Latest news

    Ever wished you could jet set around the world fast enough to ring in the New Year at a party in every timezone? Well that might not be quite possible, but VRChat is offering something close.

    VRChat, a social VR experience supporting major PC VR headsets via Steam, is celebrating New Year’s Eve virtually in every timezone, every hour, on the hour. Fireworks included.

    2017 has been a good year for VRChat. The app, which lets users don completely custom avatars and build their own virtual environments, has seen strong growth toward the end of the year, setting successive records for concurrent users; the most recent record was set just yesterday at some 6,000 players, according to SteamSpy data. Earlier this year the company also raised a $4 million Series A investment led by HTC.
