Catch Fish With Friends In Real VR Fishing Update On Oculus Quest

You can go fishing with friends on Oculus Quest with the new “Together Edition” multiplayer update to Real VR Fishing.

A beta test for multiplayer with up to four total players together is now live in the fishing game which originally launched last year with impressive water effects and stunning environments. The update is expected to launch broadly in August as developer MIRAGESOFT finishes testing.

Check out the latest trailer here:

The update features:

  • Up to 4 players available in one room
  • Avatar customization
  • Voice chat with a push-to-talk option in the menu
  • Choose multiplayer server via region
  • Create or join in a room from “Multiplayer” Menu on the TV screen
  • Host will decide which location to visit for all the users in the same room.
  • See other players information (Name, Type of fish caught)
  • Add friends from the Multiplayer menu

I tried out the update with my daughter and I in a pair of Quests and it was a joy to transport from our couch to a lake together. It really is an incredible simulation of the real thing with such beautiful environments and none of the downsides of physically going fishing. Of course there’s still fun to be found in actual fishing, but the moment our lines crossed and we didn’t actually tangle anything was enough to find immense satisfaction in this escape. We were catching fish in no time and quickly competing for the biggest catch.

The “Together Edition” should exit beta on August 6 on Oculus Quest. A version of the game is set to launch on Steam later this year. The development team is considering cross-play between Steam and Quest players but, if they do add it to the Steam version, it’ll take some time for implementation.

New Japanese PlayStation VR Bundles to Include Camera Adaptor for PlayStation 5

Published

Sony Interactive Entertainment’s (SIE) next-gen console, the PlayStation 5 is due to launch in a month and while most details have been released including a recent teardown, one piece of information is still missing; how to get the PlayStation Camera Adapter. Unless you’re in Japan, with a couple of new bundles confirmed to include the device.

PlayStation 5

Over on the Japanese PlayStation Blog the site has announced two new PlayStation VR bundles which will go on sale from next Thursday, 29th October 2020. A ‘Variety Pack’ will offer the headset, PlayStation Camera, PlayStation Move controllers and four videogames (Astro Bot Rescue Mission, PlayStation VR Worlds, Everybody’s Golf VR and Ryan Marks Revenge Mission).

The other is an entry-level bundle with the headset, camera and PlayStation VR Worlds. Crucially, customers who buy either of these deals will be given the PlayStation Camera Adapter free at the time of purchase. Even if they don’t buy these particular bundles, customers buying a PlayStation VR after the 29th October will still be given the adapter free of charge.

However, SIE has yet to confirm how current owners either in Japan or the West go about applying for the free adapter. With the weeks quickly ticking away the chance of playing VR on the new hardware on launch day could be in doubt.

PlayStation VR third anniversary

Why all the fuss about the adapter? Well, it’s down to two reasons. Firstly, PlayStation 5 doesn’t have the correct port for the older camera and rather oddly, the new HD Camera doesn’t support PlayStation VR. So without said adapter, it’s impossible to switch your VR gaming to the new console. Luckily, when you have it most VR titles are supported by PlayStation 5, only two aren’t – Crytek’s Robinson: The Journey and DWVR by Mad Triangles.

When details regarding how to get the PlayStation Camera Adapter are released, VRFocus will let you know.
