It’s a lovely Sunday here in the UK, so what better way to enjoy the sunshine than by going on a hike – but this one will be a bit different as Ian Higton will be doing that his hiking as a viking in glorious VR! On this week’s Ian’s VR Corner, Ian is heading to Valheim to try out the brand new Valheim VR mod. This mod is still a work in progress, so expect it to be a bit rough around the edges, but it also gives Ian a good chance to try out his brand new gaming PC as VR Valheim can be quite intense to run!
