New to VR - Question on playing VR games with people who don't have VR


Recommended Posts

Hi  - it depends on the game.


It's possible to play a non-VR game in VR, using either the Steam Desktop Theatre mode or another app. Those apps 'adapt' those games for VR use, essentially using the VR headset as a monitor. In those cases, someone in VR could play with others who aren't in VR, through the multiplayer component.


There are some VR games which 'mix' VR and non-VR gameplay. For example the game Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes puts the VR player in front of a bomb (!) and the other players (outside of VR) have to work with them to defuse it.


Those are pretty much your options in terms of mixing VR and non-VR.
