A Group Of VR Enthusiasts Have Ported Star Wars Jedi Knight For Meta Quest 2

Team Beef has also ported other games like Doom 3 and Quack 3 for Meta Quest and Quest 2.

VR gaming has been making inroads into the mainstream for half a decade now. Meta Platforms, formerly known as Facebook, have been at the forefront with their Oculus/Meta Quest VR headsets. Sony is also striving to gain its share with PlayStation VR.

The biggest challenge faced by Meta Quest, and VR gaming in general, is game compatibility. Most of the games don’t support its versatile and fluid gameplay mechanics.

Although there have been many exclusive games released for the Meta Quest and Quest 2. Popular games, like Resident Evil 4, have also been ported to the platform.


MAJOR TAKEAWAYS

  • Team Beef has posted a demo game footage of Star Wars: Jedi Knight: Jedi Outcast Meta Quest 2 port on YouTube.
  • They have been working independently on porting popular titles for Meta Quest and Quest 2.
  • The game’s early access is available to their patron but will be released to the public upon completion.
  • All their releases are free.

But to attract more avid and OG gamers, older games are needed on the platform. That’s exactly what a group of independent programmers is doing. A group, going by the name of Team Beef, has ported several titles to Meta Quest and Quest 2 over a few years.

They have ported Doom 3, Return to Castle Wolfenstein, Half-Life, and Quake 3. Recently they released an early-access version of Wrath: Aeon of Ruin for their “mid-tier and up patrons.

Now they have posted early footage of Star Wars: Jedi Knight: Jedi Outcast VR on YouTube. It supposedly took them 3 weeks to port the game to Quest 2. The gameplay video was raw and only showed glimpses of the gameplay. But the game came off as running smoothly.

They have also been working on the first game of the series, Star Wars: Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy. Early access versions of both games are available to their patrons for now but Team Beef plans to release them to the public upon completion. And just like their other releases, these will be free as well.

It’s quite fascinating to see a group of VR enthusiasts trying to get more people into the VR fold and make it a better experience for those already in it. But it won’t do much unless Meta itself gets more involved in it.

Should Meta get more proactive and have other game classics ported for their platform? Discuss in the comments below. On a side note though, the Meta Quest Pro’s first images leaked online in relatively recent times.
