PAYDAY 2: VR beta 1.1 Hotfix and Stream

+ + + + +

Beta 1.1 Hotfix update

The VR was released yesterday but we are not done yet. There is much to improve and iterate on.

Oculus Support Update

As we keep looking at proper Oculus support, we start out with fixing so that the game can recognize a controller with a joysticks as well as a controller with a touchpad which will enable the Oculus Touch controllers to appear in game.
The game does still require a room scale setup so Oculus players are recommended to use three sensors and touch controllers to be able to play properly.


We apologize for the technical issues we had during the stream today as me and Jules played PAYDAY 2 VR with members of our QA team. Thank you all that tuned in and kept up the good mood in the chat. The stream can be found here:

It all feels so real, I should really not try to rob a bank.
