Heads Up: Hellblade 2 Is Already Playable In VR Using The UEVR Mod

You need a beefy PC though.

Story Highlights

  • Hellblade 2 is already playable in VR despite no official support from Ninja Theory.
  • You can play it in VR using the UEVR mod, which works both in the first and third person.
  • The modder alleges that we’ll need a beefy PC to handle the strain of playing it in VR.

Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2 has taken the world by storm because of its realistic and cinematic visuals. We’ve hardly recovered from what the game has to offer, but now you can already have a go at it in full 6DOF VR. Praydog’s popular UEVR mod supports it in both the first and third-person modes, which means you can have a complete cinematic experience without paying a dime. The Flat2VR YouTuber showcases the mod in all its glory.

If you’re unfamiliar, the UEVR mod is able to inject VR support into almost all games that are built using Unreal Engine. The original title did get official VR support in a later update, but Ninja Theory has been silent about the feature in the sequel. So, using the unofficial mod is currently the best way to enjoy the game in VR.

Hellblade 2 Is An Unimaginable Treat To Experience In VR

The video shows some VR gameplay moments that look absolutely stunning, to the point where it almost feels like watching a movie. The modding group also refers to it as “one of the best-looking VR experiences you can possibly see in VR today.” However, one pet peeve is that you’ll need an extremely high-end PC to enjoy the VR Hellblade 2 experience.
