Some other features and improvements include that game will fully utilize motion controls using the quest’s touch controllers, and character animations have been faithfully converted to Unreal Engine 4. You will also be able to move around using either analog sticks or the usual VR teleportation control system in either a standing or seated position.

Weapons and various items in the game have also been remodeled and combined with the game’s motion controls will seem like real-life pickup-able objects. Another improvement that adds to the immersion is the addition of 3D Spatial audio to add more immersion and gives the player an indication of where enemies are and where noises are coming from.
