Cloudhead Games announced that Pistol Mix, the official Pistol Whip modding tool, will now arrive on June 14 for PC VR, with the open beta extended until then.
Note: This article was first published on April 13. It was updated and republished with a new headline, lede and minor edits to reflect the delayed release date.
First revealed during our Upload VR Showcase Winter 2022, Pistol Mix is the anticipated modding tool for creating custom scenes in Pistol Whip which, unsurprisingly, is only available for the PC VR edition.
“Build a custom Scene from the ground up, including audio track, selection and placement of enemies, environment design, colours and lighting, then share your custom ‘Remixed’ Scene with the world on mod.io” confirms Cloudhead. You see this in action below:
Pistol Mix was set to officially launch on May 31, but will now release on June 14. The open beta remains live until then for anyone looking to try it sooner. Available to download through Cloudhead’s Discord server or mod.io, custom creations can then be shared and downloaded through this platform. Once the tool reaches full release remixes will be accessible directly inside the headset from Pistol Whip.
Pistol Whip is available now on the Meta Quest platform, PC VR, Pico 4, PSVR, and PSVR 2. While a PC is required to use Pistol Mix itself, Cloudhead tells UploadVR you can play modded scenes on Steam, Rift, and Quest versions.
Update on May 2, 2023: A previous version of this article advised Pistol Mix was PC exclusive. We've updated this article to reflect that modded scenes are also playable on Quest.
