Initially, Resident Evil 7 was only available for VR devices, but now you can play the game without VR on your PC with the help of Oculus Link cable and Airlink.
In the same way, you can also run your steam games like Resident evil 7 on your quest 2 headset easily. There’s more exciting game available on the steam store and one of those game is Half life 2. Recently they launched Half-Life 2 VR Mod for gamers and you can now play this game.
But is it worth it? Let’s find out:
- Resident Evil 7 is considered one of the finest vr versions of this entire series as it was awarded best vr game of 2017
- This game is also twice cheaper (will cost you around $20 on steam) compared to Resident evil 4
- The total chapter of resident evil 7 is gonna take at least 24 hours to finish completely
- Lastly, trust me, it’s scary as hell
How To Get Resident Evil 7 (Steam games) on Meta quest 2/pro?
The two ways of doing this are either by Airlink or using the Oculus Link cable.
Oculus Link Cable (Wired Method)
The Oculus Link cable is an official Oculus product that allows you to connect your Quest 2 to a PC and play SteamVR games. This is the recommended method as it provides the best gameplay experience.
To use Oculus Link, you’ll need to purchase the official Oculus Link cable which starts at $79.99.
You’ll also need a compatible PC or phone with a USB 3.0 or type c port. Once you have everything, simply connect your Quest 2 to your PC/mobile and launch the Oculus desktop app.
In the app, click on “Settings” and then select “Beta” from the left sidebar. From here, scroll down and toggle on “Oculus Link Beta”.
A new “Oculus Link” option should appear in the app once this is completed.
Click on “Oculus Link” and then follow the prompts to set up Oculus Link. Once it’s all set up, you’ll be able to play SteamVR games on your Quest 2.
Also, if you’re facing your link cable stuck on black screen, there’s a detailed blog about how to fix it in some simple steps.
Airlink (Wireless Method)
This is a convenient method if you don’t have a USB 3.0 port on your PC or if you want to play games in other rooms without having to worry about cables.
To use Airlink, you’ll first need to purchase the app which costs $9.99. Once you have the app, connect your Quest 2 to your PC and launch the Oculus desktop app.
In the app, click on “Settings” and then select “Beta” from the left sidebar. From here, scroll down and toggle on “Airlink Beta”.
Once this is done, you should see a new “Airlink” option appear in the app.
Click on “Airlink” and then follow the prompts to set up the app and done.
Some users reported their oculus Air Link not finding PC and I think its pretty normal to have. I’ve described the entire process how to fix the problem.
Resident Evil 7 VR Review
The biggest strength of RE7 in VR is its ability to make you feel like you’re really in the game’s environment.
The sense of immersion is incredible, and it’s one of the best examples of how VR can enhance a gaming experience.
The downside is that the game isn’t particularly long, and there are some sections that can be a bit repetitive.
Overall, RE7 is a great VR experience and well worth checking out if you’re a fan of the series or looking for a horror game to play in VR.
One of the most impressive things about RE7 in VR is how well it uses 3D sound to create a sense of presence.
You can hear enemies approach from all around you, and it really helps to add to the feeling that you’re in the game world.
The visual design is also top-notch, and the environments are convincingly realized.
Even though the game isn’t particularly long, there’s a good variety of locations to explore, and each one feels distinct.
That said, the game does a great job of ramping up the tension as you progress, and the final few hours are some of the most intense and suspenseful I’ve ever experienced in a video game.

Using the Mod version of the game, you can now play in first person with a new perspective.
