Quest 2 PC VR Game Prices (Rift Store & Steam)

In the previous sections of the article, I only discussed games that you can play with the Quest 2 used in standalone mode.

What you may or may not have known (depending on how far along you are on your VR journey) is that the Quest 2 can also function as a PC VR headset. In this case, it’s your PC that does all the hard work (rendering the actual game), while the Quest 2 takes care of tracking and acts as a display.

This also means that the games are different and they are installed on your PC rather than the headset. But what about the price?

The Quest 2 PC VR games are in the same price range as standalone games with most titles setting you back about $15 to $30. Simple (and older) games usually cost less while certain AAA titles (e.g Half-Life: Alyx, Boneworks, etc.) can be priced up to $50 and higher.
