SteamVR Home is getting yet more fun stuff to play with this week.
Valve just introduced another update for its VR hub world which brings in new locations and assets to decorate them with. You can now explore a supervillain’s lair with friends, solving puzzles and unlocking secret rooms and new collectibles from one of the developer’s most beloved games, Team Fortress 2. Valve has also changed up the Summit Pavilion location with some new additions that allow you to customize how your personal space looks even further.
Expanding on that customization even further, Valve is also introducing asset packs. These allow creators to share assets they’ve made like models and textures with other creators so they can expand their own resources for making environments.
Elsewhere there are some small adjustments, like a reorganized community wall, a new category for free VR apps and resizable panels.
It’s interesting to see Valve expand SteamVR Home with this strand of novel, adventurous content to expand what friends can do while Oculus doubles down on expanding customization within its smaller Oculus Home spaces. We’re fans of both approaches, but we certainly like how Valve’s efforts including features like SteamVR Collectibles cater to the gamers in all of us.
