Epic Games Preps ‘Cool Surprises’ for Unreal Engine 4
Gabriel Roşu / 3 years ago
Epic Games’ Unreal Engine 4 received a lot of appreciation when it was first released, having its presence grow as it entered the VR community recently. The company has added support for Oculus Rift a few months ago, followed by the more recent Project Morpheus VR headset integration. The company has also stated that it will provide constant updates to the tool set and will improve support regularly
However, nobody seems to know what will happen later on. The question arose when the developer stated that some ‘cool surprises’ are planned in the following months. Nick Whiting, Lead Engine Programmer, revealed that the company has something special prepared in the future, but it seems his statement was vague. He has emphasized that some “cool suprirses in the coming months in the VR scene.”
Looking at the company’s announcements, Epic Games will be releasing the Couch Knight demo next month at the same time as Oculus Rift launches its second development kit, namely the DK2. This could mean that Epic Games would release a fully fledged video game with support for both Oculus Rift and Project Morpheus. On the other hand, Epic Games might use the timing in order to tease the development tools at hand. Nevertheless, whatever it might relate to, it will most certainly be ‘Epic’.
