Meta has taken a step toward its objective of making Horizon Worlds more accessible by making it available on the web and mobile devices.
The firm has announced that Super Rumble, the first game developed by its in-house studio Ouro Interactive, is now available to a limited number of mobile customers via the Android Meta Quest app.
It will also be available via the iOS app in the coming weeks, and those who want to play on a desktop can do so via Horizon’s official website (or request access to it).
When Meta initially released the first-person shooter, it stated that Super Rumble will be one of the first worlds available when its new app was released.
It also stated that the game will support cross-platform play, allowing players to enjoy it with their friends regardless of whether they are on mobile, the web, or a VR headset. Meta appears to have kept its promise.
The firm also said that it will be releasing new worlds in the coming months to allow users to hang out, communicate, and even enjoy free concerts in the metaverse regardless of what device they are using.
Meta explained: “The metaverse should be available to everyone — no matter what device they’re on.
“And while Quest headsets are the most immersive way to access the metaverse, we believe there should be multiple entry points. Bringing Worlds to more surfaces is a step toward delivering on that vision and opening up the experience to more people.”
Because each platform has a unique interface, Meta had to adjust the game’s controls such as mute and pause for mobile devices and computers.
It’s unclear how the experiences differ between platforms, but Super Rumble on mobile and the web is still in beta, so gamers may find glitches and other issues.
