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?

“VR is still 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, 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?

“No ETA”

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, features, 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!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Rec Room is fairly mature - there is a rich multiplayer ecosystem of games to play (like Paintball, Laser Tag, and co-operative "Quests"), an evolving set of tools for players to create their own multiplayer rooms, a token economy where you can buy items to customize your avatar, and a companion website (”

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 (here on Steam, and on Reddit and Discord) to listen to feedback from players. We also have a feedback site:

In some cases we make work-in-progress activities available to players, clearly marked as "time limited Alphas" so the reduced quality won't be unexpected.

We 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?"”

Rec Room UPDATE - the "Social Dorm Edition"

Before we dive into the first update of 2019, let's take a moment to appreciate what a fantastic 2018 Rec Room had! Check out our 2018 in Review post for details. It truly was an amazing year, and each and every one of you played a part in that - so thank you! We can't wait to see what 2019 has in store for Rec Room =]

Without further ado, let's dive into the update!

You can now customize and save your Dorm Room!
  • You can save the state of your Dorm Room by going to This Room > Save
  • This saves the location of all objects in the room (including maker pen objects)
  • Next time you go to your Dorm Room, the saved state will be restored
  • Use the button in the upper right hand corner of the login profile select screen to toggle "Safe Mode", to load the default dorm room without any of your saved customizations - useful if you accidentally save in a bad state and get stuck!
  • Note that Junior players cannot save their Dorm Rooms

And that's not all! You can now invite other players to your Dorm Room!
  • You can invite up to 3 other players to join you in your Dorm Room!
  • Players can request to join you in your Dorm (the Go To button will send an invite request)
  • Juniors, unregistered players, and players under moderation cannot be invited to a Dorm Room
  • You can instant kick everyone from your Dorm Room at any time via the “Evict All” button on the home screen of your Watch

Another big update - screens mode is now a first person play experience!
  • This is a work in progress, so feedback is welcome!
  • First person mode also means you can now manipulate objects (so you can play all your favorite escape rooms!)
  • Just pick an object up and carry it around - you can use controls to rotate/manipulate/etc
  • Note some objects specifically require you to press “Manipulate” first to do so (such as basketballs, drinking bottles, etc)

Next up, we’re excited to announce that rooms can now optionally allow Junior players to visit!
  • Junior access if OFF by default; creators can opt in by changing the setting (find it in This Room > General Setup)
  • This means that Juniors can now see and browse #community rooms in the watch
  • Please note that Juniors still cannot create, share or publish rooms, use the Maker Pen, or visit ^charades

There’s more... we heard you loud and clear (so, so loud =P) - we’d like to introduce the Auto Mic Muting feature!
  • Microphone spam above a certain level triggers a warning, causing other players to hear you at a reduced volume
  • If mic spam continues after the warning, you are force muted (other players can't hear you)
  • If the spam volume is reduced, the force mute will end
  • Note you can disable this feature in user created rooms, for all your sweet sweet DJ needs (find the setting in This Room > Setup > General Setup > Disable Auto Mic Muting)

This update also includes some (minor) updates to the Rec Center!
  • We added an information kiosk in the middle of the Rec Center, to better break up the larger space
  • We also added full Ping-Pong Tables, and another Basketball Hoop!
  • We also moved around the Merch Booth, Puzzles & Art, the Mirror, the Community Board and Dart Board
    We hope you enjoy these changes to our Rec Center!

Plus we've updated Grenade behavior in some activities - note we're reworking how Grenades work overall, so this is a work in progress and does not necessarily reflect what final functionality will be! Feedback welcome =]
  • In Laser Tag, Rec Royale and JumboTron Grenades do not have friendly fire (but can hit yourself)
  • In Paintball, Grenades act as they always have

But wait, there’s still more!
  • There is now a "Can Save Invention" permission, so room owners can allow Maker Pen use in their rooms (but prevent people from making inventions)
  • We added paging for outfit items in your dorm
  • You can now merge shapes into costumes! To do so, select a costume and some shapes and click Merge! The palette will let you select which piece of the costume it should get merged into
  • Cheer & 'Go to Room' buttons added to Rec Center projector room

Plus a bunch of bug fixes, including:
  • Made a few tweaks that should hopefully help with performance and PS4 crashing - note we will be making some larger changes to address these issues in the next update!
  • Daily challenge reward fixes
  • Fixed a bug causing all the Cyber Junk City videos to display as black screens
  • Grenade bug fixes across activities
  • Fixed a bug that allowed players who were out in Dodgeball to walk onto the court
  • Fixed Paintball sniper scopes not displaying correctly in Spillway
  • Fixed bug that prevented screens players from writing on drawing surfaces
  • Fixed bug where trigger zones in object mode sometimes output a player ID
  • Fixed a bug that would cause Objects to be off by some number of centimeters on multiplayer room restores
