Title: Oculus Avatars, Parties, and Rooms are Making VR More Social!
Post by: Tbone on October 06, 2016, 08:53:31 pm
It's the grouping system we've been waiting for! First, you will be able to customize your own avatar. VR developers will be able to implement this avatar into their games. This means you could potentially be in your avatar in AscensionVR, Dragon Front, AltSpace, etc. It can easily be compared to Nintendo's Mii avatar system.

So you have your avatar - now what. Well, now you can form parties outside of applications. You and up to seven of your friends can group up for voice chat in Oculus Home. But is voice chat enough? Oculus is taking it a step further. You can take your party and go into an Oculus Room. From here you can chat, play mini-games, and launch multiplayer games/apps as a group! VR will now have a true launching pad!

This is obviously all great news for us! I'm really excited for these features to be implemented. Oculus Avatars are coming to the Rift December 6th with the rest of the system coming "early next year".
