Elite: Dangerous will be compatible with the HTC Vive

The SteamVR catalog is expanding a little bit with the announcement of the compatibility of Elite: Dangerous with the valve system. News that should please fans of space trips.

Frontier Developments has announced on Monday that its massively multiplayer Space Opera, Elite: Dangerous, will invite the HTC reality helmet, the Vive. The game opens as a little virtual reality by extending the number of compatible devices.

Remember, the game is already compatible with the Oculus Rift and offers the player to dive into virtual reality in the ruthless world of a spaceship driver in a huge open environment (the Milky Way 1: 1) and multiplayer. Initial feedback about her were all very positive, the game lends itself perfectly to virtual reality, since it does not directly call the motor functions of the body, but only the head and hands to drive).

Frontier with his game Elite: Dangerous is an excellent example of team shooting flexibility offered by Vive party and SteamVR.
