During the Oculus Connect conference earlier today, Oculus VR’s VP of Product Nate Mitchell came onstage to announce Oculus as an official platform and build target for Unity 5.

Straight from the source blog at the official Oculus website, this concludes that Unity is now set to fully support Oculus, as well as the Rift, with a dedicated add-on that encompasses 3D audio support, stereo imaging optimizations, and a bevy of other features specifically tailored to virtual reality.

Oculus will be supported in both Free and Pro versions of Unity as well, which should mean additional tools and resources for developers to begin creating a swath of new virtual reality titles.
