Mark Zuckerberg’s unveiling of the free Horizon Worlds metaverse game for the Spanish and French territories was met with ridicule.
The in-game screenshot was shared by Zuckerberg himself on Facebook.
The ghastly image depicts Zuckerberg’s dead-eyed avatar staring into the void in front of a miniature Eiffel Tower and Barcelona’s Tibidabo Cathedral.
Twitterati soon pounced on the opportunity to roast the Meta founder for the sub-par experience.
Users were quick to compare how barren Zuckerberg’s metaverse offering looks compared to two-decade old alternatives such as Second Life.
