New VR headset for gaming, social gaming
New VR headsets for gaming and social gaming are arriving in the U.S. as early as next week.
The headset, dubbed the Eureka, is being developed by Valve, which says it will work with some developers.
The headsets will be available at retailers on October 6.
The Eurekah will cost $299, or $349 with the headset bundled.
Valve says that it will also offer a free version of the headset to developers that it has partnered with.
The Eurekanah will allow users to experience virtual reality, but its real-world capabilities are being left up to developers.
This is not the first time that Valve has made VR-focused headsets available to the public.
Valve’s SteamVR headset, for example, launched in 2015.
Valve also made the HTC Vive, which came out in 2017.
The headset will work on any device that supports an HTC Vive-compatible GPU.
Valve has not announced pricing for the Eurydice headset, which is being manufactured by Asus.
It will be supported by SteamVR, Valve’s VR-ready game service.
Valve hopes that the Eurah will make gaming easier, since the game developers won’t have to worry about installing their own headsets.
The company is also promising to make the European Rift more powerful and better-looking.
Valve said it will give developers access to more VR features, including support for multiple controllers, an integrated touchpad, and a headset that can be folded up like a backpack.
It also plans to release a new VR game every week for at least a year, Valve said.
