Does the boss of Meta (ex-Facebook) believe that France and other European countries are ready for the metaverse? To see his recent statement, the time to open wide the door to the immersive world has sounded in the Old Continent. And this via Horizon Worlds. But a question arises, will Zuckerberg be able to monopolize the metaverse throughout Europe?
Horizon Worlds arrives in France and Europe
As Vitalik Buterin’s prediction of Meta’s failure is slow in coming, Mark Zuckerberg shifts into high gear. He has just made the announcement via his facebook account last Monday.
” We’re launching Horizon Worlds in France and Spain today! We can’t wait to see people explore and build immersive worlds, and bring that to other countries soon. »
So, from now on, all people aged 18 and over residing in the two aforementioned countries will be able to enjoy the social VR experience embedded in Horizon Worlds. As soon as they join the related community, French-speaking and Spanish-speaking users will have access to the thousands of worlds already created, such as:
- Pixel Plummeta multiplayer game featuring a retro platformer battle royale;
- Wand & Broom (Wand and Broom), a sightseeing experience above Townscity, aboard a magic broomstick and equipped with a wand;
- Mark’s Riverboata relaxing trip aboard a 3-decker boat with friends;
” We want Horizon Worlds to be a safe and respectful environment, so everyone should follow a conduct policy in VR », specifies the team of Meta.
Note that the United Kingdom and Ireland have already been offered access to Horizon Worlds. It was in June and July last. Now it’s the turn of France and the country of Corrida to be pampered.
What to do in these worlds?
As a reminder, Horizon Worlds is like a social VR application allowing its users to explore virtual worlds in an immersive and interactive way. And it belongs to Zuckerberg’s Meta.
Horizon Worls first went public in the US and Canada in December 2021. Just a few months after Facebook’s makeover. On this occasion, the first members of the community had the pleasure of playing a 3v3 laser tag game, Arena Clash, freshly launched by the group in Mark.
Also, they were offered new mechanics and models conducive to the creation of their own game. Or to the modification of work scripts to achieve the same objective.
Two months after this launch, The Verge tallied 300,000 users for Horizon Worlds. It is quite normal that this virtual world can attract so much since access was made free at the time.
If you want to be part of the first pioneers of Horizon Worlds in France, don’t hesitate to take a look at Oculus.com to download the app. In addition, an integration of official facebook group associated with the project is required if additional information is required. Let the adventure begin!
