Facebook announced Horizon, its own VR sandbox universe where you can build your own games, play and socialize with friends.
Facebook Horizon is due to launch in closed beta in early 2020. And it will be a game changer. The platform will allow users to design their own avatars, hop between virtual environments using Teleppods, watch movies and play games with their friends.
Keen to keep its VR world safe, Facebook Horizon will include real human guides, the Horizon Locals, who will be available to give users assistance and keep them safe from trolls.
Users interested in early access can apply for the beta here.
The launch of Facebook Horizon means that the company will soon pull the plug on its existing social VR experiences, including Facebook Spaces and Oculus Rooms.
