The online virtual reality metaverse Horizon Worlds will now be available in France and Spain for players over the age of 18, Meta announced Tuesday.
Mark Zuckerberg, Meta’s founder and CEO, was excited for people to explore and create immersive worlds and that this will soon be introduced in more countries.
He revealed that they are always working to add more features and tools that allow people to customize their own experiences, Meta wrote in a blog post. In addition, they want everyone to have authority over their Horizon Worlds experience.
Horizon Worlds’ VR Conduct Policy and Prohibited Content Policy lay out what is and isn’t allowed on the platform, respectively.
Users have some options if someone is bothering them. Users can access the Safe Zone by tapping the shield icon on their wrist menu.
In this window, users can block, mute or report anyone acting inappropriately while taking a break from their surroundings.
Tech giant Meta has also introduced a new information rating system for “mature audiences” in an effort to make it more user-friendly.
Sexually suggestive material, worlds devoted to the promotion of drugs, alcohol, tobacco or age-restricted activities (including gambling), and intense or exorbitantly violent fictional material, such as blood and gore, that might shock or disgust users, are allowed on Horizon, but must be labeled “Mature,” according to Meta.
The onboarding process that all new Horizon Worlds users go through includes instructions on how to use the Safe Zone.
In addition, depending on the circumstances, anyone who violates our policies may have their account limited, suspended or disabled, the company stated.
