Epic Games Announces Plans for Oculus Connect 4
This October, Oculus is bringing back Oculus Connect, its annual VR conference held at the San Jose McEnery Convention Center. Developers can expect the latest news and insights surrounding all things Oculus while catching talks and connecting with industry professionals.
Epic Games team is headed to Oculus Connect 4 to deliver talks, answer technical questions and meet up with the VR community. Epic Games Technical Director of AR and VR Nick Whiting will present “The Road to Release: A Technical Postmortem for Robo Recall” to share how we achieved high-end visuals at 90fps for VR. Robo Recall is Epic’s first-person action game which recently became the first title to break 3000 ratings on the Oculus Store.
Whiting, along with other Robo Recall team members such as Lead Designer Nick Donaldson and Art Director Jerome Platteaux, will be available for a few interview slots for media who are interested in talking about lessons learned and where we’re focusing efforts in VR/AR these days, so if you’ll be there and would like to catch up, feel free to drop us a note.
Epic is also scheduling Unreal Engine office hours to help developers overcome any technical hurdles. To schedule time to meet with the Unreal Engine team, folks can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the name of their project and technical concern.
