Passage World Builder: Drag-and-Drop 3D Worlds

August 1, 2023

Since BattleZone was introduced in 1980, creating 3D worlds has been one of the world’s fastest growing industries.

But just as social media brought publishing to everyone and AI is making content creation more accessible, 3D worldbuilding is about to become so easy anyone can do it.

Passage is weaving these technologies together, making it easier than ever to produce high-quality, interactive virtual worlds.

What is the Passage World Builder?

Passage offers a set of powerful, flexible tools that allow you to create immersive virtual worlds right in your browser.

What’s more: these tools are free to use.

Creating 3D assets and assembling them into beautiful worlds has never been easier or more accessible. It’s no longer just for experienced dev teams or 3D pros.

Here’s why: 

  • Templates: Start with one of our template worlds, and jump in to begin immediately customizing your world.
  • Drag & Drop Editor: Pick which elements you like, and assemble them like Legos with a simple drag-and-drop editor. 
  • Marketplace: Browse for more 3D assets made by Passage and others, with both free and paid options. Find everything from character animations to niche furniture.
  • AI Integration: You’ve already seen the image landscape changed by Midjourney and Stable Diffusion. Now, Sortium’s AI technology will give you infinite ways to customize your 3D assets, from retexturing to generating totally new assets.
  • Unreal Engine: Still want to get your hands dirty and design your world from scratch? You’ve got the full power of Unreal Engine 5 to build with.

While crafting 3D worlds is more accessible than ever, there will always be a place for the 3D asset and animation specialists on Passage—including our marketplace, where you can sell your creations to world builders. 

Creating Interactive Spaces

Interactivity is at the heart of Passage.

Your Passage can have any degree of interactive elements, from game mechanics to ticketing systems and revenue-generating ads.

The best part? 

Anyone can add custom functionality to their world with plugins from our marketplace.

Imagine how much more engaging our digital experiences would be if they were interactive.

  • Streamers can stream right from inside their Passage, with audience members by their side
  • Educators can illustrate their concepts with activities and 3D models
  • Conferences can offer better networking, with organic conversations and separate spaces instead of squeezing everyone into a big 2D webinar
  • Activations and product launches can take the memorable experiences created for trade shows or public displays and have everyone, globally, participate
  • Artists can have dedicated event spaces with complete customization, as well as unique spaces for their most dedicated supporters to enjoy

Who is Passage for?

If you’re looking for better ways to engage and interact with your fans, followers, customers, or users—Passage is for you.

  • Creators & Artists: Fans are dying to get closer to the creators they love, but building out new opportunities and experiences takes time and money. With Passage, you can build a totally new world (and product) that connects to everything else you're creating.
  • Educators & Coaches: Private courses, paid coaching, or even sales calls can happen in a high-end virtual format in Passage. 
  • Product Teams: Level-up product launches, game launches, movie releases, and crowd-funding campaigns with an immersive, interactive experience.
  • Games: Passage opens up new opportunities for gaming communities, like Strange Clan, an Action RPG leveraging Passage to implement unique social features.

And this is just scratching the surface. It’s never been easier to create a better online space for your community.
