Sorry, Zuck. “Fortnite” Is Always The “Real” Metaverse.

Virtual offices. Floating bodies, no legs. The Mark Zuckerberg VR. I have my doubts too metaverse like anyone but Fortnite saved me from this failure. It shows me that not only is the metaverse here, it’s already good — whatever dystopia Zuckerberg is trying to sell you.

I don’t know what it did. Maybe this is where Goku comes from Dragon Ball Z box hit the grid. Or maybe it was the time someone killed me while I was fumbling around trying to figure out the firing controls, then spent a few minutes chasing a pig in a nearby bioluminescent forest. After that, my virtual assassin took off with one of the machine guards on The matrix as a portable glider. It was a dizzying display of strange things that suddenly came together and left my jaw on the floor as I watched it play on my TV.

One thing is clear: Fortnite not really a video game. It’s a virtual meeting space with a video game taking place surroundings and it’s more accessible than anything that requires a VR headset, like the Meta World World hope VRChat. It’s completely free and works on every gaming device and phone on the planet.

As if Loan player one it was good

People seem to have forgotten about him Fortnite originally a play about build outposts to survive hordes of monsters. Since there was a battle royale mode (where 100 players dropped into a map and fought until only one was left) in 2017, the game became a bit of a question for me. I blinked and suddenly this amazing game that came out with a little offer and got a trendy mode was done place less than a year ago. 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 be the top dating destination on the internet.

And then it started. In 2018, developer Epic Games quickly added the Marvel villain Thanos as a game threat to Fortnite and the cross barrage began. Over the past four years, like a snowball causing an avalanche, the friends I have never the mind becomes Fortnite people become…Fortnite people, including our loved ones former Mashable game guru Adam Rosenberg. My social feeds were eventually 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 in DBZ.

Once the avalanche completely consumed me and I moved Fortnite on my PlayStation, I’m finally starting to realize that everything that happens in the battle royale part of the experience doesn’t really matter. Of course, winning is good, but it comes second to seeing Goku, John Cena, Darth Vader and street fighterTwo-year-old TikTok Ryu dances before or after a lightsaber duel.

You can explore the vast map (which includes cities, islands, the aforementioned glowing forests, deserts, etc.) and do quests to unlock more skins and accessories without purely. You can “fish”. You can get in a car with a working radio station and just ride the scenery, or do a boat on one of the big lakes on the map. It is not enough as social as something VRChat; you can’t just voice chat with anyone (only friends you’ve added to your party), which means a lot of socializing happens in the form of dancing. But, really, talking to strangers online can be a drag, so I don’t mind that.

Epic adds new items to the map several times a year and updates the in-game store every day with new skins to buy with real money, which is the only part of Fortniteis the wild metaverse I don’t want. Spending a few bucks to become Goku is a bummer. There is even a Balenciaga haute couture collaboration with branded leathers for sale. But Epic made $9 billion in revenue in just two years, so I can’t blame the company for doing it this way. And the good news is that you can access every part of the map and really participate drama part of Fortnite which is free, without any restrictions.

And not to mention the crazy concerts they give artists like Ariana Grande and Travis Scott. Everything works because the end goal is enjoy, whatever you choose to do. No one claims that Fortnite will transform dating or exercise, or work meetings, as many VR apps (both from Meta and others) have promised to do in the past. However, if someone is holding meetings on FortniteI would be impressed.

Even if Fortnite no best shooting controls or anything; no other game or app offers this experience in every game console or mobile device you can own.

But the Meta always wins in the end

Well, all but one of the devices that Meta is relying on to spread the word about its version of the Metaverse. Currently, Fortnite The entire gaming ecosystem has been taken over except for VR, but rumor has it that could change soon.

A tweet from Fortnite Leaker HYPEX said that there is language in a recent game update that shows support for Meta Quest headset sometimes on the line. As far as my preferred position Fortnite as a good version of (perhaps unfairly) very damaged World World app from Meta, it’s definitely a hit if Fortnite got support from Quest.


Meta has raised the price of Quest 2 VR headsets by $100

Even though I and others complain that Mark Zuckerberg is trying to force us to wear VR headsets for work, there is no brain to be gained. Fortnite in the Quest market. Heck, that might be fun to play, ever Fortnite a fun and crazy time wherever you play it. Added VR support for Fortnite just cement it as the only true metaverse.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to wipe Vegeta after crashing a speedboat into a fishing port.
