With so many virtual reality devices on the way, some consumers may be overwhelmed by what they have to offer and which one is the best way to go when it comes to a purchase.
Fortunately, Epic Games is here to help. The development studio that worked on such franchises as Gears of War and Unreal Tournament has announced a new documentary series called Sense of Presence, per this report from VentureBeat.
With this mini-series, the company will delve deep into the world of virtual reality, complete with explanation of terms and just what it could do for the market a market, by the way, that’s estimated to reach a whopping $150 billion by 2020, featuring headsets from the likes of HTC, Samsung, and Facebook’s Oculus technology.
The series will feature interviews with a number of key features in the world of virtual reality, including Oculus co-founder Palmer Luckey, as well as Epic chief technology officer Kim Libreri, 3D Live chief executive officer Nathan Huber, and Magnopus co-founder Alex Hennig.
The first episode of Sense of Presence while a bit short at just under five minutes, provides a reasonable explanation as to what virtual reality is, as well as what it could do for the market in terms of video games and other experiences. This includes glimpses of forthcoming titles like The Solus Project.
With future chapters in the series, Epic hopes to explain further details on the world of virtual reality, as well as why consumers should be excited for the likes of such technology as the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive.
No word yet on what Epic Games could be working on through the VR front, but considering its impressive Unreal Engine 4 technology, big things are certainly on the horizon. Next year is going to be quite the interesting one as these VR headsets make their way to retailers.
