Best Oculus Quest Multiplayer FPS Game: Play Pavlov VR for FREE! (OpenAlpha)


Do you want to play a real online first person
shooter on your Oculus Quest? I have some great news for you! Pavlov is under development for the Oculus
Quest, and you can try it for free right now during the early OpenAlpha testing. Pavlov will one day be a game you will need
to purchase from the Oculus Quest store of course, but for now its open free testing! In my opinion, Pavlov is one of the best military
first person shooters ever made for VR, and its quite amazing that its now its fully possible
to play it wirelessly on your Oculus Quest – without PC. In this short video, I will show you how the
latest Pavlov OpenAlpha version works on the Quest, and I will also guide you through how
to set it up totally for free! But before we start, don’t forget to subscribe
to my channel and leave a like on this video. A big thanks to all my Patreon supporters
and a special thanks to my official sponsors on Patreon, CMDR Dark Light, Art Armin and
VR Ambassador! All right, so whatever you see here in this
video, remember the Oculus Quest version of Pavlov is still in a very early development
stage, so you can expect problems, glitches, occasionally low performance or stutters and
even crashes. But still. The fact is that Pavlov is fully playable,
on the Oculus Quest as of right now. Offline and even online in multiplayer! The graphics on default are heavily downgraded
of course, compared to the PC version of Pavlov, with lower texture quality, low effects, lower
scaling or resolution and overall less detailed objects from what I can see. But you can actually change these settings
in game and make the graphics look pretty great, but at a cost of performance of course. On default, starting up the game for the first
time on your Quest, you will have the scaling set to a reasonable level making the game
quite sharp for being an Oculus Quest game. With these settings the game actually runs
pretty great. Have in mind I’m recording the gameplay
internally inside the Oculus Quest, so that makes the performance slightly lower. Playing without recording is much smoother. When I change the settings to medium, I started
to get some heavier re-projection. Or judder as you may call it. Its still playable but not optimal, especially
not for Pavlov which is quite a fast and competitive first person shooter game. So I would recommend you to play around with
the settings in Pavlov for a while, until you find a good balance between performance
and image quality. Still, I must say for an Oculus Quest game,
Pavlov looks pretty impressive and Im sure everything will be even better once the game
hits final version and comes to the Oculus Quest store. Next the sound. Well it works. Its sometimes laggy and gets delayed while
shooting, and sometimes it can glitch out completely, but that’s probably still in
development and will be fixed. You can also change the sound settings in
the game as well, increasing or decreasing the sound quality. Now how about the gameplay itself? Well, I gotta say its far from perfect yet,
but still fully playable. The Oculus Quest controller tracking does
a great job here. Picking up weapons, reloading, changing clips
or magazines works like a charm and even if I have not tested all the weapons at this
point, the weapon handling feels quite rigid. The aiming angles on some of the weapons feels
sometimes kind of un-natural or a bit off. It just doesn’t feel you are actually aiming
correctly with your hands, and the way you are holding some of the weapons might feel
weird. But remember it’s still an OpenAlpha version
of Pavlov for Oculus Quest is still in a very early stage, so these problems will for sure
be fixed soon with new updates. Another problem I found is when you are holding
a weapon with a two-hand grip, it seems like the hand tracking is only applied to your
main weapon hand, or the right hand in my case. When I try to move around my left hand while
holding the weapon, its just not responding to the movements. Most likely another thing that will be solved
very soon. In fact, I think this could be made to make
it more simple to aim with the weapons, especially for beginners, but personally I don’t like
it. So as I said before, you can play online and
offline. In the offline mode, you have 4 maps to choose
from as of now. The Bridge, Container Yard, Data Center and
the Sand map which is my favorite. You can of course change the difficulty of
the bots in offline mode and I would recommend you to start off with offline mode to get
hold of the controls, aiming general interaction. In the main menu you can practice shooting
and test all the weapons available of course. Some weapons feels more refined and polished
than others, especially the reloading mechanics. Using some of the weapons you cannot simply
pull out the clip with your hands. You need to press a button. Also the scopes are not yet working in all
the sniper weapons and rifles with a scope. Playing online in multiplayer works surprisingly
well actually. The ping is OK and I could easily play it
with a few other guys without any major lag. It all depends on your Wifi connection of
course, but when I’m using my 5 Ghz Wifi with Google Wifi mesh network, I had no problems
what so ever. So without going too much into the details,
Pavlov just works on the Quest, but remember its still in a very early stage, and you need
to have patience. You will find problems. Just keep that in mind. Its an early OpenAlpha(Beta) version. What more to say. You could actually experience some crashes
as well. But yeah, that’s going to be fixed sooner
or later… Any way, now you probably wonder how to get
it working. In fact its quite simple. Its easier than installing the other “unofficial”
apps I have shown you in my previous videos. The only thing you need to do first, is to
enable “Developer mode” . You do that through your Oculus application on your Smartphone. To enable the developer mode, you need to
first apply as a developer on this website. However, Its really simple to go around that,
and everyone can do that. I will leave you a link in the video description
to this website. Browse to the website on your PC and make
sure you are logged in into your Oculus account. Now set a random name for your organization,
click accept and you are basically done. Now you can enable the developer mode in your
Oculus smartphone application. Next connect your Oculus Quest to your PC
with the provided USB C cable. Wait until your Oculus Quest is recognized
on your PC. It can take several minutes sometimes. In worst case scenario, restart Oculus Quest
and it will go faster. Now, the latest version of the Pavlov OpenAlpha
is available in the official Pavlov Discord server. Use the link in my video description to join
the server. Once inside of the server, go to the channel
called #Quest-feedback. Now in the right top corner, click on the
icon “Pinned messages”. At the top, you will see a link to the latest
OpenAlpha version of Pavlov available, posted by the user “davevillz”. Click on it and you will see the link in the
main chat window. Just click on the link and download it to
a temporary folder on your Desktop for example. Now go into the folder, and extract the zip
file. Im using WinRAR but you can use any extraction
tool in Windows. Now you will see a batch file called install.bat. Just double click on it and wait for a while. This will install Pavlov on your Oculus Quest,
through the USB connection automatically. You do not need to side-load it manually. You will probably see some errors in the log,
but don’t worry, it will work anyway. I have no idea what these errors means or
deos, but it just works. The installation can take several minutes. Once its done, the window will just close
automatically. Now put on your Oculus Quest, go into your
library, now go to “Unknown Sources” and you will see the Pavlov game. Just click on it and start it up. The initial loading takes a while, sometimes
20 seconds or more, but eventually you will end up in the main menu, or the shooting range. Now guys, lets not forget this is all thanks
to the Pavlov developers so please give them some love in the Discord server. And remember this free versions of Pavlovis
only temporary, and once the game is officially released on the Oculus Store, it will probably
cost… Let me know what you think of this, and I
hope you found this video helpful! Thank you so much for watching and if you

  1. 4:05 This is not a bug, it's a setting called "virtual stock", to emulate the feeling of a gun stock and increase precision when aiming. You can turn it off in the settings.

  2. YES, That‘s Right! One of the best VR Shooter. The best is Firewall Zero Hour. In combination with the AIM Controller ubeatable. The Grafiks, the details, the texture, the AIM, The movement are brilliant! Its very impessive i think. Best regards

  3. I just tried the PSVR yesterday with an FPS for the first time, but it took me out of the immersion because I just got used to being able to turn around and move freely in real life on my Quest, but when I tried to do that in PSVR, it just messed up its tracking and told me to look back at the camera, even though I couldn't tell what direction that was without taking off the headset.

  4. Wait…..why are you doing playing "low end" VR? I thought you were only a "high end" VR gamer…hmmm 😁😁

  5. Do you know if this only works for Windows 10?? I've tried to connect my Oculus Quest in Developer Mode to a Windows 7 and 8 PC and it was recognized, but not correctly. Any thoughts??

  6. Okay. This was it. I've wanted to play Pavlov since it came out, I heard about the quest and got hopeful but it wasn't confirmed.

  12. Hello all! I have a question about this if anyone knows anything about it… On the Discord there seems to be 2 different ways to install this Alpha(7)- one from command line, and the other from 2 .bat files. I just wanted to know if I need to install "Nvidia codeworks for Android" on my PC(win.10) if I plan to install using the .bat files to install. I don't have an Nvidia graphics card… Any help would be greatly appreciated. How did you guys install, did you have luck with out installing "codeworks" AND no Nvidia card?

  13. It says in the command "Press any key to continue" and in some cases it will say "device not found" even though it pops up in my files

  14. Is it possible to download it from an android version? My computer is so old it wont even let me use discord

  15. My Pavlov won’t download I clicked installl.bat and it said something about the connection or storage. I’m also using s usb c from the Samsung s10 is that an issue

  16. wow look like enemies are out off bullets. They running forward to get killed without trying to kill you. are you playing super duper easy level? 🙂

  17. My graphics settings are at the highest level, but I don't experience any performance issues. Is it because I got the $500 dollar version of the Oculus Quest? 🤔
