Rec Room’s biggest game mode arrives soon on Quest 2 headsets.
This week the developers behind popular social VR experience Rec Room announced the arrival of a new game mode and quest on the Oculus Quest 2, content that was previously exclusive to PC VR headsets due to the limited power of the original Oculus Quest.
With the arrival of the Oculus Quest 2 comes a custom Qualcomm Snapdragon XR2 chipset and 2k per eye resolution, offering increased processing power as well as improved visuals. All of these upgrades have allowed the Rec Room team to bring even more content to the new-and-improved standalone VR headset, including “Battle Royale” mode and the cooperative pirate-themed quest “Isle of the Lost Skulls.”
Available now to all Quest 2 users, “Isle of the Lost Skulls” takes you and two other players on an epic pirate adventure that will have you breaking out of prison, battling deadly skeletons and swashbucklers, exploring pitch black caverns, and clearing enemy ships in search of gold treasure. The journey begins with you locked below deck in a jail cell. After breaking free of your chains, you’ll embark on an 8-part quest ending with a duel aboard a haunted ship.
Rec Room has also confirmed the arrival of “Battle Royale” on Quest 2, an intense PvP game mode that pits 14 – 16 players against one another in a deadly game of “Last Man Standing.” You can glide into the action on your own or in teams of three. Once on the ground, you and your crew can loot buildings for weapons and supplies and take on other players across a shrinking battlefield. Rec Room has yet to confirm exactly when “Battle Royale” mode will arrive on Oculus Quest 2.
Unfortunately, these new additions do not apply to the original Oculus Quest. At the time of this writing, Rec Room for Quest 2 is still missing the “Crescendo of the Blood Moon” co-op quest as well as the “Soccer” PvP game mode.
Rec Room is available free on Oculus Quest 2 via the Oculus Store. The game can also be accessed via the Oculus Quest and PC VR headsets, as well compatible iOS and Android devices.
