It’s a big week for HTC and Valve as the pair prepare to showcase the Steam VR-powered HTC Vive virtual reality (VR) head-mounted display (HMD) once more. Rather than focus on hardware as usual, though, Valve is instead hosting a Steam VR Developer Showcase at its home in Seattle, Washington. Plenty of studios were expected to be at the event to show off content for the upcoming HMD, and now the full list of attendees has been revealed, including some names that will be new to VR fans.
VRFocus can confirm that a total of 12 experiences will be on display at the event, two of which have never been heard from before. The first of these is named Space Pirate Trainer while the other is labelled Audioshield. Details such as developers, gameplay features and more are yet to be revealed, though VRFocus will sure to be bring you that information as it’s announced throughout the day.
The other ten experiences on show at this week’s event include titles that were revealed alongside the HTC Vive itself all the way back in March 2015 and some that were only announced in recent weeks. They include Frontier Developments’ Elite: Dangerous, Cloudhead Games’ The Gallery: Call of the Starseed, Northway Games’ Fantastic Contraption, Neat Corporations’ Budget Cuts, FutureTown’s Cloudlands: VR Minigolf, Stress Level Zeros’ Hover Junkers, Google’s Tilt Brush, Owlchemy Labs’ Job Simulator: The 2050 Archives, Vertigo Games’ Arizona Sunshine, and Phaser Lock Interactive’s Final Approach.
The HTC Vive itself will be going up for pre-order next month ahead of the full launch in April 2016. A final release date and pricing is yet to be announced. Check back with VRFocus for the latest on the Steam VR Developer Showcase.
