The HTC Vive virtual reality headset will support the popular PC massively multiplayer space sim Elite: Dangerous sometime this "Holiday" season. The game's developer, Frontier Developments will update the game to support SteamVR, which the HTC Vive will use as its virtual reality operating system.
Frontier Developments' Chief Creative Officer Jonny Watts is quoted as saying:
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.
A few week ago, SteamVR's creators at Valve revealed that only a "limited quantity of community and developer systems" for the HTC Vive would be available for sale later this year, followed by a full commercial launch in the first quarter of 2016.
