    Valve is releasing SteamVR (the software side) updates like crazy at the moment. New update every few days. Just yesterday, they added full Linux 64-bit support.

        So far unreal's oculus rift support is not for linux:
        https://github.com/EpicGames/UnrealE...usRift.uplugin
        (Someone from the community actually has enabled linux support and looking at the commits it's actually very little work, that both epic and oculus didn't want to do: https://github.com/3dluvr/UnrealEngi.../4.7-linux-ovr)

        So far there is no oculus rift unity plugin for linux, supposedly they'll release it with the next SDK release (the last one was over a month ago). https://forums.oculus.com/viewtopic....art=60#p258877


        Stop being excited. We're going to get AAA VR support much, much, much later than everyone else.
