I love a spot of virtual tourism, me. During the pandemic, I would scratch my travelling itches with some nice big sessions on Google Earth VR, where I would retrace my steps from holidays of old or explore new places I’ve always wanted to go.

But those little imaginary expeditions pale in comparison to being able to actually wander around fully realised virtual worlds as a tourist, which is basically exactly what I did in this week’s VR Corner thanks to a brand new update for Luke Ross’ REAL VR mod. By the way, REAL stands for ‘Reality Enhancement Augmentation Layer’ if you’ve ever wondered!

There’s so much variety to the environments and buildings and so many lovely little details for you to lean towards and inspect. These range from the first person interiors of the game’s cars, through to some of the most delicious looking muffins I’ve ever seen and even Aidan Pearce’s teeth!
