AltspaceVR releases new Worlds and custom building kits

Posted on August 8, 2018

AltspaceVR just released the easiest way to create your own sharable space in virtual reality. Easily drag and drop objects in a space on all AltspaceVR-compatible headsets — including Oculus Go and Gear VR. Save the space and then invite others to join your space. This is step one of a greater plan to make sure our community can help build AltspaceVR with us. Today our community will have basic kits that they can use to build their environment. We’ll aim to release more kits so folks can have more options to customize their world.

This experience is fun and easy no matter what level you’re at. Choose from a kit based on our most popular environments, Campfire and Alien Planet, and make it your own. Excited? Attend a world-building event to connect with the design and development community and help make AltspaceVR a world that encompasses all of your creativity.

We’re so excited to see the new worlds you build in virtual reality. We’ll feature the best worlds and share your world on @AltspaceVR on Twitter and Facebook. We can’t wait to see all of your wonderful creations.


Building Kits: Campfire & Alien Planet

Build custom worlds and new virtual hangouts. Customize the environment by choosing assets from our curated library of shapes, structures, and flora. Show us your creativity! Create spaces with structure, design, and purpose.
