‘Racket Fury: Table Tennis VR’ Now Supports Quest’s 120Hz Mode
Many VR enthusiasts are eagerly awaiting the Oculus’ v28 software update expected to usher in lots of cool new features for Oculus Quest 2. The wait is even more frustrating now that many VR developers are beginning to roll out support for the highly anticipated experimental 120Hz refresh mode. The latest VR studio to enter the fray is Pixel Edge Games with its Racket Fury: Table Tennis VR.
The other Oculus Quest 2 videogame that has so far confirmed 120Hz support is the puzzle VR title Cubism. The 120Hz refresh rate works fine in a slow and methodical game such as Cubism but Racket Fury: Table Tennis VR, with its quick mechanics, should provide players with the perfect showcase for a really smooth table tennis gameplay.
As we wait for the update, it will be some time before Racket Fury: Table Tennis VR can test out the feature. The v28 update is being rolled out gradually and it will take time before the 120Hz refresh rate is available in your Oculus Quest 2 headset. The 120Hz refresh rate is a Quest 2-only feature as the original Oculus Quest headset doesn’t have the processing power to handle this level of refresh rate. After the update has arrived, players will be able to enable the feature via the Oculus Experimental Features in the settings as well as in Racket Fury’s video option setting.
Racket Fury: Table Tennis VR arrived in 2019 as an original launch title for the Oculus Quest headset. It offers you both a single-player campaign and a multiplayer mode. Playing solo, you are up against 16 robotic opponents as you fight your way to the finale which enables you to compete against other opponents from across the world who have global rankings. It also has other features such as the ability to switch between the Arcade and Simulation physics based on how realistic you want the virtual reality table tennis to be. You also have a choice of various selectable arenas that you can play in.
This trend will no doubt continue as many other VR developers try to implement 120Hz support. However, not all titles will have this feature. This refresh rate exerts an extra workload on the Oculus Quest 2 headset and some of the performance-heavy videogames simply won’t handle this. However, in future VR title releases, the 120Hz refresh rate could come as standard.
