Learn the ins and outs of creating virtual reality experiences for the first time, in a beginner-friendly workshop.

In this workshop, we’ll walk you through the process of:

  • Getting Unreal Engine 4.20 up and running.
  • How to create an Unreal project, and setting it up for VR.
  • Walkthroughs of Unreal’s UI.
  • Getting the Editor to run on low-end machines.
  • Introduce Unreal’s visual scripting: Blueprints.
  • Overview of the gameplay framework.
  • Setting up a level from scratch.

Plus a bunch of documentation, templates, and other resources for ease of use and more info!

Students are not required to bring hardware for the event to attend.

However, if following along, a laptop that has Unreal 4.20 pre-installed is required (the installation can take very long, please do this ahead of time).

Unreal Engine 4.20 is obtained from Epic Game’s Launcher:
