EGX 2015 visitors will be the first to go heads on with SteamVR support for Elite Dangerous.

Frontier Developments have announced SteamVR and HTC Vive headset support for the massively multiplayer space adventure Elite Dangerous.
Support will come via a free update, to PC, later this year.

“We’re thrilled to announce SteamVR support as part of the ongoing expansion of Elite Dangerous,” Frontier Developments Creative Director Jonny Watts said. “Back in December 2013 we were among the first to support virtual reality with a triple-A game, and for me, exploring, trading and fighting throughout Elite Dangerous’ 1:1 scale Milky Way remains an unequaled virtual reality experience. We have been working closely with Valve to bring Elite Dangerous to HTC Vive, and we are delighted with the quality we have been able to achieve.”

“Frontier’s Elite Dangerous is an excellent example of a team leveraging the versatility of the Vive and Steam VR,” Valve’s Chet Faliszek said. “Players take the helm of an amazing starship experience, and we look forward to showing it for the first time on Vive at EGX.”

Visitors to this week’s EGX 2015 gaming show can experience a preview of Elite Dangerous and HTC Vive at the Elite Dangerous and HTC booths.
