Showdown Cinematic VR Experience Released for Free!

By Chance Ivey

Our premier VR experience takes you through a cinematic, bullet-time inspired action scene. Showdown took Oculus Connect, GDC and SIGGRAPH by storm, and now you can download it for free, including its entire Unreal Engine 4-based content library!

The interactive demo is compatible with Oculus DK2 and up, Sony PlayStation Morpheus and HTC Vive SteamVR.

The project and all assets are available for download immediately through the Learn tab on the Epic Games launcher.  

For insider details on the development and optimization of Showdown, see Voices of VR Podcast #169 and “Optimizing ‘Showdown’ for 90 FPS” on Road to VR.
