Meta VR Population One Update

Brings Fortnite-Like Level Building Tools

The new Sandbox mode in Population: One, a Meta VR battle royale game, is now available to all players in early access and allows users to create their own levels with unique rules. With the new feature, developer BigBox VR continues the tradition of popular multiplayer games like Minecraft from Microsoft and Fortnite from Epic Games by providing players with the ability to build their own 3D settings, but with Population: One, the players can do it in virtual reality.

Wondering what new things can you do? Now, you can choose from a sizable selection of buildings and objects to place all over your level as you build. And there are numerous ways to reposition or move those parts, in addition to scaling them up or down. If you have never played Population: One before, then you might be concerned that the tools would be too advanced for you as a relative newcomer to VR. But once you figure it out, it will not take long for you to feel comfortable using the Quest 2’s controllers to lower objects. You will be racing around to every part of the test map to set objects precisely where you want, thanks to a Minecraft or Fortnite-like ability to fly while creating.

New Areas

There is a tour of a map in space, with a wonderful option to place enormous asteroids all over it. Another is a pond-themed map named Lily Pad, which is sure to be explored, and you will be pleased by how the author replicated both places above and below the water’s surface. Although the visuals on the Quest 2 weren’t excellent, the game is still very much imaginative. Lily Pad and a few other useful maps are seen, as well as a castle with enormous chess pieces and a vast mini-golf course. There are also some of the levels created by early Sandbox testers, which appear to be much more intriguing to explore.
