With the official modding tool Pistol Mix, fans can now create their own levels for Pistol Whip.
The open beta starts today. Those interested can download the program on the Cloudhead Games Discord server or on the modding platform mod.io. The official launch of the modding tool is scheduled for May 31st.
The new modding functionality only applies to the PC VR version of the game.
Fans can build custom levels from the ground up, choosing their own soundtrack, enemy selection and placement, environmental design, colors and lighting, special effects, and more.
“From new reimaginings of iconic game experiences, to sheer meme madness, the ability to mod VR games has become a beloved backbone of the community,” the studio writes. “The team at Cloudhead Games is thrilled to throw open the doors to the VR modding community, inviting them to remix this classic game to their own unique beat, and create the Scenes of their dreams.”
