Develop for Gear VR or Oculus Rift using Unreal Engine’s built in support whether you’re a beginner or advanced developer. Unreal provides an easy-to-use visual workflow with rapid iteration across platforms. Gear VR builds can be updated in seconds over Wi-Fi, thanks to Unreal’s caching technologies.
Unreal apps running on the Oculus platform automatically apply stereoscopic rendering to the main camera while providing low-latency head tracking for Rift or Gear VR. Use Blueprint nodes for accessing key Oculus features or C++ for more specialized needs.
If you’re a newer VR developer, Unreal offers high-fidelity visuals with minimal configuration, with the ability to fully customize the rendering at a source code level. More advanced developers may be interested in the open source Oculus Unreal Renderer, a fast, single-pass forward renderer optimized for the unique demands of VR.
Accurate distance cues, room modeling, and other features are available with plugins for Wwise and FMOD—both proven solutions.
Take advantage of our Platform SDK, enabling built-in features including VoIP and P2P support, matchmaking, friends list, and rooms. Allow players to share the fun through leaderboards and achievements. Quickly implement entitlement checks using a single Blueprint node.
