Introducing Desktop Mode: a new way to watch VR content in Vreal

Hello friends,We’re starting off 2019 with a big update: We’re introducing a new way for everyone to watch their favorite VR content creators in Vreal – no VR headset required! (WHAAAAT?)

That’s right; we’re introducing Desktop mode, which gives you an immersive, two-dimensional look into the VR content made in Vreal. Using the WASD keys and your mouse, you can move around anywhere within the game, giving you full control of where you want to watch from; your very own spectator mode for VR game content.

The viewing experience is cross-platform; so you can watch with friends in Desktop mode or in VR from your own headset.

Here’s a dev update video that explains all the things:

To try it out, Download Vreal on Steam, select play, and select “Play Vreal in desktop mode.”

BTW, recording VR content in VR requires a VR headset. If you’re a content creator passionate about building the VR community, get in touch with us:

Our supported VR games now include Gunheart, Tilt Brush, GORN, Blocks, Fantastic Contraption, SUPERHOT VR, and Hot dogs, Horseshoes, & Hand Grenades. We’re adding support for more games throughout Early Access.

In the meantime, try us out, let us know what you think, and we can’t wait to see you in Vreal!
