Skyrim VR reimagines the beyond-belief open-world, which in my opinion, is the excellence of this game. You truly “FEEL” what you do in VR and that’s what you become.

This game is an Absolute Masterpiece. I have no different words to depict this game and playing Skyrim in VR is just absolutely amazing

*But to play Skyrim VR on your Quest headset, you will need a gaming PC.

  4. Minimum PC Requirements:

    Processor: Core i5-7500 / Ryzen 5 1600

Method 3 — Meta Airlink; The free wireless method but stable gameplay depends mainly on the WiFi speed.

Just like Meta released Meta Link for wired PCVR, they released Meta Air Link for wireless PCVR. Air link allows you to play Skyrim VR on your meta quest headset for Free and wirelessly.

So here’s how you can set up Meta Air Link to Play Steam VR Games on Meta Quest without any Hassle and Errors…

I prefer Air Link for playing PCVR games on my quest because I like to keep my VR experiences cable free but if you don’t have high-speed internet then go ahead and choose Meta Link.

*Air Link Requirements*

  1. To use Air Link, our PC must meet the minimum specifications for the Meta Link
  2. Make sure you have a PC solid enough to run the games in VR properly.
  3. The WiFi connection must be 5 GHz.
  4. I personally recommend having a specific router like the ASUS AX5400. In which only the Meta Quest is connected wirelessly. Since putting more devices will make the experience worse.
  5. Also, make check that your Meta Quest 2 and your PC are connected to the same Wi-Fi network.

Voila! Play Skyrim VR On Your Meta Quest Headset.

Now, all you need to do is, connect your Meta Quest headset to your PC using the Meta link/Virtual Desktop/Air link and go to Steam on your PC and search for Skyrim VR.

Or after connecting your Quest headset to your PC, you can put on your Meta Quest and then directly open Skyrim VR while you’re in VR.

And Boom! Enjoy playing Skyrim VR on any Meta Quest headset!
