E254: believe the hype – how Oculus Rift changes everything

E254

The new Edge is available now in print and on iPad.

On the cover is a story we first covered way back in issue 3 – the rise of virtual reality. After twenty years of VR misfires, Oculus VR’s creator Palmer Luckey explains why Rift changes everything and how it opens the door to a world of new design challenges.

Elsewhere, we look at development around the world and the games coming from the unlikeliest of places, how gamejams have become a spawning ground for prototypes, and investigate Wii U’s prospects in the absence of third party support and Nintendo’s essential first-party exclusives.

There’s also exclusive Grand Theft Auto V artwork and screenshots to be found within our in-depth analysis of Rockstar’s next title, and we also take an early look at Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 and Transistor.
