Sorry, Zuck. “Fortnite” has always been the “real” Metaverse.

Virtual offices. Floating bodies, without legs. Mark Zuckerberg VR. I was skeptical too metaverse like anyone but Fortnite got me out of this disappointment. It showed me that not only is the metaverse already here, it’s already awesome, whatever dystopia Zuckerberg is trying to sell to you.

I don’t know what this did. This could be where Goku is coming from Dragon Ball Z box hitting the grill. Or maybe it was the time someone killed me while I fidgeted trying to figure out the firing controls, so I spent several minutes taming a wild boar in a nearby bioluminescent forest. After that, my virtual killer flew off using one of the car’s sentries The matrix as a portable glider. It was a dizzying display of bizarre things that suddenly came together and left my jaw on the floor as I watched him play on my TV.

One thing is clear: Fortnite it’s not really a video game. It is a virtual meeting space with a video game in progress around and it’s more accessible than anything a VR headset, like Meta’s, requires Worlds of the horizon Where is it VRChat. It is totally free and available on every gaming device and phone on the planet.

Twitter can’t stop diving into Meta’s Horizon Worlds

It is like Player on loan one it was nice

People seem to have forgotten this Fortnite it was originally a game on build outposts to survive hordes of monsters. Ever since I have a battle royale mode (where 100 players drop onto a map and fight until there is only one left) in 2017, the game has been a bit of a puzzle for me. I blinked and suddenly this weird game that came out with little fanfare and got a cool mode became massive less than a year later. I played it for a while in 2018 because it was free and I had nothing better to do, but I just thought it was a decent video game. I never thought it would become the premier internet dating destination.

And then it started. In 2018, developer Epic Games briefly added Marvel villain Thanos as a playable threat Fortnite and the cross barrage began. For the past four years, like a snowball that has unleashed an avalanche, my friends I have never the thought would be Fortnite people have become …Fortnite people, including our loved one former Mashable game guru Adam Rosenberg. My social feeds eventually became filled with frankly hilarious screenshots of Thanos dabbing and videos of things like a virtual avatar of Hollywood wrestler and muscleman John Cena riding the titular dragon of DBZ.

Once the avalanche completely consumed me and I moved Fortnite on my PlayStation, I’ve finally begun to realize that everything that happens in the battle royale part of the experience doesn’t really matter. Sure, winning is good, but it’s secondary to see Goku, John Cena, Darth Vader and street fighterRyu does two-year TikTok dances before or after a lightsaber duel.

You can simply explore the vast map (which includes cities, islands, the aforementioned luminous forest, deserts, and more) and do missions to unlock more silly skins and accessories. You can go “fishing”. You can hop into a car with a working radio station and simply take a ride through the landscape, or do the same with a boat in one of the map’s huge lakes. It is not enough social like something like this VRChat; you can’t just chat with someone (just friends you’ve added to your party), which means a lot of socializing happens in the form of dancing. But honestly, talking to strangers online can still be a hassle, so I don’t mind that much.

Epic adds new items to the map several times a year and updates the in-game store daily with new skins that can be purchased for real money, which is the only part of Fortniteit’s the wild metaverse that I don’t like. Having to spend some money to be Goku was a shame. There was also a Balenciaga haute couture collaboration with branded leathers for sale. But Epic made $ 9 billion in just two years, so I can’t blame the company for doing it that way. And the good news is that you can access every part of the map and participate in the real one Game part of Fortnite free of charge, without any restrictions.

And that’s not to mention the crazy concerts they’ve held with artists like Ariana Grande and Travis Scott. Everything works because the ultimate goal is to to have fun, no matter what you choose to do. Nobody supports it Fortnite it will revolutionize dating or exercise, or business meetings, as so many VR apps (both Meta and other) have promised to do in the past. However, if someone has held meetings in the FortniteI would be impressed.

Regardless of whether Fortnite it doesn’t have the best shooting controls or anything else; there is simply no other game or app that offers this experience any game console or mobile device you could possibly own.

But in the end, Meta always wins

Well, all devices except the one Meta is aiming for to spread the word about its version of the Metaverse. Till now, Fortnite has taken control of all gaming ecosystems except virtual reality, but it is said that this may soon change.

A tweet from Fortnite HYPEX leaker claimed that in a recent game update there was a language that indicated support for Meta search headphones sometimes on the line. As much as I’d like to place Fortnite as a good version of the (perhaps unfairly) much maligned Worlds of the horizon Meta’s app, it would definitely be a hit if Fortnite received support from Quest.


Meta raises the price of Quest 2 VR headsets by $ 100

Although I and others have complained that Mark Zuckerberg is trying to force us to wear VR headsets for work, it’s a no-brainer to get Fortnite in the Quest market. Heck, it would probably also be fun to play, since Fortnite it’s a fun and silly time no matter where you play it. Added VR support for Fortnite it would only cement it as the one true metaverse.

Now, if you want to excuse me, I’ll have Vegeta rear-ended after crashing a speedboat on a fishing pier.
