If you’re eagerly awaiting Oculus’ v28 software update to test out the new features for Oculus Quest 2 then you’re not alone. The wait is made even more difficult as developers begin to announce project support for its experimental 120Hz refresh mode, the latest announced by Pixel Edge Games for Racket Fury: Table Tennis VR.
To the best of VRFocus’ knowledge, this is the second Oculus Quest 2 videogame to confirm 120Hz support, the first being puzzle title Cubism. Having 120Hz support in a slow, methodical title like Cubism is all well and good but Racket Fury: Table Tennis VR should be an even better showcase for super-smooth table tennis gameplay.
As mentioned, Racket Fury: Table Tennis VR might have to wait a bit to test the feature out. Whilst it’s great that Pixel Edge Games has been so quick to implement the feature, as v28 is being gradually rolled out there’s no telling when your Quest 2 might update. This is an Oculus Quest 2 only feature, as the original headset doesn’t have the processing power. Once the update does arrive you’ll need to able 120Hz via the Oculus Experimental Features in settings and then in Racket Fury’s video option setting.
Racket Fury: Table Tennis VR was an original launch title for Oculus Quest back in 2019, offering a single-player campaign as well as a multiplayer mode. Solo, you face 16 robotic opponents on the way to the finale, which allows you to compete against opponents from around the world with global rankings. Other features include being able to switch between Arcade and Simulation physics depending on how realistic you want your table tennis to be, and a variety of selectable arenas to play in.
VRFocus expects this trend to continue as developers try to implement 120Hz support, however, don’t expect all titles to do so. The extra workload it puts on the Oculus Quest 2 means performance heavy videogames just won’t be capable. But 120Hz could come as a standard feature in future releases.
VRFocus will continue its coverage of Racket Fury: Table Tennis VR as well as any other Quest titles adding 120Hz support, reporting back with regular updates.
