Google have announced that developers itching to get started on building Android VR games using the Unity game engine can do so right now using a Daydream plugin.

Unity is the most popular game engine for mobile game development, so it makes sense that the company would be on board from the beginning of Google’s new push into the immersive technology space. Today, it was confirmed that, along with Epic Games’ Unreal Engine, Unity developers can build for Daydream, Google’s new platform for Android VR development, and they can do it right now.

Initially, Unity support for Daydream will be available via a plugin, with native support arriving some time in the Summer. The engine will of course allow developers to access the powerful yet lightweight Vulkan graphics API, the impressive virtual reality results of which you can see below in Epic’s recently released tech demo video.

    I was so confused by the article being Unity specific and then the video being UE4 specific. But the news that both engines are getting involved with it is verrry interesting.
