After posting, I was wondering how they plan on monetizing it and I found this on a Reddit thread for the Steam version of the game [reddit.com] ...
Quote :
Early Access will be free. We plan to add at least one (entirely optional) feature to test out the payment pipeline.

After launch, we plan to add some premium features over time that cost money (examples might be scheduled tournaments, or special avatar items). But our current plan is to always have a free tier that lets you get into the game and have a great experience. That could change depending on how the VR market develops, but that's our current thinking.
UPDATE: I found more information on the developer's blog [againstgrav.com] about the game, modes, and why it is free...
Quote :
"Wait... if it's free, how are you staying in business?"

We'd also like to recognize another group that has helped make Rec Room possible this past year, our investors. We were incredibly fortunate to find a group of people who believed in our vision of real-time social interaction, and were inspired to help us build an app that doesn't follow the conventional model. Importantly, they've supported our commitment to keeping Rec Room a free download, so anyone can join our community.

...we've raised $5M to continue to build the future of Social VR.

Before this you had to sign up for the closed Beta to get an activation key. They opened it up to stress test their systems. Although this game is not without bugs it is pretty fun to play. Additionally, this game is cross platform with all high end VR Systems (Oculus, Vive, PSVR, etc...). In other words there will always be someone playing.

Is this not just an open beta? I thought it was going to be a paid app?

So posting free to play games qualifies as a deal now?

No microtransactions (yet) so I thought it was worth posting

No need to explain yourself. Clearly many individuals are happy with the post and that's enough to justify it. Some folks just like to complain.

This is a super fun game. And to be free is amazing. FYI, language can get bad so if young kids are playing I recommend muting chat.
