"Great course! It really goes into the core of many of the most important aspects of VR as it currently stands. I will strongly recommend it to anyone interested in VR development."

- Alex Andersson

Learn to build beautiful Virtual Reality experiences. This course 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.

Looking for other Unreal content such as multiplayer, or a beginner course? Check out our other Unreal Engine tutorials.

This course is aimed at beginner to intermediate Unreal users with some knowledge of C++. Not too confident? Don't worry, the course will take you through everything step by step and give you plenty of practice to build up that confidence with coding.

Note: access to this course comes with an optional, free community site where you can share games and 3D models, as well as connect with other students.

Become a pioneer of VR and create the future!

Sam Pattuzzi

Sam wrote his first game at 14, hacking together little games in Macromedia Flash during his summer holidays. Not long after, he taught himself C++ followed by Python and web programming. He was hooked.

In 2010 he went to study Computer Science at the University of Cambridge and he's been in Cambridge ever since. That is where he caught the entrepreneurial bug and realised he wouldn't want a traditional job for long. So after a few years working in various jobs to get experience, he quit and started burning through his savings looking for his calling.

At the end of 2015, he was coaching some friends to improve their programming skills. Realising how much he loved it, he started creating online courses and reached out to Ben for help. Fast forward and he's part of the GameDev.tv gang and gets to hang out with our awesome community!
