Available in VR

Playne has a free DLC that brings full VR functionality to Playne for all three game modes.

Few important points about VR:

  • VIVE Cosmos is not officially supported.
  • Quest works in tethered mode but it's not officially supported.
  • You need to download the free DLC to enable VR mode.
  • If you are not getting an option to run Playne in VR after installing the DLC, you need to restart your computer or try running it directly through Steam VR.
