Epic Games have yet more big plans for the Games Developer Conference next week, having already confirmed that it will be revealing the release date for its in-VR editor for Unreal Engine 4. GDC will run from 14-18 March, 2016, and Epic Games are promising some interesting content.

The company has confirmed that it will be hosting VR demos from 16-18 March, 2016, at its Unreal Engine booth in San Francisco’s Moscone Center to showcase VR content that is completely brand new. Whilst details of this new content is scarce, Epic Games will also be bringing its popular Oculus Touch tech demo of Bullet Train to the event for attendees to try out. Bullet Train was introduced at the 2015 Oculus Connect 2 conference and uses controllers to allow players to realistically interact with the virtual reality game.

If this new content is anything like Bullet Train, then VR fans are sure to be in for a treat with whatever Epic Games unveil next week at GDC. Having traditionally partnered with Oculus in the past, it could be that Epic Games are expanding their support to more VR headsets.
