It Is Here!: Elden Ring VR

The game industry is growing steadily, which is hard to keep up with; it is the most exciting and rapidly evolving form of entertainment. It is a multi-billion dollar a year business, and an even bigger industry when taking into account VR headsets. The industry provides the gamers a powerful storytelling medium and, like any other medium before it – from books to film – games have evolved from simple narratives to immersive interactive worlds that engage the player on an emotional level.

There are so many companies aiming to create virtual worlds, but only VR games can give you a truly immersive experience – because only VR games make you feel like you're really there. Therefore, video games become even more immersive with the addition of a VR playing option! Elden Ring is one of those games that has been incredibly popular in 2022, and now can be played with a VR headset! In this article, we want to give you some information about Elden Ring in general and tell you how to try Elden Ring VR!

What Is Elden Ring?

Elden Ring is a third-person action role-playing game developed by FromSoftware, a Japanese company that created Dark Souls and Bloodborne, and published by Bandai Namco Entertainment. Elden Ring isn't the first foray into fantasy settings of FromSoftware either; they also created Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice and Nioh (which was recently remastered for PS4), both of which were set in modern fantasy settings. This time, the story of the game created with the colaboration of Hidetaka Miyazaki and "A Game of Thrones" author George R. R. Martin. The game was announced at E3 in 2019, and it has been released after almost 3 years, on February 25, 2022.

The game features an open world environment with various locations to explore. Players take control of their own custom avatar who can explore a vast open world with many different factions to join and side quests to complete. The game has an original story that takes place after the events of the main series, but also offers an opportunity for players to revisit key locations from the show if they choose so.

What Else Can You Do In Elden Ring?

The gameplay of Elden Ring is similar to Dark Souls and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, where you have to fight against enemies using various weapons like swords, axes, spears, etc. You can also parry attacks from your enemies if they try to attack you from different directions or use magic spells against them if they're resistant against physical attacks only. The game can be played either solo or with up to four players online cooperatively.
The developers also stated that there are plenty of other activities for players to enjoy outside of combat as well. The game is set in a dark fantasy world where players can encounter “a vast, interconnected world in which they will experience the freedom to explore and interact with the world in whatever way they choose.” These include exploring every inch of Elden Ring's beautiful open-world environments and collecting hidden treasures along the way. There are also side quests available for players who want additional challenges outside of their main campaign experience. You will travel across the continent of Elden Ring on your quest to defeat the monsters, while also learning more about their origins and motives behind their desire to destroy everything in their path.

How Can You Play Elden Ring VR With Your VR Headset?

Even though Elden Ring has been released as a video game, a freelance developer, LukeRoss, has released a mod that enables gamers to play Elden Ring with their VR headsets. Since it is an unofficial release, the mod doesn't include the VR controller support yet. Still, if you have a VR headset and are willing to experience the game from a virtual reality point of view before the controller support comes, you should definitely try it with this fantastic mod! The mod can be used with any of the PCVR headsets and it is available for a $10 subscription on Patreon, alongside many of the VR mods of the creator LukeRoss. After downloading the mod "R.E.A.L.
