Rec Room Arrives For Free On Xbox, Complete With Themed Room

The popular VR game Rec Room has made the leap to Xbox consoles, with its very own Xbox themed room.

The surprise release allows players to virtually hang out in a multitude of player created rooms, and with cross-play support, no friend will be left behind. It’s free to download, so there’s not much to really lose and with the current global situation meaning friends and family haven’t been able to socialise, it’s a wonderful bit of escapism.

There’s also a special WelcomeXbox room, themed with Master Chief artwork, Minecraft dioramas and more. Anyone who visits the room before December 17 will receive a free Space Soldier helmet - modelled after Master Chief - as well as a free round of bubbly for anyone who uses a friend code to invite a buddy. How sweet!

With the holiday period approaching and many people desperate to spend time with loved ones and friends, this could honestly be the next best thing, arriving at the perfect time.
