Ready Player One: OASIS beta-Vive Studios

Released Mar 2018 4.0★
** The OASIS is expanding! Get the latest addition to Ready Player One: OASIS beta with the Elite Gunter Pack DLC! More levels; more bosses; more challenges. There’s more to do in the OASIS.

The OASIS beta is inspired by the immersive virtual universe the OASIS from the film Ready Player One, which is set in the year 2045. In the Oasis beta’s ever-expanding universe, players are able to explore, compete in, and launch multiple VR experiences using their own custom avatars. Global leaderboards track the performance of all players as they earn points (coins) throughout the following experiences: Rise of the Gunters, Battle for the OASIS, Gauntlet and Smash.

• Gauntlet – Navigate through a seemingly endless dungeon while the undead seek to destroy you. Collecting gold will improve your score and eating food will restore your health, but only your bow skills will ensure that you make it out alive. (Developed by Directive Games)

• Battle for the OASIS – Help to save the OASIS by defeating waves of IOI Sixers. Advance through the trenches of Planet Doom towards the snowy planes that surround Anorak’s Castle. With an arsenal of potent firepower, you must stop the Sixers from controlling the fate of the OASIS. (Developed by Steel Wool Studios)

• Rise of the Gunters – Fight against a nearly invincible army of highly trained IOI Sixers alone OR with up to two of your friends! Proceed with caution as you defeat Sixers, collect their coins, find power ups and survive a merciless onslaught of hyper-explosive kinetic action for as long as you can survive. The OASIS is yours. Take it back from IOI by yourself or with up to two fellow Gunters! (Developed by Drifter Entertainment Inc.)

• Smash – Enhance your hand and eye coordination in this nod to James Halliday’s favorite `80’s arcade games. (Developed by 2 Bears Studio)

• Fracture – Heighten your spatial awareness and reflexes in this throwback to` 80’s brick smasher games reimagined in VR. (Developed by 2 Bears Studio)

Explore the OASIS today and find something bigger than yourself.

This game amazed me to death. The intro into the OASIS, the menu to access games, and just the games themself. The developers must’ve put so much effort to make the dream of our very own OASIS come true, and I support that. Also it’s free! But when will multiplayer come into play?

also das Spiel ist noch ein bischen zu reif, aber für ein paar stunden reicht aus.
ich hoffe Vive wird OASIS weiterentwickeln denn es hat viel Potenzial 😉

This is only beta version of this game, but idea and game play feeling is very very big!
I recommend and hold my thumbs to the publisher! Wow

Right now, this game is a single player arcade with a few games.

When there are more worlds and more hub area’s (with other actual players like vrchat) this game will become the best!

I hope they make it free and use micro tranactions instead of paying like a full 60 dollars/euro’s, and if they make it free the micro transactions shouldn’t be overpowerd or needed for more experiences/worlds (that’s what dlc’s are for).
Instead they should be used for skins and items (or an in-game currency that’s also available by playing the game normaly).

It’s also nice to see that different developers are making the games, I wouldn’t be surprised if this game will become a platform for vr game devolopers.

I hope this game will become great!

Ein paar Probleme mit der UR4 Engine im Verbund mit der VIVE Pro aber ansonsten ist das sehr vielversprechend. Da bleibt zu hoffen das es wirklich weiter geht denn das Potenzial hat die Idee auf jeden Fall.

Sep 30, 2018
Está muy bien. Tiene varios juegos incluidos bastante buenos todos. La idea tiene mucho potencial. Vale la pena

Jul 21, 2018
Pour l’instant quelques jeu pour le moins deja super interressant pour une BETA! Je le conseil a tout les nouveaux testeurs de VR.
Vivement la version officiel <3

May 08, 2018
New to VR-games so I don’t have much to compare with but this blew my mind. Not going back to on screen gaming…ever!

May 06, 2018
Edit……..Game loads then says Connection to server was lost. Need to set your PC clock to automatic. Then the game works great!!! Long story to find the info. Should be a disclaimer on system requirements!

May 06, 2018
Super fun. Gauntlet is amazingly addictive and this is only a beta so I’m sure if they finish the game there will be updates. I highly recommend putting non fighting rooms in the game as well just like the movie.

May 02, 2018
Absolut der Hammer!
Ich würde dieses Spiel nur noch mehr lieben, wenn ihr es hinbekommt eine richtige multiplayer lobby und natürlich das Rennen aus dem Film nachzuprogrammieren (bitte in Ultra grafik habe sehr starken Rechner).

This game is amazing. Im so excited for more content. As it stands, this isn’t anything like the actual Oasis, but god damn does that not matter with how awesome the 3 gamemodes are already. Can’t wait to try the latest planet “Smash”. and I can’t want for the rest of the content Directive Games has planned. 11/10 masterpiece.

Apr 14, 2018
This was simply amazing ! First time I tired it with my new VIVE PRO – the upgrade was fantastic and so clear and so real! This is going to be a SUPER game when fully done – it’s so alive! Time to go see the movie now!! Wow … simply, a must get .. wow !!

***Reasonable Reviews for Reasonable Readers***
An immersive, texture rich environment with various gaming modes. Start in quarters-portal to the game of your choosing.
Pros: Stationary location modes to open environments to move around in include various combat arenas. A running leader board for all those in the Oasis. Controls are easy to utilize. Are you Ready Player?! You should be, if you have VR, join the Oasis.
Cons: Mostly all combat related environments, could use some neutral/multi-player modes that are more social zones and greater variety of game types. If the stargates (portals) continue to grow, it will enhance this program greatly. Also recommend adding to Steam.
Future Potential: On this one-endless. The only limitation is the creativity of the developers and willingness to pass it along to both keep it going and expanding in scope and content.
Content: Teen or Adult

Apr 13, 2018
Program was a lot of fun: still in early development but clearly lots of room for expansion. Curious to see what opens up when the Social element opens up. So far my favorite of the three available universes was the Gauntlet.

Apr 08, 2018
Keep up the good work! I can see this becoming very popular once it has been fully released!

Mar 31, 2018
Its an great game in its current state, and everything is great for free. I suggust adding a racing feature and other aspects from the movie (Btw the movie was AMAZING, go watch it if you haven’t already.) another thing I would like is a fully customizable avatar, which you can purchase parts with coins that you gain by slaying AI Sixers in Battle for the Oasis. I also saw a lot of comments saying that they unfortunately cannot play, however I can play just fine on my Vive, so it may be a compatibility issue. PLUS for the people who say their samsung oddesy isn’t working, this is a the vive app. So it might be maybe its trying to send vive-quality graphics to a headset that can’t handle it. VR is an amazing field that is expaning very fast. SOO many run-on sentences and fragments in this review. Good thing my ILA teacher will never see this…

Mar 30, 2018
It’s fun, very, and it’s free so can’t complain there. I really hope this eventually gets to the point of replicating the full Oasis at some point, and I know this is a beta so it won’t be that advanced yet, but if they ever start moving that way, I’d gladly pay for a full Oasis replica from the movie.

Hats off to the developer’s, these games are very well done. Normally when you see free game’s they are either bad or ok, but these are really good, I especially like rise of the gunters, if gauntlet was multiplayer coop and locomotion, it would rank at the top of my play list….
Great job!!!

Please add a module of an 80s style arcade with customizable cabinets, where users would supply their own ROMs and MAME engine for the cabinets to actually work (to avoid copyright issues). Take it a step further and allow multiplayer into your arcade space. Would be SO in keeping with the spirit of the book.

Aug 26, 2019
5 stars for “Gauntlet”. Smash & Fracture were ok, throwback to pong and breakout. Battle for the Oasis was also OK. Rise of the Gunters doesn’t even work for me. But Gauntlet!!!! AWESOME!!!! Totaly worth downloading this FREE game, just to play that! It’s also a throwback title, to the old arcade game Gauntlet. Unfortunatley it’s only a 1 player game, as it would be awesome to team up with others like in the original arcade game, but still worth the download just to try this one. If I can find out if the $20 “upgrade” version adds multiplayer to Gauntlet, I’ll buy it just for that.

Sehr coole Sache. Ich schliese mich meinen Vorgängern an. Das die Oasis sollte weiter entwikelt werden. Bitte nicht stehen bleiben. Wie wäre es sonst auch mit Shops in der Oasis wie ein VR Warenhaus, damit sich die weitere entwicklung selbst finanziert. (Softwareshop, Hardwereshop, Lieferdienste bei denen man rein geht um auf die Speisekarte zu schauen und ggf. was bestellt. Sehr viel potenzial. Und in den Games koop oder andere Gamemodies. Halt so wie im Film. Das wäre MEGA…. !!!

La beta (malgré quelques bugs graphiques mais cela reste une beta) est assez interressante pour nous montrer les possibilités de ce jeu. Les differents modes, qui peuvent être ajoutés par la suite grace à la taille de la carte principale, en font un jeu qui pourra être évolutif sans restrictions. A esperer un mode qui nous permettra de faire evoluer notre avatar comme dans le film et des mini jeux qui ne seront pas simplement repiqués à l’identique d’autres jeux déjà disponibles sur VR. (svp mettez nous la partie où l’on se retrouve dans un célèbre film d’horreur ! 😀 )
A voir l’évolution de ce jeu, mais je pense qu’il nous montrera les possibilités de la VR.

It’s besically a compilation of small games, some related to the universe, others completely different. Some of them are fun for a short time (very short life expectancy before finishing them) and are quite well made.
Since it’s free, it’s quite good for these small games but don’t expect anything too crazy. Maybe they will make something real out of this title however it looks more like a pre-alpha currently.

Jul 14, 2018
Really cool concept. Who doesn’t want to plug in to the Oasis after reading the book or seeing the movie. It has lots of potential… my daugher loves it. I can’t wait for addtl content.

May 19, 2018
Amazing and a lot of fun. Needs a social interaction space though.
The ability to customize your avatar/surroundings is what makes something like the OASIS so crazy interesting.

May 10, 2018
Played with Vive Pro setup. Very immersive and intense. Ran smooth. Right now there are 5 games, looks like there will be a lot more coming. Easily in the top 5 VR games out. I changed to 4 star because games are Beta and not finished. Much of the hinted at game play, such as levels and multi-play are yet to be completed.

Apr 23, 2018
Great experience. I love the idea of building OASIS and it becomes bigger and bigger. Im very impressed that no motion sickness occours in such a “fast” thing like ROTG, so well done.
Can´t wait for the multiplayer in Smash.
So please keep up the good work for a huge OASIS universe 🙂

Apr 06, 2018
Fantastic start with a lot of potential! The games are fun! Keep it going!
Maybe you could add in smooth locomotion in addition to teleport. The only thing that bothers me is the HUD takes up a lot of screen space.

Apr 05, 2018
A lot of potential, especially for a free experience. I would like smooth locomotion in all games, and the option to make the huge, annoying HUD disappear. I really enjoyed the dungeon crawler, and am excited to play ROTG more.

With more movement options, and unobtrusive HUD options, this game hub could really take off when the social area is available.

Apr 03, 2018
Actually rpretty fun. My main complaint is when moving my headset horizontally everything seems to slant instead of staying stationary. Idk if that is intentional but it makes me dizzy. I see a lot of potential in this.

Had a few runs and it feels amazing. It is a lot of fun and you fully immerse into the virtual world.
Please add the option to change the langauge. While my system is set to german, I do play all games in english.

Mar 31, 2018
Really surprised with what you get for free here. For basically being wave shooters, the games are super fun and love how they tie in with the movie feel. Wish there were better graphics options though, but still a really cool experience. Really hope they keep expanding this.

Mar 28, 2018
I wanted to post some screenshots from the experience, but have searched all over and can not find out where they are going! The Gauntlet game is great. Would love to see the OASIS experience grow more than collection of mini games, unless of course VR recreations of 1980s games!

Mar 26, 2018
Very good game for the prize, free. Planet doom, is doom because is unplayable on my GTX1060. The rest looks good and pretty fun.

Nov 11, 2019
Bon concept, encore quelques beugs, le mod de jeu avec déplacement
fluide et les deux armes est excellent et merite l’investissement;
a condition que les dev ne se barrent pas avec l’argent récolté
au lieux d’investir dans leur jeux…

Meme problème que dans le film ^^

Games were decent, but this does not have much to do with Ready Player One. If you were thinking this was going to be like the Oasis, being able to create an avatar in an open world environment, playing games maybe with friends you will be highly disappointed. The developers basically grabbed a couple of games and slapped them together and added a couple of references to the Ready Player One. If that’s what you’re looking for try Altspace, VRChat, Second Life.

Apr 18, 2018
Feels a tad clunky. Movement is inconsistent between the worlds. The whole point of the Oasis, IMHO, is that it’s a common “World”. When you enter different worlds and they act, feel, and you move, totally differently, what’s the difference between that and say Steam VR?

Things didn’t seem quite as ‘crisp’ as the Lab either; hard to put that into words.

I also couldn’t figure out a way to exit once inside my ‘apartment’.

Never saw anyone else – I agree about the multi-player aspect.

This game has a lot of potential, especially given the IP, but for now, I’ll go back to Fallout VR 🙂

The game works and loads properly, but a few seconds after it loads there is a red bar that says something about it not being able to connect to the servers then restarting the game. If the developers could fix this I would be very grateful. I would love to actually play this game!

Apr 05, 2018
I am having an issue with the video being distorted as well jist like Daydo_78 amd im on a WMR headset too. Its the Acer HMD but looks all screwy too. Dispite that the game is fun and the ROTG game mode is incredibly fun. I hope the support for WMR is improved. Nice work!

Mar 31, 2018
Still very unfinished. Music doesn’t load with each area. All three games are not available currently(3/30/18). Bow in Gauntlet is less consistent than the one in The Lab and motion is poorly executed. Still going to watch the movie, maybe it will justify some of what I just played. There are better F2P VR games out there.

Mar 24, 2018
About to download and play…super super …

super excited!!!

Apr 21, 2018
Great, new update. Bad news: Still can’t connect with my beast of a computer…
Seems like an awesome experience, but I keep getting disconnected after passing the title screen. I get in, get disconnected instantly, get back to the title screen and repeat. What’s weird is that this happens only with my best computer that has no problems at all with other online only games. My laptop can connect, but is WAY too slow to run the game. I really want to give it a good review, but I can’t since I’m not even able to PLAY it. Please fix that soon, I cannot wait to play it!
