WMR owners will also have access to Viveport Infinity.
Originally launched as a dedicated online store for HTC Vive owners, Viveport has expanded its reach over the past year to offer a viable alternative to Steam, supporting Oculus Rift, as well as launching the flexible Viveport Infinity subscription model. Today, the retail platform has announced plans to introduce support for Windows Mixed Reality headsets (WMR).
With devices from manufacturers such as Dell, Acer, Samsung, HP, Asus, and Lenovo, the Windows Mixed Reality headset line is one of the most affordable PC-based VR devices.
Thus, from June 5, if you have a WMR headset, you can go to Viveport to download compatible games and applications. However, do not expect that each video game and application will be available on the first day, they will be added to the platform gradually.
“This summer, Viveport is expanding to cover all major PC VR devices, including HTC Vive, Oculus Rift and Oculus Rift S, and soon Windows MR and Index Valve,” said Ricard Steiber, president of Viveport, in a statement.
“We are pleased that our users now have the additional opportunity to discover the best content VR can offer at an affordable price through Viveport Infinity,” added Dan Newell, director of Mixed Reality at Microsoft.
“Adding support for Windows Mixed Reality to Viveport strengthens the VR ecosystem for both consumers and developers.”
WMR owners, of course, will have access to the new Viveport Infinity subscription service, which costs $ 12.99 USD per month or less with a prepaid annual subscription. They will be able to access video games such as RUSH and Gun Club VR from Binary Mill, Final Assault from Phaser Lock Interactive, and Shell Games. In addition, members are eligible for benefits such as premium content on Video Viveport, monthly coupons, weekend offers, and they are also eligible to participate in free distribution of games.
