I’ve been playing VR for a really long time now so my legs are pretty strong but when legendary flatscreen VR modder Raicuparta approached me with a preview of his Neon White VR mod I have to admit I was a little worried.
Surely a lightning-fast game like this would push me to the brink? I thought. But, oh my god, how wrong I was. Not only was playing Neon White in VR a thoroughly comfortable experience (for me – newcomers to VR, beware!), but it also felt like the perfect “just one more shot” VR game.
Playing Neon White in VR was my very first experience with the game, flat or not, and honestly, it felt like the medium perfectly. You can watch me demonstrate how this mod affects Neon White’s gameplay in this week’s episode of VR Corner, which shows me swearing through a good chunk of Mission 3 levels.
Unless you’ve already watched the video (and if you have, thank you, I love you), what you won’t know is that Rai’s mod also adds motion controls to the game , and these are fully mapped to motion controllers. you choose to use. It’s an incredibly impressive feat that’s topped off with the addition of a few free-to-use weapon models that the player can hold.
The flat version has no visible weapons, so by bringing those extra goodies Rai has further enhanced immersion by giving the player something to aim and shoot. This, along with the 6DoF view, gives you a lot more spatial awareness and freedom of movement compared to the flat version of the game and it really grounds you in the heavenly world of Neon White.
The full version of the Neon White VR mod should be out in the next few days, but if you head over to Raicuparta’s website right now, you should be able to find out more about when you can get this fantastic mod for yourself. .
