A new virtual environment is available for Oculus Quest users, and it might just be the best one yet.
‘Cyber City’ is the sixth and most recent virtual environment available to the Oculus Quest, joining the standard Quest dome, the classic home, the winter lodge, the space station, and the passthrough environments.
It depicts a futuristic, cyberpunk city with some fantastic animations and ambient noises. You can check out the footage below.
As you can see in the footage, this new environment has a number of small animations that work to great effect.
Using animations in a Quest environment is not unique here, but in the cyber city, it gives everything a bit more life and immersion than some of the other environments on offer.
There’s a train that zooms along a suspended track in the distance, plus some flying cars navigating the space below it. In the room itself there’s a rotating fan, accompanied by some subtle-yet-effective ambient noises coming from the city.
The visuals are much more striking than some of the existing environments, and it feels much more alive and pleasant than the space station environment that preceded it. It goes without saying, but a cyber city is also just an incredibly apt setting for the main menu of a VR headset.
Cyber city should be available as an environment option for Quest users who are using the latest v20 software. You can switch to it by going to Settings and then to Virtual Environments, where you can download and enable it.

What is 360 VR Video?
360 video is a video that is recorded in all directions at the same time with multiple cameras. The videos are stitched together either internally in the camera or externally using special software.
It then forms one spherical video that is controlled by the viewer, enabling them to look up, down, right or left at their discretion.
Is 360 Video Virtual Reality?
I want you to be the judge.
