Fortnite is known for its immersive experience that connects loopers with the virtual multiverse island. It has connected various universes of different genres that have entered the world of the looped island. Due to this, loopers seemingly experience and witness different scenarios and adventures.
Ultimately, this creates the concept of the Metaverse, where people find a virtual platform to communicate and experience events that aren't possible in the real world.
The game's community also played a major role in making this concept of the Metaverse a reality sooner than expected. SypherPK went one step closer to this concept and showed his fans the possibilities of how the iconic battle royale title can be experienced in VR.
SypherPK plays Fortnite in VR
The famous American YouTuber Ali "SypherPK" Hassan has amassed a huge fanbase throughout his career as a streamer and content creator. In one of his recent videos, he experienced Fortnite in VR using an Oculus. VR, also known as Virtual Reality, can be experienced using a headset console, allowing players to experience games in a FPP (First-Person Perspective) mode while being fully immersed in-game.
Sypher played Fortnite in VR where he used a PlayStation controller, Gyro, and Flick Stick controls to his advantage. Although he initially found it extremely difficult, he still managed to get a Victory Royale. As soon as he was done with the match, he shifted to a fully VR game called Population: ONE.
Interestingly, other content creators such as NickEh30 have also tried their hand at Population: ONE using an Oculus headset. The game is basically a battle royale title, but is a more realistic experience given that it is set in the Metaverse.
Several other content creators have experienced this concept, which gives rise to the idea of the Metaverse. According to SypherPK and others who have experienced battle royale games in VR, they think it is very much a possibility for Epic Games to make a move to VR with Fortnite soon.
What if the Metaverse is introduced in Fortnite?
If the Metaverse is introduced into the game, it will be a revolutionary change within the gaming industry. A Metaverse in Fortnite would probably require different game modes with different specifications to play on and experience. Epic can either convert the Metaverse into a battle royale or create a completely new game structure to expand the idea towards this concept.
Undoubtedly, such an idea would have mixed reactions from the community, with some either really liking it or strongly against it. Regardless, the overall existence of this world would definitely be exciting and something to look forward to.
