If the idea of modding seems beyond you, don’t worry! Adding mods to your Blade and Sorcery game is surprisingly easy. Scroll to the bottom to find some quick pointers on modding your game.
Best Blade and Sorcery Mods
1. The Outer Rim (Star Wars)
Everyone who has ever put on their headset has thought about what it would be like to play a Jedi or Sith Lord in virtual reality. This mod brings that dream to life!
The Outer Rim is a Star Wars total conversion mod that adds lightsabers (with kyber crystals), blasters, custom maps, custom NPCs, new waves of enemies, force push and jumping and a new home base!
2. Earthbending (Avatar: The Last Airbender)
Harness the power of the ground all around you with Earthbending!
Inspired by Avatar: The Last Airbender, this mod adds a new spell that lets you hurl rocks, shatter ground, pull walls from the ground and then blast them at enemies!
You can also imbue weapons and combine spells for even crazier combinations!
3. Witchcraft and Wizardry (Harry Potter)
“In dreams, we enter a world that’s entirely our own.”
You knew someone was going to do it, it’s too good of an idea not to. User piepop101 has brought the world of Harry Potter to Blade and Sorcery for us!
Witchcraft and Wizardry is another complete overhaul mod that adds two custom maps, Diagon Alley and a Quidditch Field!
It’s got two brooms, Nimbus 2000 and Transylvanian Barb that you can actually fly around on!
You can wield the Elder Wand which adds 6 new spells, Avada Kedavera, Crucio, Petrificus Totalis, Bombarda, Everte Statum, and Incendio. That’s not the only weapon, it also adds the legandary Sword of Gryffindor and a rather aggressive Golden Snitch.
4. Trials of the Shinobi (Naruto)
Another total conversion mod from piepop101, this mod is inspired by the popular anime.
Trails of the Shinobi adds a ton of custom melee weapons pulls straight out of the show. It also adds 4 whole maps and an awesome set of jutsu techniques to live out your ninja dreams.
There’s so much in this mod, hit the link at the top to see the whole list!
6. Katana megapack
Surprisingly, the Blade and Sorcery base game doesn’t have any katanas. Our first weapon mod choice exceeds all expectations!
The Katana Megapack is a weapon pack that adds 22 new katanas and other Japanese inspired weapons from a variety of time periods. Even cooler, all these blades come with their own saya (scabbards), that can be held and attached to your holster!
7. Medieval Megapack
Our second weapon mod gives us access to an eye-watering 300+ new weapons to choose from. Testing out all of these is going to add a whole lot of hours to your time played!
There’s a huge variety of realistic to completely fantastical weapons, and a handful of totally mundane weapons to dominate your enemies with. My personal favorites include the cast-iron frying pan and the rolling pin!
8. Bloodborne – Hunters Arsenal
There are a number of mods inspired by FromSoftware games, but this one is one of the best. It adds an impressive number of weapons from the hit game, with surprising quality!
If you love the crazy fantastical weapons from Bloodborne, this mod is a must-have.
9. Yondu’s Yaka Arrow (Guardians of the Galaxy)
Remember that awesome scene from Guardians of the Galaxy, where Yondu sends his flying arrow through countless mutineers? This mod is that scene put into virtual reality.
It may not be the obvious choice for a marvel inspired mod, but it is so, so welcome.
10. Spider (Spider-Man)
Ever wonder what it’d be like to web-sling around in virtual reality? How about throwing around the bad guys with webs?
That’s what this mod is! Channel your inner Spider-Man, tripping up, disarming, and webbing enemies to random objects!
11. Ultimate Fantasy Pack
Similar to the Medieval Megapack, the Ultimate Fantasy Pack introduces over 130 new weapons to play with! These weapons have a fantasy, magical, flashy theme to them.
These weapons are grouped further into categories like elven, dwarven, demonic and much more.
How to get mods
Modding your game is surprisingly easy, but there are a few catches.
First off, this list of mods is for the PCVR version of Blade and Sorcery (through steam or the Occulus website). If you’re playing Blade and Sorcery: Nomad (the Occulus Quest version), these mods won’t work for you. Don’t worry, it is possible to mod Blade and Sorcery: Nomad. They’re technically two separate games, with different capabilities.
The easiest way to get and install mods is through Nexus Mods’ own Vortex installer. You’ll need to make an account before you can install Vortex, or any other mods from Nexus Mods.
You’ll install this program, and go through a short process of selecting the Blade and Sorcery installation path under the Games tab.
Once you’ve found a mod on Nexus Mods, look over on the right hand side of the page to where it says download. Select ‘Vortex’, and then on the next page hit ‘Slow Download’.
The mod should now be downloading through your Vortex installer. Find your mod under the ‘Downloads’ tab and select ‘Install’ on the right hand side once it has finished downloading.
Vortex will asks you to enable the mod, you will need to do this in order for the mod to show up in the game.
You should now be able to launch the game and experience some new gameplay!
A couple of other notes, be careful with how many mods you install! The more you add, the harder the game becomes for your PC to run. Additionally, mods sometimes conflict with each other, leading to bugs and crashes.
Lastly, some mods need to be manually installed. This is a similar process, but instead of hitting ‘Vortex’, you instead select ‘Manual’ and then extract the downloaded file to the proper place in the game directory. Likely under ‘streamingassets’ or ‘mods’.
If you need more guidance, there are a ton of videos and written tutorials out there!
