HTC has announced a new app store for its virtual reality headset, the HTC Vive. The storefront, called Viveport, has been in private beta and launches to every Vive owner today.
"We believe Viveport is the place where you will begin your journey into new virtual reality experiences. Fans in over 30 countries will join us on a fantastic voyage, as they get to experience amazing VR content published by the best creators in the industry," wrote Viveport president Rikard Steiber.
"The Viveport app store has been live in China since April, and we are happy to have the opportunity to introduce you to more than a dozen VR titles that, for the first time, are available outside of Asia. And there's more on the way in the upcoming weeks and months," he added.
"As part of this release, we are introducing Viveport Premieres–titles launching first on Viveport. These titles include Everest VR, Google Spotlight Stories' Pearl, Lifeliqe, Stonehenge VR, The Music Room, an all-new edition of theBlu, and more. It's been truly inspiring to see that so many developers want to publish their content on Viveport with us."
To celebrate the launch of the store, Vive owners will be able to buy certain Vive titles for only a $1. The list includes theBlu, Mars Odyssey, The Music Room, and Firebird - La Peri.
