Meta would like to make Tuesday nights into VR gaming nights
Meta has officially launched Quest Night, a weekly gaming night that focuses on all things Quest. The company encourages Quest players to get together online for good old-fashioned multiplayer gaming, starting next Tuesday and continuing every Tuesday thereafter.
The company wants you to log in with your friends and play your favorite apps and games throughout the week. Quest Night sounds like it’s just a way to encourage group VR gaming on Quest.
“Remember game nights? Friends all sit around a table as they eat snacks, excitedly scream at each other, and most importantly, play a few games together. It was a beautiful mess. And it’s about to get taken up a notch,” said the company in an official blog update.
Meta released a trailer to celebrate the announcement. It showcases a few VR party games, including Demeo and Walkabout Minigolf. Any of the mentioned games are great fun. Here’s a list of VR party games that we recommend to Quest members:
- After the Fall – If you’re a fan of co-op shooters like Left 4 Dead, you and your buddies will definitely want to check out After the Fall. This extra-gory VR co-op game has you and three other teammates battling hordes of undead creatures throughout post-apocalyptic Los Angeles.
- Echo Arena – An oldie but a classic, Echo Arena pits two teams against one another in a zero-g game of ultimate frisbee. The goal is simple, work together with your teammates to score points by tossing the neon disk into your opponent’s net. The best part is it’s free.
- Horizon Worlds – Meta’s social VR platform has only been in open beta a few months and already the company’s metaverse is chock full of incredible games and apps created by the players themselves. There are nightclubs, comedy venues, first-person shooter games, even talent contests, and a dating show; all for the low, low price of $0.00.
- Zenith: The Last City – Finally, a massively-multiplayer online game tailor-made for VR headsets. You can team up with friends and take on huge bosses, craft powerful weapons and items, cook food, and explore a magical world by flying, climbing, swimming, and ziplining.
