Battlefield studio seeks student to investigate Oculus Rift for possible Frostbite integration

DICE is looking for a Masters student to investigate virtual reality technology as part their thesis, with the view integrate it into its Frostbite engine.

The master thesis is an unpaid and temporary employment position, and it is not necessary to be associated with a university or educational body.

Task for the role include: exploring existing research for relevant subjects, investigate and implement support for Oculus Rift SDK in the Frostbite Engine and investigate and implement techniques for improving user experience.

Applicants should have experience in C++ programming and knowledge about VR technology and rendering is recommended.

The studio has been considering research into VR in the recent past.

As well as these intern positions, DICE is currently looking to hire an additional 60 people to its game development team and the Frostbite team.
