Ready Player One: OASIS beta launched for free this summer on HTC Vive in tandem with Steven Spielberg’s film Ready Player One (2018). Boasting a collection of RPO-themed VR games and places to explore, the collection is getting all new levels, environments, and enemies in the Elite Gunter Edition paid DLC.
The updated game is now available for Viveport Subscription members, either counted as one of the free monthly titles, or costing $20; it’s available on Viveport for regular customers too as the Elite Gunter DLC pack. You can check out the game’s Viveport store page here.
Important to note: Currently the Ready Player One OASIS beta available through Viveport only officially supports the HTC Vive, although the company says a future update will add Oculus Rift compatibility. The original free version available on Steam supports Vive, Rift, and Windows VR headsets, so we imagine the updated game will add support for other headsets in due time.
