I just check yestarday my oculus and nothing change. I revisited the Website where I bought the game and there is no Download icon. 


I bought the game 4 weeks ago and I can’t download it. When I am going on the website its telling me allready bought but I don’t know How to download the game. There is no button for download and no download start automatically.


On your PC start the Oculus App. Now go to the Store section within the Oculus App - search for Defector and click on the game. Is there now a download option? 


Btw, when asking for help always provide info like:

1) Which kind of PC do you use - gpu, cpu etc.

2) Which hmd do you use - Rift CV1, Rift-Sm Quest, Quest 2? 

Oculus Rift CV1, Valve Index & PSVR2, Asus Strix OC RTX™ 3090, i9-10900K (5.3Ghz), 32GB 3200MHz, 16TB SSD

Hi RuneSR2

I have Quest2. I am a Little bit confused right now. Do I have to download the game on my PC to Play it? 

Of course - Defector is PC VR - you need a beefy PC to play the game. The game is only available in the Rift Store.


Defector can only be downloaded and installed on a PC. Using cable or Airlink you can connect your Quest 2 to your PC to play the best VR games on the planet.  


Defector is here - it clearly states what gpu and cpu your PC needs to have for the game:


Your Quest 2 is extremely weak for the gpu (it's basically a gpu made for phones), it cannot at all handle real VR games like Defector - you need the brute force of a gaming pc to be able to enjoy high-end VR gaming.

Thank you very much for your informations. I really apreciate.
