How to…Play the Cyberpunk 2077 VR Mod

As gmw3 reported last week virtual reality (VR) modder Luke Ross has been working on a new mod for CD Projekt Red’s Cyberpunk 2077. Ross has now released the Cyberpunk 2077 R.E.A.L VR Mod and here’s how you can access and play the futuristic open-world title in VR.

Having previously developed mods for the likes of Red Dead Redemption 2 and GTA V, Ross is very well acquainted with bringing flatscreen titles into VR. There are some caveats, of course, these videogames haven’t been designed for VR so the mod doesn’t offer motion controller support for example.

Even so, there’s still full head tracking which can be used for aiming and locomotion. And it still means you can immerse yourself CD Projekt Red’s cyberpunk universe, if you’re still playing that is. Cyberpunk 2077 got off to a very rocky start when it launched back in 2020. The studio released its latest patch for Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 last month, improving the experience for users.

Now onto Cyberpunk 2077 in VR! This is only for the PC version so you’ll need a copy of the videogame on Steam before proceeding.

  • First up you’ll need to join Ross’ official Patreon – you can join from £8 GBP ($10 USD per month. You’ll also gain access to all of his other R.E.A.L. VR mods (which should keep you busy).
  • Next, download the Cyberpunk 2077 VR mod and unzip the file (there will be three files after unzipping).
  • Then head to Steam and right-click Cyberpunk 2077 in your library list, select properties>local files>browse.
  • Locate the “bin” folder, open that and then open the “x64” folder. Copy and paste the three unzipped files, replacing them if prompted.
  • You’ll then need to run the “RealConfig.bat” file in the “x64” folder by double-clicking it. If a Windows notification appears select “run anyway”.
  • And that’s it, enjoy Cyberpunk 2077 in VR.

To see the VR mod in action Cas and Chary have a whole gameplay video for you, plus at the end there’s more info on how to install the mod. For further updates on the latest VR mods, keep reading gmw3.
