With more and more people getting into VR, people who own the Oculus Quest might be looking for games they can play with friends who also have a VR headset.
A list of some of the best multiplayer games that are available on the Quest Store has been put together by us. We’ve also marked which games allow for cross-platform play (meaning that you can play with an owner of a non-Quest VR headset). Here are our top 15 multiplayer VR games for the Oculus Quest, based on how well they work.
The Under Presents
The Under Presents is a mix of a game, an experience, and live VR theatre. It’s somewhere in the middle. It brings in other people in a new and exciting way that we haven’t seen anywhere else.
During your journey through The Under Presents, you’ll meet other players who look just like you. They’ll be dressed in dark clothes and have gold masks on their faces. If you want to communicate with them, you have to use gestures. You don’t know who these people are or where they come from. This is how the developers of Tender Claws plan to use The Under Presents. It will be a place where multiplayer and live VR content will rotate. A 45-minute introduction to the world of The Under Presents is also free.
The Under Presents’ live-from-VR interactive multiplayer performances of Shakespeare’s The Tempest will be back this March for a short time, but only for a short time.
Do you like to play cards? Do you like to play poker with your friends? No, they don’t. Well, then, you’re set with PokerStars VR 100% of the time now. It’s by far the most prominent poker title available on VR headsets, and you and your friends will be able to join a plethora of online tables to play poker just like in real life. You can even light a virtual cigar to get the right poker table feel, even though a cigar that is just for looks isn’t very useful. PokerStars VR is a game where you play virtual poker with your friends. It’s simple as that.
Is there cross-platform play?
Cook-Out: A Sandwich Tale
Cook-Out: A Sandwich Tale is a great game to play with your friends. It’s a lot of fun. There is less movement across the map and more on-the-spot sandwich making in this game than there was in Overcooked! Because each person will have to make food and put it together into sandwiches for customers, the general idea is the same. This means that each person will have to work together and coordinate to make the sandwiches on time.
Is there cross-platform play?
AZ Sunshine is a zombie shooter with a campaign that lasts 4+ hours and a wave-based horde mode as well. You can play with a friend who also has the game on Quest. The campaign and the horde mode both have multiplayer, so you can play with someone who also has the game on Quest.
Arizona Sunshine has been around in the VR world for a while now, but it’s still a good choice for Quest players who want to play waves of enemies together or take part in a full co-op campaign. And as of April, the Oculus Quest version of the game has also been given all the same DLC and post-launch content as the PC VR version of the game.
Carly and the Reaperman
Carly and the Reaperman is a third-person platform game that has a lot of interesting ideas about co-op play, so it’s worth a look. One player is in charge of Carly, a young girl who is going on a trip to the Underworld. Reaperman: The other person is the Reaperman, and he helps Carly by picking up blocks, torches, or switches to make or show her new paths.
If you have two Oculus Quest headsets, you can both play in VR at the same time. If you only have one Quest, the second player can use a free game client on a computer to control Carly, while the first player is in VR as the Reaperman.
There is no cross-platform play. Only two Quest headsets can be used for VR co-op with two other people. Asymmetrical co-op can be played on a PC or a Mac.
Walkabout Mini Golf VR
You can play Walkabout Mini Golf VR on Quest, and it’s one of the most popular VR mini golf games on the service. You and up to four other people can play in a private room with the help of matchmaking. Each of the courses has a unique theme with some very difficult obstacles. Secret balls can be found at each hole, giving you a secondary goal to keep an eye out for.
Between Quest and Rift, yes.
No Man’s Sky VR
No Man’s Sky VR isn’t a separate VR game. Instead, it’s an updated version of the game that lets you play the whole thing in virtual reality.
It’s one of the biggest open worlds ever used in a game, so there’s a lot to see and do. You can invite up to 31 of your friends and yourself to explore the galaxies.
You can’t get tired of exploring the world that is made by putting No Man’s Sky in VR, because it’s so big.
Another thing you can do is trade goods, build bases, and hunt for bounties in an open world.
Zenith: The Last City
For people who want to play an MMO in VR, Zenith: The Last City looks like a great game.
You should have a lot of fun with this game because it lets you fight, make things, and explore a world that looks very detailed and full of fun things to do.
Zenith also has a social side because you can meet new people and chat with friends while playing. This can be useful if you’re working with a team or just want to have a chat.
Payday 2 VR
Payday 2 VR is a free add-on for the base game that makes robbing fake banks a lot more fun.
With up to three friends, you can form a “heist crew.” You can then steal all kinds of valuable things, depending on which mission you choose to play. Make sure you don’t run out of places to rob.
The fights are a lot of fun, but they’re also a lot of work. There are almost always waves of police until you make your daring escape. VR also makes you feel like you’re drilling a hole in a vault and making a big score.
