In some ways, playing VR can feel like an isolated experience. Unlike traditional games, you can’t sit on the couch with friends or loved ones and immerse yourself in the story together. You are placed in your own room and asked to play the game yourself. However, several developers are working hard to provide compelling multiplayer content on VR platforms. Given that VR is still a bit nascent in the video game space, there aren’t many great options. However, we’ve put together some of the best below that should give you a great idea of what the space has to offer.
PokerStars VR is a unique way to immerse your fingers in the multiplayer VR space. It’s refreshingly simple and easy to use. Basically, you just play poker with your friends, except for virtual reality. In addition, the ability to throw chips without fear of drinking a drink is a big bonus.
This zombie shooter boasts a robust campaign and a horde-based wave mode. Both modes also support multiplayer, so you can jump in with a friend. It’s a little older game, but it’s still a great way to laugh and shoot zombies with a friend.
Spaceteam VR (and to a lesser extent Star Trek: Bridge Crew) will allow you to fulfill your imagination about operating a spaceship, complemented by constant bickering of the crew. You need to work together to pass the information on to the right person so that they can handle different situations while managing your own problems. It’s a hectic game that will test your patience, but in VR you would hardly try to find a more unforgettable cooperation.
Real fishing in the CoR
Load reduction is Real VR Fishing. Like PokerStars, this is a simple game that allows you to relax with up to four friends. If you need an excuse to meet some friends and chat over a light game, take a look at this.
This competitive VR title is the perfect use case for a medium. Echo VR simply doesn’t work in traditional video games, making it one of the best options for gamers looking to see what VR has to offer. You play with a team on the battlefield with zero gravity and try to shoot the disc to the target. And the best part is that it’s free on Oculus Quest.
Demeo is perhaps the best multiplayer experience VR has to offer, especially if you like table RPGs. This game almost perfectly recreates the experience of sitting at a table with friends to immerse yourself in a new prison. Resolution Studios allows up to four players to work together to download each map, and the team is constantly updating the game with new content. If you haven’t tried it yet, it’s definitely worth a look.
