Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg just announced Quest Plus, the company’s new “virtual reality subscription” that gives users access to “the best titles on the platform,” he said. “With a combination of VR’s biggest hits, hidden gems, and back-catalog classics, this is the most affordable way to grow your library with killer content,” Meta wrote in a blog post about the subscription.
A video from Meta notes that Quest Plus subscribers will get “two titles every month,” which should feel like a familiar perk if you pay for services like PlayStation Plus that also give free titles to subscribers. According to the blog post, July’s titles are Pistol Whip and Pixel Ripped 1995, and in August, you’ll be able to claim Walkabout Mini Golf and MOTHERGUNSHIP: FORGE.
The new, claimable games will show up on the first of every month. However, like PlayStation Plus, you’ll only have access to those games that you claim as long as you’re subscribed to the service. We’ve asked Meta if it can share a full list of titles available on the service.
The Quest Plus subscription, which you can sign up for right now, will cost $7.99 per month or $59.99 per year. If you sign up for the monthly subscription before July 31st, you’ll pay just $1 for your first month.
Quest Plus be available for the Meta Quest 2 and Quest Pro, Zuckerberg said. When the Quest 3 launches, you’ll be able to use the subscription on that headset, too, so I imagine Meta will be pushing the new subscription heavily when that device is available sometime this fall.
