Storytelling is set to be a huge focus for virtual reality (VR) technology in the coming year and just about everyone working in the industry knows it. That includes Epic Games, the popular developer behind the Unreal Engine 4 toolset. Today at the company’s ‘The State of Unreal’ talk at the 2015 Game Developers Conference (GDC) CEO Tim Sweeney announce a new VR demo from visual effects studio Weta Digital that focuses on storytelling in the medium.
Few details were announced for the piece, which is called A Thief in the Shadows. Sweeney did share an image of a dragon that can be seen below, but teased that GDC attendees would have to stop by either the company’s booth or the Oculus VR booth to see it for themselves running on the Oculus Rift head-mounted display (HMD).
VRFocus is at GDC this week to bring you the latest on VR technology.
