At Oculus Connect 3 Epic Games announced its next VR-game, which features explosive gameplay, UE4 and crazy robots.
Epic Games did a surprise announcement during Oculus Connect 3 even – a new VR game called Robo Recall. It’s an action-packed virtual reality first-person shooter. More on the arcade side with in-depth scoring system and clever use of Oculus Touch controllers. Players shoot rogue robots and unlock various weapons. It doesn’t take a scientist to see that some of Robo Recall’s features are based on Bullet Train (the other UE4 VR demo). The new game will be published in early 2017. The best thing is that it will be free for all Oculus Rift owners! Free is good. The game is powered by Unreal Engine 4.
VR provides a level of immersion like never before. Our goal with Robo Recall is to take advantage of these new tools to provide an over-the-top, memorable and replayable experience that defines a new generation of shooter. Robo Recall builds on what we learned from Bullet Train in regard to creating an exciting, visceral and comfortable VR experience. We’ve refined and expanded our Touch integration and interaction mechanics, added free movement teleportation that allows the player to explore the environments and made significant improvements to our art quality.
The game looks incredibly fun. It’s got humor, fast-paced action, very cool character design and a bunch of exotic weapons. Can’t wait to play it!
