UE4 Developers Can Now Create Content for Magic Leap One

Cary, NC (March 19, 2018) — Epic Games has released Unreal Engine 4 support for the Magic Leap One: Creator Edition, a software toolkit for the early development of experiences for Magic Leap’s personal spatial computing platform, as part of a larger partnership between the two companies.

Magic Leap today took the next step toward launch, previewing their platform and its development resources. Individuals and teams can sign up for the first look at its Creator Portal, access to the Lumin SDK and to receive updates on the Magic Leap ecosystem.

Leading creators of world-class content are already using Unreal Engine 4 for Magic Leap One. In addition to Epic, studios using Unreal to develop content for Magic Leap include Framestore, ILMxLAB, Schell Games and Peter Jackson’s Wingnut AR.

Alongside development support for the Magic Leap One hardware, Epic has released a collection of resources including Unreal Engine 4 documentation, a robust sample project demonstrating Magic Leap One’s unique features and a custom Unreal Editor for creating content using the Lumin SDK.

Developers can access these resources via the preview documentation and obtain the custom toolset on the Unreal Engine tab of the Epic Games launcher, or build from the Unreal Editor source on GitHub. Full support for Magic Leap One will ship in Unreal Engine 4.20, due for release this summer.

Unreal Engine 4 support for Magic Leap One includes the following features:

  • Head tracking
  • Eye tracking
  • Gesture and hand tracking
  • Room scanning and meshing
  • Spatialized audio
  • Microphone input
  • 6DOF hand controller (Totem) tracking
  • Vulkan and OpenGL support
  • Use of Unreal Engine 4’s desktop and mobile forward rendering paths

“Unreal has long been the go-to development engine for some of the top game studios in the world. This partnership with Epic will enable more creators to join Magic Leap on its journey, creating content for the next computing platform,” commented Rio Caraeff, Chief Content Officer at Magic Leap.

“Magic Leap has truly created something magical in this combination of hardware breakthroughs and software innovations, which represents a giant leap towards the coming spatial computing revolution,” said Epic Games Founder and CEO Tim Sweeney.
