Can Roblox be played on Oculus Quest 2?

-

Although Roblox, the favourite kid-friendly game, can not be accessed in the oculus quest 2 in-house games.

You can still play Roblox on the Oculus Quest 2 by downloading Roblox on your PC through the virtual desktop and connecting the oculus link cable to your PC from the Oculus Quest 2 and if you do not have the link cable you can still use a 10 feet long high-quality third-party USB-C cable that can handle power and data or you can connect to your PC through the Oculus Air Link.

To connect wirelessly you must ensure the Oculus app and oculus quest 2 headset is updated to a suitable version. Then you can pair the oculus quest 2 to your P.C by opening the menu through your headset and clicking the settings gear icon to select the Experimental Features where you would click on the Air link button to pair with your PC from the Available PC’s list.

This way Roblox runs on your PC and visual results are sent to Quest 2 through the cable or the wireless connection but in this case, your PC has to be fast enough to support Virtual Reality technology.

 Your PC would be powerful enough if it runs on an Intel Core i5 or AMD Ryzen 5 processor or if it handles an Nvidia GTX 970 0r AMD 400 series graphics card. This specification is not exclusive to these but what is important is if your PC is powerful enough to help you unlock higher-end VR experiences.

 Minecraft is not available on the oculus quest 2 but you can still play Minecraft by connecting your PC to the oculus quest 2 through the oculus link cable or a 10 feet long high quality third party USB-C cable that  would be easy to set up and it can support power and data  

You can also remain tethered to your PC via the Oculus Air Link but your Oculus app and oculus quest 2 headset have to be updated to a suitable version.

Then you can pair the oculus quest 2 to your P.C by opening the menu through your headset and clicking the settings gear icon to select the Experimental Features where you would click on the Air link button to pair with your PC from the Available PC’s list.

Your PC has to be VR compatible and run on a much higher processor with full speed and handle better graphics cards.

This way Minecraft can run on your PC and visual results are sent to Quest 2 which is why your PC has to be fast enough to support Virtual Reality technology. So you can still play both the bedrock and java version of Minecraft on Oculus quest 2 through the Oculus Rift on the Oculus store.

Minecraft alternative games for Oculus Quest 2

 Vive craft is a good alternative clone of Minecraft. It is similar to Minecraft in the sense that you can create and build stuff just like the real thing but unlike Minecraft, it is not a survival game yet but it has the potential in the future. But it is really awesome although it can not be compared to the original Minecraft, it is still impressive as a workaround.

Can you play Fortnite on Oculus quest 2?

You can play Fortnite by connecting your PC via the Oculus Air Link but your Oculus app and oculus quest 2 headset have to be updated to a suitable version.

Then you can pair the Oculus quest 2 to your P.C by opening the menu through your headset and clicking the settings gear icon to select the Experimental Features where you would click on the Air link button to pair with your PC from the Available PC’s list or you can connect via the oculus link cable or a third-party USB-C cable and stream Fortnite on the Virtual  Desktop app.

However, there is a multiplayer battle-royale game called Population: One that can be played on the Oculus quest 2 that is very similar to Fortnite with exciting new challenges that makes it much more fun to play and you do not have to use any cable or go through any length to connect to play this game.

Conclusion

Although Roblox and Minecraft are not officially on the Quest 2, but the possibility of it formally joining the Quest 2 might be near in the future. For now, you can still connect your oculus quest 2 headsets through the oculus link cable that can be purchased separately for $79 on the oculus website or a cheaper USB-C cable like a $17 Anker powerline + cable but the caveat is the cable has to be very long for ease of use and it also has to be very high quality. If using a cable might be a chore, you can connect to your PC via the oculus Air link but you might face some hiccups along the way since it is still an early access feature.

Another method to play Roblox or Minecraft games on the Quest 2 is to play the alternative clone games that have been created by developers for community gamers and although it might not be 100 % accurate to the original version but overall you would still get the same sense and feel likened to playing Roblox or Minecraft games on the Oculus Quest 2.
