Last night, David Wyand gave a presentation to the Toronto UE4 community about his approach to building a character’s locomotion art and IK for our multiplayer VR FPS, The Field. He talked about driving a game character’s full body give only head and hands input, while the character walks, runs, climbs, crouches, and uh prones (?) along. And to do all this with minimal network traffic. The provided solution is based on art, Blueprints, and code.

Today we released a third look at our new game, The Field, a WW2 VR FPS inspired by Battlefield 1942. This means flag captures, soldiers in varying kits, and vehicles. In this video, we head to the Highlands Obstacle Course to take a look how other players look and move. Run, crouch, belly to the ground, climb, and hand-over-hand. We’ve got it all.
