VR Game Design | Not so far away

The Unreal engine is jumping on the VR train much faster than other places. The engine will soon release VR content creation tools with their software. While this may sound strange, imagine being able to use your hands and arms to pick up, arrange and move the contents of your game around.

Epic Games’ Tim Sweeney and Mike Fricker showing this new way of content creation, using a HTC Vive and an Oculus Touch, and basically building VR in VR. The UI interaction in the clip is pretty impressive.

Imagine being able to stand where the player going to be while you can physically look around and make the chanes to your surrounding. Soon this wont just be a dream, but a reality.

More details, including a release date, are coming on March 16, 2016 during this year’s GDC.
