Learn to build beautiful Virtual Reality experiences. This course, created in collaboration with Epic Games, teaches you everything you need to know to build your very own VR apps and games in the world class Unreal Engine.
Unreal is a massively powerful game engine that puts performance and graphics first. It includes industry-grade VR tools that power some of the best high-end experiences on the market such as Robo Recall. That’s why Unreal is the perfect tool to create your own VR experiences.
Virtual Reality is being used to develop apps and experiences for a broad range of industries beyond games. You can do Architectural Visualisation by walking around a building before it is built. You can sketch and sculpt car designs directly in 3D without a modeller. And of, course, you can play games in a completely different way.
But Unreal being as powerful as it is and VR, so new, it can be hard to know where to start. This course makes understanding Unreal VR super easy. Not only do we show you how to use the engine’s VR features, but we teach you the fundamental concepts of VR development. By teaching you the fundamentals, we will put you ahead in the rapidly developing VR space.
