Steam, Valve’s digital distribution platform, now includes a ‘VR Support’ category, making it easy to search the entire Steam library for Oculus Rift games. Currently four titles are listed as part of the category, with many sure to follow as Rift game developers mark their games with VR support.
Ahead of a talk at Steam Dev Days on changes to the platform that will “support and promote virtual reality games,” Valve has added a ‘VR Support‘ category to Steam game listings. Users of Steam, Valve’s digital distribution platform, can now sort by games that have virtual reality support. ‘VR Support’ seems to be synonymous with “Oculus Rift Support” for now—though the category will likely need further demarcation to deal with future VR headsets.
As of this writing, only four Oculus Rift games are listed under the VR Support category: Team Fortress 2, Lunar Flight, Strike Suit Zero, and No More Room in Hell.
We know for a fact that there are a number of Oculus Rift games available through Steam not currently appearing in the list—likely because the developers need to mark their game as being part of the newly available category. Even Valve’s own Half-Life 2 has yet to appear in the VR Support category, despite offering Oculus Rift support.
