Developer Creates Oculus Rift Mod For Elder Scrolls Online
Peter Donnell / 4 years ago
Developer Chris Gallizzi decided to take on the personal project of adding Oculus Rift to The Elder Scrolls Online, and while this means that we have no idea if the game will get official support for the Oculus Rift, it certainly acts as a great technical demonstration to show that it can be done.
Support for the Oculus Rift in Elder Scrolls Online was created from scratch by Gallizzi, but having already created his Vireio Perception Driver for his previous N64 and Skyrim mods, he already has a fair bit of experience in the subject.
While he is an experienced Oculus driver and output writer, he did say that he was annoyed about having to lower settings to get an optimal frame rate of 60fps, which is required to make the VR more effective.
Oculus Rift is unfortunately still not available at retail and while you can get developer units, the resolution just isn’t what you want for gameplay, fingers crossed this mod as well as the retail headset will become available in the near future.
