Following Razer’s acquisition of tactile composer specialists Interhaptics, the company this week announced the release of a free version of its Haptic Composer and SDK. The newly updated tactile authoring tool now supports four gaming platforms: iOS, Android, PlayStation 5 and Meta. Download the SDK from the official Interhaptics website using the link below. The Unity version is already available, and the Unreal Engine version is coming soon.
“Interhaptics first launched Haptic Composer two years ago. Today, the tactile design tool is relaunched not only with its exclusive unique features such as three different tactile experiences (vibration, textures and stiffness), but also with a completely new user interface, a library of readymade tactile effects and support. for audio to tactile. Developers can extract tactile effects from audio and customize them directly with Haptic Composer.”
“Gaming studios and developers will have early access to Haptic Composer, as well as the SDK for designing, testing and playing haptics for the DualSense™ wireless controller for PlayStation®5* (haptic feedback and adaptive triggers), as well as access to Meta Quest. controllers, iOS and Android smartphones for Unity Engine. This will allow game studios to create the ultimate haptic experience for gamers across platforms – all developers have to do is import the sound, tweak it, and the haptic experience is ready to go.”
“Great tactility in games improves player immersion, engagement and retention,” said Eric Vezzoli, CEO of Interhaptics. “Currently, each OEM has its own unique or proprietary method of creating haptic experiences for each device, which cannot be easily transferred to different platforms and is notoriously difficult to implement. We have addressed this issue and worked with Razer to make Haptic Composer and SDK free for game studios and developers. We are excited to see how the game development industry will continue to push the boundaries of the gaming experience with Interhaptics.”
