When playing the game in virtual reality mode players will have access to several new features, including a new 3D head-up display that is attached to the left or right hand and the ability to interact with the world in 3D space.

Thus far only support for the HTC Vive was shown, but it is likely that the game will also support the Oculus Rift.

The update is scheduled to launch later this year and will be available for all Payday 2 owners. Players who play with the virtual reality mode enabled will be still be able to play against people who play on the default version of the game.
