Payday 2 VR is now available for beta testing on PC. It’s free to access for all owners of the standard Payday 2 game. In order to play the game in virtual reality, you’ll need a HTC Vive headset.
If you have a Vive, follow these simple steps to access the Payday 2 VR beta:
– Find Payday 2 in your Steam library and right-click – select Properties.
– In the Properties window – select the tab called “BETAS.”
– In the drop down menu in the BETAS tab – select “open_vr_beta” and close the window.
What’s cool, is that Payday 2 VR supports cross-play with the standard version, meaning you can squad-up with teammates who don’t possess a Vive. What’s not so cool, is that the Payday 2 VR beta will use a separate save file, and progression won’t be carried over from the vanilla game.
Check out the beta trailer below, which celebrates the release:
