Cheetos Unveils Neighborhood In Horizon Worlds


Players are challenged to complete tasks around Chesterville, with some mischievous tools, to help them earn points on their “mischief meter.”

Chester Cheetah and Cheetos are taking their antics to virtual reality this Halloween. Cheetos unveiled Chesterville, a new, digital suburban neighborhood. Chesterville is the first venture into virtual reality for both Cheetos and the iconic Frito-Lay snack portfolio.

Set inside Meta Horizon Worlds, Chesterville is a mischief-maker’s dream: a place to embrace their inner Chester Cheetah, ditch the standard trick-or-treating and stir up some Halloween mischief. 

“As a culture-first brand committed to innovative consumer experiences, Cheetos is proud to lead Frito-Lay into the metaverse,” said Stacy Taffet, senior vice president of marketing for Frito-Lay. “This is a significant moment for both the brand and the portfolio as we broaden the ways we engage with fans, inviting them to experience Cheetos in an entirely new way. We can’t wait to welcome consumers into Chester’s virtual domain that brings his personality and Cheetos’ brand ethos to life.”

The goal is to gain access to the spooky mansion that looms atop Cheetos Hill. Once inside the mansion, fans get to unlock the most intriguing part of Chesterville: a chance to vote for their favorite “ghost of Cheetos’ past” and help bring a no-longer-available flavor back to life in the real world. Fans will choose from one of three favorite flavors to resurrect for a limited run: Cheetos Flamin’ Hot Chipotle Ranch, Cheetos Flamin’ Hot Pepper Puffs, or Cheetos Nashville Hot snacks.

Cheetos lovers outside the digital realm won’t be left out of the fun. Launching alongside Chesterville, Cheetos is calling on fans to share their flavor pick at beginning October 23, 2022 through November 2, 2022. Cheetos will announce the winning flavor on social media before it reappears in the real world in early 2023, for a limited time to those who participate.

Cheetos’ Mischief Makers aren’t the only way to cause mischief in Chesterville. Users can unlock Cheetle Codes from Cheetos’ social media to discover more ways to help them advance in the game.

Meta Horizon Worlds is a free social experience that allows people to explore, play and connect in new and extraordinary ways with immersive VR. Users can discover new places with friends, compete in action-packed games and interactive experiences and design worlds of their own or be inspired by others.

“Forward-thinking brands are beginning to build immersive experiences and we’re thrilled that Cheetos is leading the pack with their launch of Chesterville, their first-ever virtual reality experience in Meta Horizon Worlds,” said Nada Stirratt, Vice President, Global Business Group at Meta. “It’s exciting to see such an iconic brand use our platforms to experiment and connect with consumers in new, innovative ways. We can’t wait to see how users everywhere embrace their inner Chester Cheetah this Halloween and beyond.”
