Early Access Game

Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

Note: This Early Access game is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you should wait to see if the game progresses further in development. Learn more

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We believe that it's best to learn by doing. Room scale VR and active gaming are very new, so we want to work together with players to figure out what works best, what people really want to play, and generally how this genre should evolve.

We hope players will help us make a really cool community of active game enthusiasts, so that as more and more people get into VR there's a vibrant and fun multiplayer community waiting for them!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We estimate that around two months of development and tweaking in Early Access will get us ready for general launch.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version will be a continuation of the Early Access Version. We plan to add new activities, toys, and customization options. We plan to keep working on the game, adding and tweaking in response to player feedback, as long as there is an engaged player base!

PLEASE NOTE: Rec Room has avatar customization. It is likely we will need to reset everyone's stored avatars at least once before we release! So... don't marry your customizations just yet.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Rec Room currently comprises a shared locker room (which functions as a multiplayer lobby where players can meet up and socialize), a changing room with avatar customization options, and three activities (Paddle Ball, Disc Golf, and Dodgeball).”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Early Access will be free. We plan to add at least one (entirely optional) feature to test out the payment pipeline.

After launch, we plan to add some premium features over time that cost money (examples might be scheduled tournaments, or special avatar items). But our current plan is to always have a free tier that lets you get into the game and have a great experience. That could change depending on how the VR market develops, but that's our current thinking.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We will be active in the forums (both here on Steam and on Reddit) to listen to feedback from players.

We will conduct scheduled betas (e.g., to learn if people are having trouble connecting) to test specific features. E.g., before a new activity is added, we will beta test it first and collect feedback.

In some cases we may make a work-in-progress activity available to players, clearly marked as "WIP" so the reduced quality won't be unexpected.

We will post concepts, GIFs, videos, etc., of work-in-progress features so we can get feedback on whether people like the direction.

We have some (anonymous) telemetry and analytics in the game so we can do things like track session length, activity preference, etc. We want to be able to ask questions like "do people play activity #1 or activity #2 longer?"

Lastly, we have some in-game feedback features - e.g., a menu that allows users to rate the match they just played. This should make it as easy as possible for players to give us feedback.”
