Play “local VR Multiplayer” with 2 Headsets on a single PC

Something not ViKubb-related, but I thought it might be interesting for some. As a Developer, I’m in the lucky position to own a Rift as well as a Vive. Well, today a friend came over and we figured it’s actually possible to use 2 headsets on a single PC (which is not very strong, using a GTX 970). See for yourself how we’re kicking ass in Rec Room – super fun!

It’s actually quite easy to setup, you’ll need:

  • A Rift and a Vive
  • SteamVR and Oculus Home Installed
  • Enough Space
  • A game that is not too demanding and is available on Oculus Home and Steam (e.g. Rec Room)

All you need to do is plug in both headsets and start the game on Oculus Home and Steam.  Everything should just work out of the box, now additional setup needed. Even sound works fine. The VR Madness can begin!
