Crytek has been pushing into the world of VR for a while now, with the Crysis developer announcing it has signed up 6 more universities into its VR First program.




The developer has added The University of Canterbury (New Zealand), Kajaani University of Applied Sciences (Finland), University College London (UK), Manchester Metropolitan University (UK), Oklahoma University (USA), and Tallinn Technical University (Estonia). Crytek first announced VR First in January, offering up its CryEngine source code for schools and free access to the required VR hardware from various companies.


At the time, Crytek's Ferhan Özkan said: "Collaborating with the IEEE dramatically broadens the potential reach of VR First and emphasizes our commitment to ensuring the program makes a genuine impact on the landscape of VR research and development at the grassroots level".
