Rec Room Hosts the RecLympics

Popular social VR platform Rec Room is holding a major event over the next three weeks in August: the first-ever VR Olympics*!

According to a report in VRSout:

This weekend marks the start of the inaugural Reclympics, a VR competition hosted by popular social VR platform Rec Room. Over the next three weeks, competitors from around the globe will go head-to-head in a variety of custom-made VR games in hopes of returning home with a coveted gold medal.

The Reclympics will feature seven games in total:

  • Archery
  • Discus Throw
  • Dodgeball
  • Laser Tag
  • Paintball
  • Stunt Runner (a solo competition in which players parkour their way through a complex obstacle course)
  • Ultimate Frisbee

The entirety of the summer games will be broadcast live on YouTube during the scheduled event times. You will need to register for the events, and you have to have at least a Level 30 Rec Room account in order to participate. You can read all the details here. (The registration deadlines for Stunt Runner and Laser Tag have already passed, but you can still register for the other events.)

Thank you to Rainwolf for the heads-up!

*Hmmm, I wonder if the official Olympics knows about this, and what they think. The Olympics have always been very touchy about their intellectual property!
