Revive, a free mod project created by LibreVR in response to Oculus’ stance on software exclusivity, has seen its fair share of controversy since its initial proof of concept was revealed last October. If you’re looking for a deep dive into the Revive dilemma, you’d better check out our interview with project creator for the long of it.

Here’s the quick and dirty though: With the latest Oculus Home update removing ‘headset check’ DRM from titles published on the marketplace—a security measure added back in May that stymied LibreVR’s progress into liberating the entire store’s worth of exclusive content—the compatibility tool now has free rein over exclusive Oculus content, effectively marking a reversal in the company’s DRM policy.

In light of the update, Oculus now maintains they “won’t use hardware checks as part of DRM on PC in the future.”

Check and mate. So Vive owners can look forward to purchasing and playing 35 games directly on Oculus Home without the fear of Oculus actively blocking unofficially supported headsets, which includes platform exclusives EVE: Valkyrie, Chronos, and Edge of Nowhere; and free content such as Henry, Lost, and bundled launch title Lucky’s Tale—all playable using HTC Vive. Note that Oculus maintains they don’t guarantee the continued functionality of any unofficial mod, as updates to their platform may break things.
