Simply download games and apps to the headset, place it on your head and go.
Of course, if you have a powerful PC, you can play amazing titles like Half-life: Alyx also with optional Oculus Link cable. And if you want to experience Mark Zuckerberg’s future metaverse, this is the VR headset for you.

It doesn’t have the immediacy of the Oculus Quest 2 and can’t run without a PC or motion-tracking base stations, but the room-scale experience is second to none with crisp visuals and high refresh rates to really get lost in a virtual world. Pair with Half-life: Alyx. Trust us.
