Meta Launched its Virtual Reality Game called Horizon Worlds

The Index Today

Meta is bringing its vision of a so-called metaverse closer to (virtual) reality.

Meta, the company formerly known as Facebook said last Thursday that Horizon Worlds, a free app for socializing in VR that has been long in the making, is now open to anyone 18 and older in the United States and Canada.

According to the reliable source, Horizon Worlds is not a fully fleshed-out metaverse. That hard-to-define concept refers to efforts to build a wide-ranging virtual realm that people can walk around within, via digital avatars, and interact with others who are also there virtually. But the launch is one of the biggest efforts the company has undertaken to popularize VR — and virtual socializing — since its purchase of Oculus in 2014.

In the Horizon Worlds, headset-wearing users can meet up with friends and new people, play games and create their own worlds. Users, who appear as heavily customizable but legless avatars, can move their actual fingers and hands to gesticulate in VR, and their avatars' mouths appear to move in lifelike ways as how they actually speak.
