Meta and NBA partnership grows: 52 VR games and NBA-licensed Avatar skins in Meta Quest
Meta has expanded the scope of its partnership with the NBA and WNBA. The company announced in its blog post that it will launch more than 50 virtual reality (VR) games on Meta Quest. Meta plans to offer users 52 live NBA games.
Details of the games
Within the scope of these games, 180-degree monoscopic 5 virtual reality games will meet with users in Xtadium and Meta Horizon Worlds. In addition, WNBA, NBA G League and NBA 2K League games will also be offered throughout the season.
In addition to the games, users will have access to the most important parts, summaries and archive content of the games in Meta Horizon Worlds. Let’s also mention that users can access the content in question by visiting the NBA Arena in Meta Horizon Worlds starting today. In addition, users will be able to spend time with mini-games while supporting their favorite teams. It is stated that users with an NBA League Pass subscription will be able to access more content within the application in the future.
NBA licensed Avatar skins
In the meantime, it’s worth adding that Meta and the NBA have signed a new partnership to feature NBA licensed skins on Meta’s Avatar Store. Users will have the opportunity to experience these looks in the coming weeks. Skins from the Avatar Store can be showcased on Avatars on Facebook, Instagram, Messenger and Meta Quest.
At this point, let’s remind you that Mark Zuckerberg announced that they will open a special store for avatars called Avatars Store on Facebook, Instagram and Messenger with a post he shared on Facebook in June 2022. Users can purchase digital clothing from these stores to style their avatars.
If you remember, Avatars, which were released as part of the Meta application family, took place on WhatsApp in December 2022 . The company has not shared any information about the appearance in the Avatar Store on WhatsApp for now.
