An Early Glimpse of Unreal Engine's VR Editor

The Unreal Engine will soon get VR content creation tools, and while it might sound an impractical feature at first, the live demo Epic Games shared looks quite interesting.

Here’s 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.

It sounds like something everyone would try once but never use again, but being in the space that the player will occupy in the finished product, could be a great way to measure scale and positioning.


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

Man, I really want Vive to hurry up and drop a price announcement. I had it in my head they would be more expensive than OcR, and they were thinking the would too, but that was before when Lucky had most thinking OcR was dropping in the $300-$400 range. If the Vive is anywhere near analgous in price to the Rift I will be preordering immediately. I know being a first gen early adopter is the worst when it comes to value prop. but this stuff is so amazing I need it in my life
