Oculus VR revealed a host of new experiences for its Oculus Rift virtual reality (VR) head-mounted display (HMD) at its Oculus Connect 2 developer conference today. While plenty of third-party software was present, the company also had a few of its own titles to debut. Among these was Oculus Medium, a brand new VR creative tool that immediately drew comparisons to Google’s Tiltbrush, which is running on the HTC Vive. Following the piece’s announcement at a keynote talk, some new details about the experience have been revealed.
The most important aspect to note is that Oculus Medium is a multiplayer title. In fact attendees of Oculus Connect 2 are able to sample a 2 player demo. The software uses the Oculus Touch controllers to allow players to mould new items and objects within VR. In a trailer seen below, artists easily make some new sculptures out of virtual clay.
Oculus Medium will be included with the Oculus Touch itself when it ships in the second quarter of next year. VRFocus will continue to follow the title closely, reporting back with the latest updates on its progress.
