Get closer to the violence in Los Santos.

Want to see GTA 5 as a VR game? Of course you do.

This mod adds hand tracking to Rockstar’s crime sim, and according to the creator, in virtual reality it really emphasizes the level of violence.

“I’m really not sure about this,” he wrote. I feel horrible about making this. You actually feel guilty. My mouth dropped the first time I shot someone in my GTA: V VR setup.”

According to further posts on Reddit, the creator says it’s important to acknoweldge how VR makes the violence in a game feel more real.

“I think it’s important to talk about that, especially because this is something that might end up on my portfolio in a professional environment. I feel like I’m looking at a crime scene every time I mess with this. It’s a serious concern. Other people won’t understand until they try it.”

The mod is work-in-progress at the moment. You can follow for updates here.
