How To Play Elden Ring In VR

Fight demigods and monsters while exploring a magical land.


Elden Ring has finally added its first major DLC update, adding a colosseum to the game. This PVP-focused mode allows players to battle each other one-on-one or in groups. However, did you know one could play Elden Ring on PC VR?

Elden Ring has also officially been dubbed the Game of the Year 2022. So it is the perfect time to try out the game in VR. Players can try out the new content in VR or roam the Lands Between to take in the amazing sights. However, it should be pointed out that this mod makes combat really hard.

Gamers can also check other flatscreen games that can be played in VR (natively or through mods). For more information, check out our guides on how to play games like Cyberpunk 2077, GTA V, Final Fantasy XIV, and Resident Evil Village in VR for free.
