Patchnotes via Steam Community

This update we've revamped our new user experience, avatar customization...honestly it's so much it's dizzying!

Redesigned title screen!

  • You are now greeted by your smiling Avatar
  • Nice and sunny in VR (definitely no ghosts lurking in the corner anymore)
  • Consistent look and layout on all platforms
  • New experience for creating accounts

New Avatar Customization menu!

  • Beautiful new design and refined layout
  • 2D animated render of your Avatar (that you can rotate!)
  • Outfit items are organized by the "slot" they go in
  • Easily unequip items with the "None" option
  • Undo and Redo for each change you make
  • Want to mix things up? You can now Randomize your whole Avatar
  • Improved experience of adjusting your eyes, mouth, and hat
  • Did we mention you can see how your hat looks from all sides?
  • You can now try on premium hair dye colors before buying!
  • Permanent hair dyes are less expensive
  • Temporary dyes are being removed and refunded if you have them in the backpack or currently active


For users who are just coming to Rec Room for the first time, we've added a quick and delightful introductory tour of the Rec Room Campus. This is our chance to showcase the things we all love most about Rec Room -- our community values, our exciting games, and the enormous and growing library of user-created content to explore!

  • All new users go through Orientation as their first in-game experience.
  • If you're an existing user who just wants to check out Orientation, it's just another room you can visit any time you'd like. You can find it by searching for ^Orientation in your Play Menu.

Dodgeball Improvements

We've improved the dodgeball throwing experience for screen players. They will now stand a better chance playing against VR players (but not too OP!)

  • You can now aim your throw more accurately on screens with the help of a visible reticle.
  • The dodgeball trajectory is now more predictable and powerful on screen with fine-tuned animations and launching speed.
  • Charging your throw will now have no impact on the dodgeball's launch speed. It merely allows you to hold it.

Dear Creators, Introducing... Green Screen

A bright green backdrop to help with video production!

  • Find it in the Palette under the Creative tab
  • It can be scaled non-uniformly, and has configurable physics modes
  • We can't wait to see your videos!

General Improvements

  • Iterated on the layout of touch controls.
  • Fixed screen players being unable to equip items from a gift box.
  • We've improved the "Always Face Viewer" config option on the Text Gadget for comfort in VR
  • We've also added an "Include Pitch" option, which will allow the text to pitch (tilt up and down) when set to "Always Face Viewer"
  • The Select Tool's Quick Action Menu now pitches up and down to face the player

Beta Content Changes

  • Adds a new CV2 chip for checking whether a player is a subscriber to one of the current room's owners
  • Adds a new CV2 chip for checking whether a player is one of the current room's owners
