Crayta, a platform that allows people to create, share, and play their own games, will be coming to Facebook Gaming’s cloud-streaming service. This game-building platform, which is built on Unreal Engine 4, features a library of thousands of player-made games that users can browse, play, and even add to.
With Crayta now available on Facebook Gaming, players won’t have to download the game in order to access it. Moving forward, the free-to-play platform will be hosted on Facebook, so users will only need an FB account to play Crayta.
This is not the first time that Facebook has shown an interest in the gaming platform. Last year, Meta, Facebook’s parent organization, acquired Unit 2, the United Kingdom-based studio that created the Crayta platform.
“A lot of times today, people think about the metaverse as 3D experiences you can have in virtual and augmented reality, but I think what Crayta shows is that you can both build and enjoy these kind of experiences really easily on all kinds of 2D environments including just within the Facebook App on phones and on computers,” Mark Zuckerberg said in a video showing off Crayta.
Crayta is a video game that was released around the world on July 1st, 2020. It was created by the previously mentioned studio, Unit 2 Games Limited.
