Virtual Reality & Next-Gen Engines

Virtual Reality Helmet drawing

At last year’s latest Game Developers Conference (GDC) Sony Computer Entertainment (SCE) was in talks about developing virtual reality video games. Now the company has scheduled another virtual reality (VR) session, talking about next-generation video game engines and more.

The talk titled ‘Virtual Reality and Getting the Best from your Next-Gen Engine’ hosted by SCE Immersive Technology Group technical director Ian Bickerstaff and Research and Development senior engineer Patrick Connor. They will discuss the importance of creating a video game engine that can sustain VR development, and its need for higher frame rates and low-latency. Ian Bickerstaff and Patrick Connor will be offering advice on how to deliver high quality VR experiences, focusing on Project Morpheus VR head-mounted display (HMD) for PlayStation 4. It was also stressed how these techniques discussed will be applicable to standard video game development as well as VR development.

It maybe for a while until we all have a VR-HMD part of our gaming experience but at such a time when third-party game developers have further acquainted themselves with the new tech we won’t be playing Grand Theft Auto V, Assassin’s Creed, or Call of Duty VR editions soon.

Crystal Rift - Virtual Reality Gaming - Oculus

Crystal Rift is a VR Gaming title for Windows PC, Mac OS X, and Linux currently being developed as a first person dungeon crawler being made available for the Oculus Rift virtual reality device coming soon to consumers (and currently in the hands of developers both indie and major worldwide). More information is expected to release soon from Facebook / Oculus about their future vision, but all things appear to be running smoothly for both this device in the PC Gaming world as well as the PlayStation Morpheus for Sony PS4. In this particular video, an indie developer is speaking about his vision for Crystal Rift, a game that’s showing some potential but doesn’t have a clear roadmap just yet. Take a look and see it for yourself. For now, we will simply say that potential exists.

Virtual Reality Game Ether One Confirmed for PS4 Morpheus, Being Developed in Unreal Engine 4

Ether One

Ether One is all about being John Malkovich, well sort of. Players enter the minds of the deranged and attempt to fix their outlook on reality, heal their mental conditions, and restore peace by experiencing the storm of their mind’s eye in a first person encounter representing this metaphysical space.

Once again Unreal Engine 4 makes it possible for games to more easily bring their titles to next-gen. The Oculus Rift / PC Game Ether One was announced to be in development for PlayStation 4 today via the official development studio behind the game who said that this title will “not be on all of them”  meaning there are currently no plans to make this a 5 console game like Battlefield for example (which doesn’t always go well dev-wise).

The PlayStation Morpheus device is a virtual reality headset formally announced by Sony a few times here and there including at E3 2014. For now it seems the focus of Morpheus is to gather developers and prepare releases, with a full blown sales campaign being pushed to a later date when the public is ready see the products that will drive next-gen users into the Virtual Reality (VR Gaming) spectrum.
