Racket: Nx - Custom Avatars Update
Racket: Nx is a new kind of game that challenges the limits of what you can do with a racket and ball in VR. The game is played inside a giant glass dome, the walls of which light up with targets you must destroy with the ball. But this is no ordinary ball! Hit it with force and it will slam into the wall, rolling across it and bulldozing everything in its path. Use your racket's tractor beam to pull it back, or simply to line up your next shot exactly where you want it. Be quick and plan your shots well. The latest Racket: Nx update kicks off a new season with rules updates—and lets you unlock achievements to customize your avatar’s appearance.

Perfect For: Fans of Eleven Table Tennis, Sports Scramble, and Racket Fury: Table Tennis VR
Developer: One Hamsa
Available On: Quest Platform // Rift Platform

Golf 5 eClub - Forest Golf Course
The new Golf 5 eClub update is here! It includes the first nine holes of the new Forest Golf Course, with the back nine coming soon. This beautifully designed course lets you make amazing shots through (and with) the trees, thanks to its playable rough. The update also adds playable rough to the Dunes Golf Course, enhancing the experience. There’s also a new High Precision Control option, with ultra-realistic golf physics and swing detection, plus extra tracking info so you have all the golf shot data you need to understand and improve your game in real-time.

Perfect For: Fans of Golf+, Walkabout Mini Golf, and Real VR Fishing
