Today Oculus has held its long awaited keynote speech at the annual Oculus Connect 3 conference in California. There’s been some big news from the company as well as developers working on projects for Oculus Rift and Oculus Touch. One of those was Epic Games with the announcement that the studio would finally be releasing its first fully fledged virtual reality (VR) title, Robo Recall. VRFocus sat down with Epic Games to discuss Robo Recall (you can read our preview here) and how the title came to be.
Robo Recall is a first-person shooter (FPS) set in a world where automated robots to help assist humans in their daily lives are commonplace. But naturally they’ve all gone rogue and its up to players to shoot them to pieces.
The videogame is being made to support the Oculus Touch motion controllers which are a highlight of Oculus Connect 3, with the title scheduled to launch in early 2017. And for Oculus Rift owners it’ll be completely free.
So VRFocus took some time out to talk to Epic Games about Robo Recall and find out what it’s all about. In the interview Epic Games trace the roots of the videogame and how tech demo Bullet Train – which was showcased at last years Oculus Connect 2 – helped in the creation of this new project. The full interview can be watched below and VRFocus will keep you updated with all the latest details on Robo Recall.
