Oculus is Making Home into a Customizable Social Living Room, Coming to Rift in December

Oculus Home is getting a full overhaul in the new Rift Core 2.0 update coming this December, which promises to add a level of user customization that will let you create a unique, persistent space that you can invite friends to.

Since the beta version of Home was unveiled alongside the consumer Oculus Rift, the space has been a static launchpad for games and experiences. Now the company says it’s “leveling” the current version of Home to make way for a new customizable Home that promises to reflect your own personality and sense of style. The new Home space includes toys, furniture, artwork, and a place to put your achievements on display.

Home is also being changed into a social area that remains persistent, meaning you can share your space with a friend and visit their own. The company says they’ll be opening “new possibilities for community and co-presence, letting you hang out, play, and explore with others.”

The beta for Rift Core 2.0 update will come free to users in December.
