Multi-Res Shading has been added to Epic Games’ Unreal Engine 4.13. You can download the latest build here but it should be noted that you'll need a free Unreal Engine Github account to access it. If you continue to get a 404 error, you might have to link your Unreal Engine account to your GitHub account.
Multi-Res Shading is an innovative rendering technique for VR whereby each part of an image is rendered at a resolution that better matches the pixel density of the lens corrected image. Multi-Res Shading uses Maxwell or later architecture features to render multiple scaled viewports in a single pass, delivering substantial performance improvements in pixel shading. MRS is intergrated into our custom branch of Unreal 4.
