House Pirate Coach DX launches on Oculus Quest 2 with new multiplayer modes
The virtual reality arcade shooter Space Pirate Trainer DX is released today exclusively for Oculus Quest 2 and other Oculus VR headsets.
The updated version of the 2017 VR first person shooter includes two new multiplayer modes. The first is Versus, where players compete against each other to defeat waves of enemies. The gameplay is similar to the single player mode, but shooting a droid makes a new one appear in the opponent’s game and vice versa. Versus can be played through matchmaking against a friend or against a random player.
The other new multiplayer mode is Arena and requires a much larger physical space, at least 10 mx 10 m (32 ft x 32 ft), to play. According to the studio, “a large gym or garage is likely a solid bet for best results,” and the Space Pirate Trainer DX store page has hints to try out “empty halls, tennis courts, and basketball courts”. Although not specifically stated, areas should be indoors as the Oculus Quest cannot be used outdoors in direct sunlight. Arena turns the great room into a game of hide and seek with weapons that can be played with a friend online or in the same physical room using the co-located arena mode.

Space Pirate Trainer DX is available starting today for $ 25 for Oculus Quest headsets. The new multiplayer modes are also available as a free update for previous Space Pirate Trainer owners with Oculus headsets. Although the original game was released for HTC Vive and Windows Mixed Reality headsets, this update is an exclusive Oculus perk.
