Early Access Game

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

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.”

UPDATE IS LIVE - The "Account Management is Sexy" edition

Today we have upgraded Account Management:

  • You can now link multiple Steam or Oculus accounts to your Rec Room account.
  • You can also change the Steam or Oculus account linked to your Rec Room account.
  • Example 1: Let's say you have a Steam account "CoolGirlSteam" and an Oculus account "CoolGirlOculus". You can now share one Rec Room Member account between them, so you can login on either device and be the same Rec Room player!
  • NOTE: You can only be logged in with one linked account at a time.
  • Example 2: Let's say you started playing on Steam profile "CoolGirl01" and made it to level 10 as a Rec Room Member. For whatever reason, you now want to use a different Steam profile "CoolGirl02". Start Rec Room as CoolGirl02, and you'll get a new Rec Room Guest account. Use the kiosk to sign up as normal, and use the same email address as you did for CoolGirl01. After you provide your Rec Room password, you'll be prompted to merge the guest account into your existing Level 10 Member Rec Room account. Any new avatar items and friends will be imported from the guest account.
  • IMPORTANT! When you do this, you should immediately quit and restart Rec Room so that you're logged in with the right Member account. Otherwise any more progress you make on the Guest account will be lost. We hope to make this smoother/more automatic in the future.
  • You can unlink accounts by visiting your profile page:
https://recroom.azurewebsites.net/Manage
  • NOTE: You must have at least one linked account...
Also:
  • Fixed some bugs that you reported! Thanks!

UPDATE IS LIVE - The "Look Who's Talking" edition

  • New visual effect that makes it much easier to see who is talking!

  • New Report feature. If a player is violating the Code of Conduct, please report that player and specify the reason why. This will also initiate a vote kick, and ghost (ignore) that player. To initiate a report, use your watch menu. Note that we will continue to improve this UI over time. We're getting the backend in place first.

  • Internal tweaks to how the vote kick system works
  • New splash screen that makes it clearer that kids under 13 are not allowed in Rec Room

  • You can now see the actual time on your watch!!!
  • Don't forget that as a Rec Room member you can create "Invite Only" rooms! With this feature, you can play with only your invited friends if you prefer. Tutorial video for this coming soon!

As always, thanks for playing Rec Room. We welcome all feedback positive and negative, so keep it coming! We have lots of fun stuff in the works for you, so we'll see you in the Locker Room and please be excellent to each other =]
