  • XR Games today announces that it has been working with the team at ForeVR to develop ‘ForeVR Cornhole’ for Meta Quest 2

  • ForeVR Cornhole represents XR Games’ first-ever multiplayer title

  • Today’s release of ForeVR Cornhole joins ForeVR’s popular sports titles ‘ForeVR Bowl’ and ‘ForeVR Darts’

XR Games is proud to announce the release of ForeVR Cornhole for Meta Quest 2.

Working alongside the team at ForeVR, XR Games has adapted Cornhole (also known regionally as bags, sack toss, or bean bag toss) into a physics-based, strategic, sports game, featuring 50+ unique bags and boards, with classic and creative designs to suit each cornholer.



How do you play Cornhole?


ForeVR Cornhole, like its real-life counterpart, is based around the player taking turns throwing fabric bean bags at a raised, angled board with a hole in its far end. The goal of the game is to score points by either landing a bag on the board (one point) or putting a bag through the hole (three points).



Game features

  • Highly Customizable

  • More than 50 unique bags and boards to choose from

  • YouTube-powered jukebox with access to thousands of songs

  • Better than IRL Immersive Environments

  • Five immersive halls at launch: California Dreaming, Brooklyn Rooftop, ForeVR 90s Arcade, Cosmic Cornhole, and the VCL Arena. With more halls coming in future updates.

  • Track in-game achievements and stats

  • Tailored Gameplay

  • Single-player, multiplayer, and co-op game modes

  • Challengeable NPC Pros of varying difficulty in each hall

  • 1v1 and 2v2 team battles



Cornhole is available in 22 languages, and players of all ages and abilities can participate since the game can be played seated or standing supporting single-controller play.

A word from our Founder and CEO, Bobby Thandi


XR Games Founder and CEO Bobby Thandi had the following to say about today’s exciting release with ForeVR.

“Seeing the team at XR Games working alongside ForeVR to bring Cornhole to Meta Quest 2 audiences has been extremely exciting and rewarding for everyone at the studio.

For us it goes further than simply delivering a fantastic VR experience; It’s about showing the world what our teams are capable of. Being trusted to showcase our skills, experience, expertise and talent on a brand new ForeVR title just goes to show how far we’ve come over the past 18 months since the release of Zombieland: Headshot Fever.

Our recent round of investment has enabled XR Games to take on multiple projects at once, and this is only the beginning when it comes to delivering exciting new VR experiences with our partners from around the world.”



A word from Marcus Segal, Co-founder and CEO of ForeVR

ForeVR Co-Founder and CEO, Marcus Segal had the following comment to add about Cornhole’s release.

“As we bring the best of casual gaming to VR, we knew we had to incorporate cornhole – the world’s greatest backyard game,” said Marcus Segal, Co-founder and CEO of ForeVR Games.


“Even when you’re playing in one of our out-of-this-world environments – say, on the moon – our custom physics make the game feel hyper-realistic. It’ll bring out the same friendly competition you’ll find at a backyard BBQ or tailgate, and everyone – whether that’s your grandma or your old college buddy – will find themselves immersed in a world of fun.”
