As detailed from Wccftech, the mod can be found in NexusMods (where you can also see a video demonstration). This one has been created by Brandon Mousseau, and as far as requirements go, you will first need to install the BepInEx mod framework for it to work. On the other hand, you should also take into account the following:

  • Vulkan support does not work, so you must run DX11 instead.
  • Launch SteamVR and close the Steam VR panel before starting the game
  • Disable Bloom and Anti-aliasing in graphics settings.

In addition, it ensures that “This Valheim VR mod is primarily intended to be played in first person, but it supports zooming out with the mouse wheel towards a third-person overhead camera if you prefer. I included this primarily to help get better angles when building things, but play however you want. “.

Finally, the creator of the mod also gives a series of tips and indications to alleviate the inconvenience caused in the controls by the fact that the character’s head is not visible. Something you are working on to achieve more optimal results.
