Firms expand partnership to encourage virtual reality game development

Unity reveals new dedicated Oculus add-ons

Unity has revealed new dedicated Oculus add-ons for both the free and Pro Versions of the Unity engine.

Available at no extra cost to developers, the add-on includes stereo imaging optimisations, 3D audio support, improved Unity editor integration and direct publishing to Oculus.

The Rift has also been included in the Unity development and debugging workflow, while Oculus-specific APis have been integrated with the engine.

The announcement is part of an expanded partnership between the two firms to encourage virtual reality game development.

"There are so many incredible VR projects on Unity, and this partnership will make it even easier to build more great experiences for the Oculus platform," said Oculus CEO Brendan Iribe.

"We’re thrilled to be working with Unity to put world-class tools in the hands of developers."
