) are equally more complex than DX11, on which GTA V was based. I had to create a completely new framework for VR injection – basically everything I had built for the GTA V mod was now useless and I needed to rewrite it from scratch” explains the modder.
In order to download the mod, it is necessary subscribe to Luke Ross Patreon. The modder explains that he had to spend more than six months to develop the VR mod for Red Dead Redemption 2, and therefore asks for extra support for his next projects.
