Oculus VR has announced that it will be offering a free four-month Unity Pro trial license to developers bringing games to their Oculus Rift platform. Partnering with Unity Technologies, creator of the well-known Unity Engine, this allows them to gauge the power and tools that Unity Pro provides for developing VR games.
Brendan Iribe, CEO of Oculus VR, stated that, The Unity engine’s innovative design, ease of use, and flexibility have helped game developers of all skill levels develop some of the most unique games on the market.
“Like Unity, we share the desire to help developers create games unlike any other, and we look forward to seeing our combined technologies transformed into virtual reality.”
Dev kits for Oculus Rift will begin shipping to those backers who supported the initial Kickstarter campaign by end of March, while the Unity Pro extended trial license will be available via Oculus’s developer center in April.
