    Epic Games has released early access support for developing VR applications on Mac platforms through the Unreal Engine GitHub repository. You can get access by going to the private VR on Mac branch (login required). Review the readme for instructions on how to get started.

    At this year’s WWDC, Apple announced VR support for their upcoming version of OS X, High Sierra (macOS 10.13 and above). Epic Games took the stage with ILM to demonstrate the new functionality using the Unreal Engine in VR Mode on the new iMac Pro.

    ull support for VR development on macOS will be in upcoming Unreal Engine 4 releases. Mac VR support, together with general Metal 2 support and wide-ranging Mac optimizations, will ship in Unreal Engine 4.18 binary tools (via the Epic launcher) starting with previews in September and with the full release in early October.
