Become More Social in VR as Rec Room Beta Hits PlayStation VR

Today Against Gravity opens the doors to Rec Room for PlayStation VR owners, allowing even more players to interact in the cross-platform experience which supports Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and Windows Mixed Reality.

Released in beta form for free, Rec Room is described by the developer as a ‘VR social club’, allowing users from across the globe to get together in one location and engage in various lighthearted mini-games, such as paintball, disc golf or charades, as well as epic quests and adventures, and new toys in the sandbox machine.

Against Gravity has confirmed that PlayStation VR players won’t need PlayStation Plus to enjoy Rec Room, although if they do pay for the service they get a burst rifle skin in paintball.

Recently the team has added a bunch of new updates including a video screen to the RC Car so that you can now drive in drone mode, making laser tag a full time game, a new group Quest titled The Curse of the Crimson Cauldron, a revamped tutorial, teaching the handshake (add friend), fist bump (party up), and Stop (mute/ignore/report) gestures, the Code of Conduct is highlighted more prominently and the keyboard now has shortcuts for common email addresses.

As for the future, Against Gravity has previously confirmed that a pirate-themed quest will be going live sometime in early 2018.

The studio will be running an AMA on r/PSVR from 10am – 1pm PST (6pm – 9pm GMT) today, for anyone who has a question regarding the videogame. For any further updates on Rec Room, keep reading VRFocus.
