Each vehicle will support dual-wielding objects while driving and has fully optimized controls across all platforms, including a clean intuitive feel on smartphones and touch devices.
Coming alongside the driving feature is a new game within Rec Room called Rec Rally, where up to six cars can compete in online multiplayer off-road racing. The new feature and game will support cross-platform play and be available to all players across Android, iOS, Oculus Quest, Oculus Quest 2, other compatible VR headsets, PC via Steam, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S.
The driving update for Rec Room, one of the best games on Oculus Quest 2, is expected to launch later this month, which means sometime next week since September is almost over.
Rec Room is a free-to-play game where players can chat, hang out, explore player-created rooms, and play various minigames with friends. The game supports cross-platform play and is available on Oculus Quest, other VR headsets, PC via Steam, Android, iOS, PlayStation, and Xbox consoles.
