Check out Epic's new Bullet Train Rift demo

September 24, 2015 | By Christian Nutt

This morning at Oculus Connect, Epic's Tim Sweeney took to the stage to showcase the company's newest demo -- playable at Oculus Connect -- which showcases the latest in Rift technology.

You can watch a 2D trailer for the demo above.

Notably, it offers support for the Oculus Touch motion controller system. Maybe more interesting to game developers, however, is that the player moves through the world via teleportation -- point, click, and move. This is an increasingly popular workaround for traversal in current-generation VR games, and one that Oculus VR CEO Brendan Iribe lauded.

Traditional motion "wasn't quite as comfortable as we were hoping, especially for people like me," he said, joking about the fact that he's notoriously prone to motion sickness in VR. Conversely, the teleportation system is great for avoiding motion sickness in players, he said.
