There's a new mod available for Grand Theft Auto V that allows you to experience the entire story mode in first-person VR. This is great news if your VR headset has been gathering dust, or if you've just picked one up, ready for the release of Half-Life: Alyx. Of course, it goes without saying that this mod will only work on the PC version of GTA V.
The mod in question is called R.E.A.L and was created by Reddit user LukeRoss00, and while it seems that modders have been trying to recreate GTA V as a fully VR experience for quite some time, this is the first that has really succeeded in doing so.
The latest update to the mod even includes the full implementation of cutscenes in the story mode: "Great news for those of you who like to play the story missions in VR: I finally came up with a universal FOV fix that also works in cutscenes! No more in-your-face characters, no more camera zooms, no more world warping when you turn your head!!"
The most recent update has also addressed a number of compatibility issues and has made the set-up process so much easier. And if your PC is powerful enough to handle it, you can also run it with other graphical GTA V mods, the likes of GTA 5 Redux, M.V.G.A., VisualV, and NaturalVision Remastered.
Rockstar's stance is fairly relaxed when it comes to players modding GTA V, providing the activity is confined to the single-player story mode. "Rockstar Games believes in reasonable fan creativity, and, in particular, wants creators to showcase their passion for our games," states the support page. Keeping mods away from multiplayer or online content seems like a smart move as you're not affecting anyone else's gameplay but your own.
For a game that was released in 2013, GTA V certainly isn't doing badly. Earlier this month, it was revealed to be the best selling game of the decade in the UK according to the Official Ukie Games Charts. And, perhaps more importantly, it was voted best game of the decade on LADbible's Twitter poll at the end of last year. Respect where it's due - but Rockstar's game only came in at seven on GAMINGbible's own list of the best games of the last 10 years, and we know what we're talking about. Right? Right.
