Epic Games’ Bullet Train is a ground breaking first-person shooter (FPS) technical demonstration of the Oculus Rift and forthcoming motion-controller, Oculus Touch. Originally revealed at Oculus Connect 2, Hollywood, last year, Bullet Train has been a hugely popular title at many events throughout North America. For those who haven’t yet had the chance to get hands-on, Oculus VR are offering you the chance to do so at San Diego Comic Con this weekend.
Bullet Train is a single-player experience in which the player faces off against dozens of enemies upon arrival at a train station. Instead of using traditional locomotion-based movement, Epic Games’ virtual reality (VR) team designed a teleportation system that allows the player to transport themselves across the environment at the press of a button. Bullet Train is all about the spectacle, so ensuring that the player is always in the middle of the action was important to Epic Games; this teleportation system allows them to do just that.
VRFocus has been hands-on with the experience a number of times, stating in a hands-on preview of Bullet Train: “Running at a smooth 90 frames-per-second and with remarkably impressive visual design (including a number of grin-inducing easter eggs and a small amount of destructible scenery) Epic Games has raised the bar for expectations of what a VR videogame could be.”
The experience will be playable at San Diego Comic Con on 23rd – 24th July 2016, courtesy of Oculus VR and AMD, at Nerd Machine HQ, The New Children’s Museum, 200 W Island Ave, San Diego. VRFocus will keep you updated with all the latest on Epic Games’ Bullet Train and public events held by Oculus VR and AMD.
