‘Horizon Worlds’, Meta’s first metaverse is opening for public and you just need carry Oculus
Free access to Meta’s “Horizon Worlds” VR platform for US and Canadian residents over 18. With a VR headset, users may play games, roam around, and even plan events.
Meta’s metaverse is forming. Or at least, “Horizon Worlds” marks Meta’s first public foray into the field. This massive online platform, based on a block-based building game similar to Minecraft, promises to connect users together through communities. This project’s focus will be on social interaction.
Thousands of participants organised movie evenings, comedy events, and meditation sessions during the 2019 private beta tests. The platform is just for Meta’s Oculus Quest 1 and 2.
The accent is on creativity. With Meta’s capabilities, one can create virtual items, lands, and environments.
Vivek Sharma, Meta’s vice president of Horizon, told company can now be more open. Meta has a strong sense of inventiveness.
Horizon Worlds lets users rewrite code to create physical laws, such as how objects work. Imagination is key to the process. Meta employs “script blocks”. Thus, each thing can have its own personality.
A substantial free library of scripts written by Meta workers is planned. Creaters of items could receive in-universe rewards or even money from the American company.
Harmonious exploration of the universe requires both safety and support. The features allow users to block, mute, or report any participant causing a disruption. Meta workers will train users to produce guides to help them better grasp the cosmos.
For now, the company’s much-anticipated metaverse is only accessible via a Meta VR headset.
