Frontier Adds Oculus VR Store Distribution Channel for Elite Dangerous

 

Frontier has announced that Elite Dangerous will support Facebook's Oculus Rift Virtual Reality (VR) headset from its consumer launch on 28 March.

 

In addition to delivering an update to all existing Elite Dangerous and Horizons players, Frontier will distribute the Elite Dangerous Deluxe Edition, including Elite Dangerous and the Horizons season of expansions, via the Oculus Store.

 

Elite Dangerous is one of the first top quality games to showcase the possibilities of VR, which differentiates the title and will provide sales opportunities as uptake of VR devices grows.

 

Commenting on this David Braben, CEO said

 

"I'm delighted to officially announce our support for Oculus Rift. VR is a technology with significant long term potential. Having support for and distribution by the current two major VR players, Oculus and Steam VR / HTC Vive, in place as they start to ship their first consumer headsets in the coming weeks means we are well placed to reinforce Elite Dangerous' position as a leading VR experience with the new VR audience."
