Onward On Oculus Quest Launch Day Livestream: PvP And Co-Op VR Shooter!




For today’s livestream we’re playing realistic military sim VR shooter, Onward on Oculus Quest! If you’re curious about how we livestream the way we do then look no further than this handy guide for general tips and this guide specific to our Oculus Quest setup.

Onward aims to be the ultimate VR FPS for those after an authentic-style military simulation. The PC version excels in this regard and even though the Quest version is downgraded, it’s still a blast. It also features cross-play with PC for all game modes!

Our Onward on Oculus Quest VR livestream is planned to start at about 10:30 AM PT and will last for around an hour or two, give or take, depending partially on how well-behaved my small toddler child will be while left alone. We’ll be hitting just our YouTube and I’ll be streaming from my Oculus Quest, which will be using a Chromecast Ultra wireless cast signal, plugged into a Capture Card, to get the footage to my PC while Jamie and Zeena join in via webcam to hang out and help out with chat.

You can watch the stream embedded via YouTube right here. Set a reminder if you’re reading this early!

You can see lots of our past archived streams over in our YouTube playlist or even all livestreams here on UploadVR and various other gameplay highlights. There’s lots of good stuff there so make sure and subscribe to us on YouTube to stay up-to-date on gameplay videos, video reviews, live talk shows, interviews, and more original content!

And please let us know which games or discussions you want us to livestream next! We have lots of VR games in the queue that we would love to show off more completely.

VR Escape Room Specialist ARVI Partners With HTC Vive to Expand Global Deployment




In the last couple of months, there’s been a concentrated effort to restart the virtual reality (VR) side of the location-based entertainment (LBE) industry. The latest comes from HTC Vive and ARVI VR, who have partnered up in an effort to bring the latter’s escape room experiences to a wider audience.

ARVI Mission Sigma

The collaboration will see the pair introduce VR escape rooms like Sanctum, Christmas, Mission Sigma and Cyberpunk to locations in China, India and Taiwan to begin with. Those locations will then be followed by Egypt, Hong-Kong, Indonesia, Macau, Malaysia, Philippines, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Singapore, Thailand, Turkey, UAE, Vietnam, and Kuwait at a later date.

Over the next three years, hundreds of VR arcade locations will receive ARVI VR’s content which is already used in HTC’s flagship VR park, Viveland. Kevin Williams, who covers LBE for VRFocus in The Virtual Arena has also learnt: “ARVI VR content currently targets the HTC Vive Pro platform and is expected to be converted to work on the successor hardware (the HTC Vive Cosmos).”

“Since 2019, HTC Vive has worked closely with ARVI VR to implement their popular escape room content for our customers at Viveland,” said Plutarch Lee, Associate Vice President, VR Enterprise Solutions at HTC Vive in a statement. “We’re excited to leverage their escape room content in even more arcades globally and look forward to adding more great multiplayer content later this year.”

ARVI Jungle Quest

“We’re thrilled to work with HTC Vive to bring our exciting and adventurous content to new audiences around the world,” said Michael Dementii, CEO of ARVI VR. “At present, we view this as a long-term and fruitful partnership with the possibility of broadening cooperation opportunities in the LBE industry.”

ARVI VR has been creating VR escape room games since 2016, partnering with numerous companies and deploying its tech across 250+ locations worldwide. Its latest title is Chernobyl which launches this month, where up to six players travel back in time to that fateful day.

As the LBE industry gets back on its feet and more content is announced, VRFocus will keep you updated.
