WoW VR is not for now

In view of the video shared by said creator, a Mod or even a VR extension of World of Warcraft is not yet available. La version VR de World of Warcraft created by Puffy Cheeks runs under the game engine Unity. So hasno possibility of playing a character nor to interact with NPCs. While the visual rendering of the content remains quite coarse for a game such as WoW.

If for the Blizzard publisher, a WoW VR porting is not relevant, it is possible to see many videos blooming on VR content. Indeed, on the different fan communities, many subjects evoke WoW in VR, without success. Yet the fans do not despair.

For the moment, the only possibilities of playing WoW VR is not 100% guaranteed. Recently, VR MMORPG projects have started to pop up everywhere, such as the one inspired by the famous animated Sword Art Online, so it is not impossible to see VR content projects emanating from Blizzard.
