When is Horizon Worlds coming to Australia?


Hi there,


do you know when Horizon Worlds will be open to the rest of the world (in particular Australia)?


I have sent my registration request and I am eager to start creating content!

They are lowering the age restriction from 18 to 13 and are planning on letting people connect to it with mobile phones and web browsers... but still no announcement on letting Aus or other countries in.

Hey hey, @Anonymous! We just wanted to hop on by to lend a hand with your Horizon Worlds showing as coming soon. We know how this can hider your VR experience, first we would like to make sure you meet all of the requirements listed below:

please give us a straight answer! This is appalling. All these customers bought the headset with the promise of meta horizons. We can't keep waiting. 😒😠

Australia is isolated within the World, Meta just want to make sure it’s replicated within their rollout plan it seems?

My Occulus is basically a brick. Useless. Not a day goes by I don’t regret purchasing it. 
What good is it when you Meta geo-blocks us out of Horizon Worlds??? 
Im donating my headset to the local rubbish dump 


META HORIZONS is probably dead or discontinued. 

Horizon Worlds is still up-and-running, might be more active now than in recent weeks due to the inclusion of PC joining the system. Now anyone can join in on the fun without owning a Quest device!

Horizon Worlds is only available in Canada, France, Iceland, Ireland, Spain, U.K. and U.S. at the moment.

In the time of your life, live - so that in that wondrous time you shall not add to the misery and sorrow of the world, but shall smile to the infinite delight and mystery of it.

P.S., I can beat you at One Piece TCG and Tekken

This is getting ridiculous, its been years, why are you locking Australia out of Horizom World Meta!!! 

To make matters worse, the Quest 3 "Events" app only allows you to join via Meta Worlds, so the Events on the Quest are pointless.

The "Venues" app doesn't seem to be available for AU anymore either.

Can Meta Quest Support please give us some insight into whether any of the Events will be accessible from Australia, and/or whether Meta Worlds will be available anytime soon? Considering how much Australian's are paying for these devices, it's very disappointing that a major feature of the Quest globally doesn't exist for us.
