BigScreen Reveals A New Look For You And The App In ‘The Avatar Update’

Leaving Early Access on Oculus Home, remaining in Beta.

BigScreen Inc’s popular eponymous virtual reality (VR) application BigScreen for HTC Vive, Oculus Rift and Windows Mixed Reality has received a new update.

The free to download app, currently undergoing a long Beta period has just announced ‘The Avatar Update’ which, as the name suggests, primarily focuses on developing the ways users can represent themselves whilst using the app. With a selection torso designs for male and female body types, as well as one which is specifically neutral. All off which can be highly customised with whatever look you choose from all manner of clothing options.

This is not the only change however as the developers have also confirming an overhaul to the ways the app’s design is applied. Making interaction via controller, both with new and existing menus and the world around you, far more natural and intuitive. Feedback from users has also led the team to identify a number of bugs, specifically ones causing instability within the app for those users utilizing AMD graphics cards.

Whilst the app is still not ready to shed its Beta label, the update is significant enough that BigScreen has also announced that it will, at least, be moving out of Early Access on Oculus Home. Further updates are of course planned and VRFocus will bring you news about these as they are revealed.  You can check out the Avatar update in action with the video below.
