Oculus Rift Teams Up with Unity

Oculus Rift and Unity have teamed up to give a four-month Unity Pro license trial to all developers who buy a dev kit for the anticipated VR headset device.

Unity Technologies Founder and CEO, David Helgason, said that “Unity provides game developers with amazing tools that bring joy to the process of creating games, while also lowering the financial and time barriers of high-end production.”

He added, “The next generation of video games will not only be found on consoles, but also on PCs, mobile devices and in the cloud though none of these platforms offer the ability to step into the experience. That is where the Oculus Rift comes in. We’re partnering with Oculus to give Unity developers the ability to create the most immersive gaming experiences yet.”

Of note – The Kickstarter-funded Oculus device was recently made compatible with Valve’s Team Fortress 2.
