After the memes about the metaverse, Mark Zuckerberg promises visual improvements in ‘Horizon Worlds’

  • 27

There is still a long way to go before the concept of the metaverse, as Meta envisions it, becomes a reality. As a prelude to this immersive experience, Mark Zuckerberg announced the launch of ‘Horizon Worlds’ in Spain and France, a multiplayer platform launched in some countries in 2021 in which we can have our avatar, make constructions, organize meetings, participate in eventsamong other things, through the Oculus Rift S and Meta Quest 2 virtual reality headsets.

Zuckerberg’s announcement, which was accompanied by a selfie of him next to representations of La Sagrada Familia and the Eiffel Tower, took a backseat when many people were disappointed with the visual quality of the capture and soon turned it into a meme. What should be a stepping stone to the metaverse seemed like a bad copy of Wii Sports. This reaction apparently did not go unnoticed by the CEO of the company and this Friday announced enhancements to the ‘Horizon Worlds’ platform.

Updates to improve ‘Horizon’ on the way

According to Zuckerberg, ‘Horizon Worlds’ will receive “major updates”, which will improve the visual quality of the avatars. “The graphics in Horizon are capable of so much more (even on headsets) and Horizon is improving very quickly,” she said. Furthermore, he responded to the negative user reaction by claiming that he knew the image posted earlier this week was basic. “It was taken very quickly to celebrate a launch,” she added.

For now, there is no scheduled date for the expected updates of ‘Horizon Worlds’. However, the company promised to provide more details at his Connect event which will take place later this year (there is no confirmed date, but last year’s was held in October). It remains to be seen what direction he is taking in his metaverse concept and what are the results of the first 13,000 million dollars invested since it was announced.

We do know, however, that the development of this project has had to face several setbacks. Meta planned to hire 10,000 employees, but has reconfigured its plans. In addition, he is aware that in order to achieve the “immersive experience almost indistinguishable from reality“that promises, you need to create devices that don’t exist yet. And, precisely, you are spending a large part of your budget on making the technology mature.
