Microsoft today announced a bevy of information regarding their upcoming Windows VR headset launch, which will see headsets from Acer, Dell, HP, and Lenovo coming this holiday season starting at $400. Revealed today by HoloLens chief inventor and project lead Alex Kipman, the Windows VR headsets have been confirmed to work with at least 67 apps—including games, experiences, and 360 video platforms.
Apps and Companies Supporting Windows VR Headsets:
|Ark Park||Life VR|
|Ancient Amuletor VR||Littlstar|
|Arte 360 VR||Made in Holo|
|Baobab||Map Design Lab|
|Bullet Sorrow VR||Next Reality|
|Defend the Bits||Obduction|
|Microsoft Edge||Rec Room|
|Fantastic Contraption||The Rose and I|

|Halo||Space Pirate Trainer|
|Heroes of the Seven Seas||Superhot VR|
|Hololux||Tee Time Golf|
|I Expect You to Die||Universe Sandbox|
|InVokeR||Eternity Warriors VR|
This isn’t by any means a comprehensive list, as we’ve edited out some of the elusively Chinese-centric apps that don’t seem to offer multilingual support.
Windows VR headsets will also support SteamVR, as we suspect Valve and Microsoft are currently collaborating on an OpenVR driver that would allow for developers to more easily push support for games already designed for HTC Vive and Oculus Rift.
