Hi all,

If you've found this thread, you're probably looking to get your hands on an Oculus Orb. This is a common request so we created this space to explain a few things. Before you fill in your details below, have a read of the following:

Why can't everyone have the Orb yet?


The reason the Orb isn't yet available to everyone in game is it's not perfectly stable. It could potentially cause some odd behaviour in-game and even crash a player's client. This is why we need to be selective and keep a close eye on how many exist in game.

Why is the Orb unstable?


The engine team added custom engine features to the game for DMM spectating, intending only that staff would ever do this. This is what the Orb uses to function. That team would be needed to review and adjust the features in question to ensure they're safe for general public use.

While making the Orb available to everyone is our eventual goal, other things we want to do that also require engine work are taking priority. These include an improved clan system and group content features as well as continually making changes to mobile.

So who is allowed to have the Orb right now?


With everything said above in mind, we still recognise the Orb is a very useful tool for creating video content. So, as a compromise, we're willing to give some Orbs to content creators that will benefit the most from having one, as long as they bear in mind it may behave unexpectedly and the aforementioned risks are understood.

This allows us to help content creators while controlling the potential problems the Orb may cause before it's ready to be made accessible to all players.

If you are interested in having an Orb of Oculus, please fill in your details below (posts will be automatically hidden):

1. Display name
2. Channel name
3. Number of followers/subscribers on main content channel

If you meet our criteria of eligibility, we'll reach out to you individually (either in game or via a player inbox message) and give you an Orb. If you don't hear from us, it's best to assume you haven't been selected.

We also reserve the right to take Orbs away from players who are no longer using them or for any other reason. This will give other active content creators the chance to use one while controlling how many are in game.

Thanks for reading!
