3dRudder is proud to announce that an increasing number of VR blockbusters will offer native support of the VR controller throughout the year. First to partner with 3dRudder to offer an upgraded experience to gamers is the Best VR Game nominee Dead Effect 2 VR.
BadFly Interactive, the studio behind the game, sold millions of copies of Dead Effect 1 and 2, and the VR release successfully ranks among the top VR games. That probably explains why Dead Effect 2 VR is often referred as one of the best VR FPS.
What’s Dead Effect 2 VR about?
Dead Effect 2 VR is the newest addition to the acclaimed Dead Effect franchise. This action sci-fi shooter is looking to push the boundaries of first-person shooters to new levels with slick graphics, rich narrative and RPG elements.
You can play the single-player missions at your own pace or engage your friends in the cooperative or PvP multiplayer mode; train, develop your character, collect and upgrade countless weapons, gear and body implants and take control of the monster-infested ship.
What difference does the 3dRudder make?
Badfly Interactive explains that integration of the 3dRudder will provide enhanced gaming experience to players and states that enabling foot-controlled motion is something that will change the way players experience VR. With hands rid of motion management, players now can fully focus on collecting, shooting, reloading, and killing enemies takes a brand-new dimension. Being able to play comfortably seated for hours is the icing on the cake.
How to get started?
If you’re about to buy Dead Effect 2 VR (as we wisely advise you to do!), no questions asked, download the game from Steam VR and you’ll have the latest release including native support for the 3dRudder.
For those of you who already own Dead Effect 2 VR, an update will automatically load next time you’ll start the game. Once the update is done, go check the game settings to see the menu’s been enriched with 3dRudder’s controls.
Now that you have the latest version of Dead Effect 2 VR, and that’s the beauty of native support: there’s nothing else to do. Just plug the 3dRudder to your computer. The game will automatically activate the 3dRudder as a motion controller with the right settings. All you need to do is sit on a comfortable chair, rest your feet on the 3dRudder, grab your hand controllers, your headset, and experience the game like never before.

No problem! Go to the control panel, and click “3dRudder settings” to access the 3dRudder dedicated control panel and adjust deadzone and sensitivity levels for each axis.
