OSVR Now Available on Steam

OSVR supported titles & hardware are now playable on Steam.

 

SAN FRANCISCO – Co-founders of Open Source Virtual Reality (OSVR), the largest open source virtual reality consortium in the world, today announced a Steam update that provides support for OSVR content on Steam. The news means that universal VR content is now accessible through a single point of distribution.

“This is a great milestone for VR, giving users access to more hardware and content and driving Valve’s and OSVR’s shared vision of totally open VR content to everyone,” says Christopher Mitchell, OSVR Lead, Razer.

"OSVR makes it easy for game developers to support hundreds of devices and for hardware vendors to tap into top-notch content,” says Yuval Boger, CEO of Sensics. "OSVR content on Steam makes it easier than ever to distribute and obtain OSVR-compatible content.”

"We are delighted to announce support for OSVR titles," said Valve’s Augusta Butlin. "Steam is an open platform for all developers, and adding support for OSVR further expands the massive content offerings for the millions of gamers on Steam."

Accessing OSVR content on Steam:

OSVR icons next to compatible content and added filter functions will allow users of OSVR compatible hardware, including the HDK series of headsets, to narrow their searches for OSVR-enabled experiences.

 

Growing list of OSVR content:
The OSVR Developer Fund is an up-to-5-million-dollar initiative that incentivizes developers to spur VR technology development through the production of open-platform content.

The fund has seen hundreds of applications since its availability last July, with 32 titles already available or on the way to the platform. (List of titles under annex)
