Much more than a collection of popular pub games, SportsBar VR gives players the ability to interact with the 3D world around them — and to get rowdy! All set within an interactive virtual sports bar, SportsBar VR enables up to six players to play games ranging from air hockey to pool to darts, hang out, chat, roam the bar, or even make up their own challenges — like throwing cue balls, smashing bottles and much more. Loosen up in the virtual bar without ever drinking a single drop of beer!

SportsBar VR Gameplay Features:

  • Tons to Do: Darts, pool, air hockey, skeeball and more. Just about every classic pub game is here… All in beautiful, realistic 3D VR.
  • Go on, Make a Mess! Had enough of being a good sport? Then enjoy throwing bottles, cue balls and sticks around nobody gets hurt and nobody has to clean up!
  • Hang with Friends: A fully immersive social setting enables you to simply hang out and chat
