Second Life gets a graphics and features overhaul

Hot on the heels of its tenth anniversary virtual life simulator Second Life has received a facelift in the form of new graphics and features. This includes streamlined chat tools, better lighting, and improved avatar loading speed. If only real life could be patched like that, eh? Check out the trailer after the break.

Perhaps one of the most interesting features is integration with Facebook. Users can now share in-game screenshots and accomplishments on the social network. On one hand that could be really annoying for everyone else on Facebook, but given the focus on Second Life being just that, an alternate life, it’s interesting to see how it might collide with the user’s ‘real life’ Facebook.

Thanks, Polygon.
