Meta, the company formerly known as Facebook, is venturing into the realm of game subscriptions. CEO Mark Zuckerberg recently unveiled Meta Quest+, a subscription plan that grants users access to the “top titles on the platform.” Priced at $8 per month or $60 per year, the subscription is now available for both Quest 2 and Quest Pro. When Quest 3 launches later this year, Meta Quest+ will also be extended to that headset. Excitingly, early adopters who sign up for Meta Quest+ before the end of July can enjoy their first month for just $1.
With Meta Quest+, subscribers receive two carefully selected virtual reality (VR) titles on the first day of each month. Kicking things off are the immensely popular first-person shooter Pistol Whip and the nostalgic experience Pixel Ripped 1995. For August, subscribers can look forward to Walkabout Mini Golf and Mothergunship: Forge. Similar to services like PlayStation Plus Essential, as long as you maintain your membership, you’ll retain access to these games. Even if you decide to cancel Meta Quest+ and later rejoin, you’ll regain access to the games you had during your original membership period.
Meta has been actively embracing subscription models, evident through the introduction of Meta Verified this year. Meta Verified offers a verification service for both Facebook and Instagram, providing users with a checkmark and additional protection against impersonation, as well as direct access to customer support.
It’s worth noting that Meta Quest+ is not the only subscription service available for VR headsets. HTC has been offering Viveport Infinity since 2019, which provides access to hundreds of VR games, apps, and videos.
