Single-player missions can be engrossing experiences on their own in VR, but the experience is incomparable to that of multiplayer missions! Though VR’s overall player base across all the three major headset is still a small community, there’s nothing like playing with similar minded die-hard fans! Here are the top 5 cross platform, multiplayer VR games we recommend for all Oculus rift, PSVR and HTC Vive owners –
1. EVE: Valkyrie (Rift, Vive, PSVR)
Eve Valkyrie (2016) transports players directly into the twisty-turny space battles popularized by science fiction series like Star Wars. Since it’s official release for HTC Vivie in 2016, it has been receiving constant updates and fleshed up in the months that followed with the addition of Carrier Assault, Wormholes, and Ground Rush.
2. Raw Data (Rift, Vive)
Raw Data is a first-person, cross-compatible combat game which is out for HTC Vive and Oculus Touch right now. Raw Data gives players an wide range of abilities, making them feel like they’re in real danger. Support for PSVR will be launched in September 2017.
3. Star Trek: Bridge Crew (Rift, Vive, PSVR)
With its 4-player interface, you can go lose an entire afternoon/ evening going through Star Trek: Bridge Crew’s campaign missions in the company of VR console owners from around the world!. Created by Ubisoft’s Red Storm Entertainment, Star Trek: Bridge Crew is hottest buzz in town!
4. Rec Room (Rift, Vive)
Anti Gravity’s Rec Room is a great way to experience simple games like paintball or dodge ball – and it’s free! The games come with Quests which let players battle with medieval weaponry against monsters through a cartoony version of the Middle Ages. The interface also allows players to chat with people from all over the world.
5. Arizona Sunshine (Rift, Vive – PSVR separate)
Arizona Sunshine is a first-person zombie shooter game which allows players to play in a two-player co-op, or up to 4 players in horde mode. Multiplayer is easiest when you’re dealing with the Steam version of the game, as VOIP isn’t available between different versions. But you can link up with your buddies by using a third party VOIP app like Mumble or Team Speak.
