Frontier Developments announces SteamVR support for Elite Dangerous
HTC Vive support coming as a free update to the massively multiplayer space epic this Holiday season.
Frontier Developments announced it will support SteamVR and the HTC Vive virtual reality headset in the PC version of its massively multiplayer space epic Elite Dangerous.
The HTC Vive will be the first virtual reality headset available to consumers, and Elite Dangerous will support Vive on PC from launch via a free update available Holiday 2015.
“We’re thrilled to announce SteamVR support as part of the ongoing expansion of Elite Dangerous,’ Frontier Developments' Chief Creative Officer Jonny Watts said. ‘Back in December 2013 we were among the first to support virtual reality with a triple-A game, and for me, exploring, trading and fighting throughout Elite Dangerous’ 1:1 scale Milky Way remains an unequaled virtual reality experience. We have been working closely with Valve to bring Elite Dangerous to HTC Vive, and we are delighted with the quality we have been able to achieve.”
