Crayta, a Roblox and Fortnite-like gaming platform, is officially available via Facebook. Meta’s new cloud-streamed game allows users to build and play games in real-time and collaborate with others. By sharing a simple link to a newly created game, players can have their friends join and play together.
The game platform is built on Unreal Engine 4, an open and advanced real-time 3D creation tool. Crayta also has a library of thousands of community-created games users can freely explore. Players can create the world and games as their imagination allows, which means the game offers a blank canvas for the creators to unleash their virtual dreams. The free-to-play game will be available to all Facebook users.
Meta’s team members revealed the game in a Facebook video. In the same video, Meta founder Mark Zuckerberg talked about how he likes the idea of designing a game within a game — and this is Crayta’s essential purpose. The 3-D game’s environment is high-quality, yet no complicated software is needed to run it; cloud infrastructure allows Facebook to host the world-building environment.
“Historically, if you wanted to have something like this run in this high quality of a 3D environment, that would be really hard to render in a browser or on phones, but being able to do it with cloud infrastructure and then send it down across the network after having already rendered it in the cloud is a pretty big advance,” Zuckerberg said.
“With our cloud-streaming tech, it’s really fast to build on both mobile and desktop even if you don’t have a powerful system,” he added.
Crayta, launched in 2020, was created by a Unit 2 video game developer and acquired by Meta last year. By announcing the launch of Crayta, Meta continues to develop Metaverse-related tools and features around its platforms.
