Star Wars Squadrons works with Oculus Quest 2

I’m not going to review the game. There are plenty of reviews out there already. It’s great! The really cool thing is I’m playing it with my Quest 2 headset on which makes it even cooler. When you are in a dog fight, it makes it much easier to keep track of where other ships are as you can just follow them with your eyes until the ship is able to bank around to have them in your sights again. Very cool. It also cool the way they handle the hangars as well, allow you to leap/teleport to different pre-set points and then look at everything in 360 from that angle.

I’m using Virtual Desktop to make the magic happen. First I purchased Squadrons on Steam (on sale at the moment!). I played it on my PC to make sure I had our Thrustmaster flight stick setup. I also made sure I was signed into my EA account as not doing that causes an annoying prompt in VR which is hard to get around (for me anyway). Then I put on my Quest 2 and launched Virtual Desktop. If you have not set up Virtual Desktop for playing VR games on Stream, there are other videos that will explain how to do that. (Basically, you buy it from the Oculus store, then use load and use SideQuest to install a sideloaded Virtual Desktop app that allows for the playing of Stream Desktop Games on Quest and Quest 2.) So, after launching Virtual Desktop, I select the “Games” menu and click on Squadrons. Boom! That’s it. Enjoy!
