Social Multiplayer Rec Room Confirmed for PlayStation 2017 Launch

Developer Against Gravity has now opened applications for beta testers.

One of the most popular social experiences on Oculus Rift and HTC Vive is Against Gravity’s virtual reality (VR) social club Rec Room, allowing players to hangout, chat and play a multitude of videogames together. Now the studio has confirmed a PlayStation VR version is in the works, due for release by the end of the year.

Making the announcement via Reddit, Against Gravity is looking for PlayStation VR owners to become beta testers prior to launch, with applications now open for anyone who’d like to test run the title so long as they live in North or South America. Other stipulations include one application per PlayStation VR headset and that you won’t need PlayStation Plus to participate – if you get chosen.

Just like the PC version, Rec Room for PlayStation VR will support cross-platform gameplay at launch, so players will be able to compete against Oculus Rift and HTC Vive users – the function won’t be available for the beta. The studio also states that the console version won’t ‘have any ads, in app purchases, subscriptions, paid rooms, etc,’ being completely free.

Originally released on HTC Vive back in June 2016, Rec Room is still a Steam Early Access title seeing plenty of updates over the last year. Players can customise their appearance, team up to play multiplayer games like Paintball, 3D Charades, and Disc Golf, or head off on four player co-op adventures.

As further details are released on the PlayStation VR version, VRFocus will keep you updated.
