Sansar Social VR Now In Creator Beta

Sansar Social VR Now In Creator Beta

Social VR platform, Sansar, opened its creator beta to the public yesterday. Developed by Linden Lab, the company behind the hugely popular Second Life virtual world, Sansar is available on Rift, Vive and Windows PC.

Sansar’s Atlas directory already features hundreds of virtual experiences, including multiplayer games, recreations of historic sites and landmarks, art installations, movie theatres, museums, narrative experiences, jungle temples, 360 video domes, sci-fi themed hangouts, and more.

Creators who were invited to the platform during a limited-access preview have published thousands of public and private experiences, and with the opening of beta today, the world is now invited to join them.

"Sansar democratises social VR," said Ebbe Altberg, CEO of Linden Lab. "Until now, complexity and cost has limited who could create and publish in this medium, and Sansar dramatically changes that. It's been inspiring to see the thousands of virtual creations that have already published with Sansar during our limited preview, and I'm looking forward to the explosion of creativity we'll see now that we’ve opened the doors in beta.”

Steve has been a games journalist on and off since the first PlayStation made games ‘cool’, but he’s never forgotten the thrill of finding a Space Invaders machine in the wild. Neuromancer is one of his favourite books and The Matrix is one of his favourite movies, so he’s been ready for VR all his life.
