The Future of Metaverse in VR GamingPhoto Source:


Last October 28, CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced the rebranding of The Facebook Company. The tech giant and social media company is now called "Meta," to go along with its new vision for the future. This new vision includes bringing Metaverse to all users globally and helping people connect more. Meta verse is a space in the virtual world where people can interact and do several activities as they do in the physical world.

Although the term "metaverse" sounds new to most people, gamers and sci-fans have known the word. In the Metaverse, users create a virtual version of themselves in an avatar that can interact with a 3D virtual environment and with other users' avatars. In this 3D virtual environment, users can do anything they like with their friends. These activities include playing sports, traveling to different virtual places/worlds, watching videos together, and even attending live concerts on the other side of the world. With Metaverse, being at the moment whenever or wherever you are is possible.

From 1992 to 2004, tech companies and organizations have created 3D virtual worlds or "metaverses" in games and applications that allow users' avatars to play, interact, and buy items using digital currencies. We have "Active World," which was released in 1995. Then there was Team Fortress, released in 1996, and in 2003, Linden Lab launched Second Life, and Makena Technologies launched There.

Over the years, the Metaverse has evolved, and the latest games in the market started introducing it. As Facebook puts it, they think that Metaverse will be the future of immersive experience.
