Portal 2 VR mod gets an early release

By - | Views: 30,065

Still one of the best puzzle games ever made, Valve's Portal 2 now has a community-made VR mod available in the early stages that's already quite impressive. The mod works, although it's certainly a little rough around the edges with various bits not quite hooked up yet. Even so, it's impressive what modders are able to do with bringing games into the VR space.

From the mod GitHub it notes that single-player, 6DoF VR view, motion controls for the portal gun, grabbing objects and Workshop content work. And since the most recent update, the in-game menu now works too. They haven't hooked up the full UI yet though but it's playable enough to have a bit of fun with.

I decided to check it out and captured some footage of me fooling around in it. Using Proton, since I couldn't get it to work with Valve's original Native Linux build, along with my Valve Index headset:

Really impressive and they're working on it regularly, so it should just keep getting better.

You can buy Portal 2 on Steam and see the VR Mod on GitHub.
