Meta is making the Quest+ subscription actually worth it

Since it's debut in 2023, the Meta Quest+ subscription service has been met with tepid responses across the board. It's certainly nice to get free games each month, but when most are mediocre, unexciting, or old enough that most people have purchased them already, it can lead to a lot of disappointment.

Fortunately, the subscription for some of the best VR headsets on the market is getting a much-needed improvement. As confirmed by the Meta Quest blog, starting on March 1, subscribers will get access to an ever-changing games catalogue that will see new games join, and old games leave. But it's much better than the two "free" games we've been getting per month like the standard PlayStation Plus.

Much like Xbox Game Pass, there will be 12 games that subscribers can start playing from today that may or may not leave in the next few months. However, additional games will join the service to keep things fresh. The games that are available right now are:

  • The Climb
  • Demeo
  • Espire 1: VR Operative
  • Fruit Ninja
  • Hand Physics Lab
  • Jurassic World: Aftermath Collection
  • Onward
  • Red Matter
  • Township Tale
  • Sports Scramble
  • Until You Fall
  • Walkabout Mini Golf

In all honesty, this is an absolutely stellar list of Quest+ games, especially for those who have just got a Quest headset. Demeo has long been touted as one of the best VR games, Walkabout Mini Golf is an absolutely solid and fun game, and there's so many great games above that it'll arguably worth picking the subscription up solely to play these titles instead of buying them outright.

Fortunately, those who pick up the Meta Quest 3 512GB over the 128GB model will get six months of Quest+ with their purchase. Existing owners can get a free trial for one month of Quest+, and you have until December 31, 2024 to use the free period.

This is definitely a promising change to the service, which has undoubtedly been very disappointing. Hopefully, Meta can bring in some excellent titles, especially exclusives, in the near future.
