Epic Games To Bring Robo Recall to ECGC

This year with be the ninth year of the East Coast Game Conference, also known as ECGC. In 2016 the conference introduced a new programme track for virtual reality (VR), along with a specific ‘VR Villiage’ area for VR technology on the Expo floor. The VR village is returning in 2017, and Epic Games will be there.

Epic Games will be hosting no less than three stations where attendees will be able to try robot-smashing shooter Robo Recall, which came out for the Oculus Touch earlier this year.

The studio will also be bringing two Unreal Engine 4 demo stations along with members of the support and development team who will be available to answer questions.
