How to install and play the Valheim VR Mod

It's a whole new game!

If you want to install and play the Valheim VR Mod, you must start by visiting the mod's official page on the Nexus mod website. When visiting the mod page for Valheim VR, you want to download the latest version of the mod. You can download the newest version by going into the file section on the mod page and grabbing the latest download. But besides the most updated version of the mod, you will also need to download BepInExPack Valheim

BepInExPack is a general purpose framework for Unity modding, which the Valheim VR mod requires to run. That said, you can find the BeiInExPack on its mod page over at the Thunderstore website. Download both the latest versions of the Valheim VR Mod and BeiInExPack, and you are ready to start installing Valheim VR. 

The first step for installing Valheim VR after downloading all required files is to open the VR mod's folder and move the following files into the Valheim Steam game folder:

  • BepinEx
  • Valheim_Data

That said, after copying over the contents of the Valheim VR mod, the next step is to move the files inside BeiInExPack into the Valheim game folder. During this next step, you will want to highlight all files inside the BepInExPack_Valheim folder and copy them into the game directory, as shown below.

After copying all files inside the BepInExPack_Valheim folder, you will have just installed the Valheim VR mod. But, if you have done all steps correctly, your game folder should look like our image listed below.

  • Change Game resolution to 1080p

After changing your resolution and all other settings listed above, you must restart your game for all the changes to take effect. Afterward, you can play Valheim VR by joining a friend's game with the mod or creating a world in Single-player.
