Frontier Developments has announced that it will be adding support for SteamVR and the HTC Vive virtual reality headset to the PC version of Elite: Dangerous.

“We’re thrilled to announce SteamVR support as part of the ongoing expansion of Elite Dangerous,” Frontier Developments’ Chief Creative Officer 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 added. “Players take the helm of an amazing starship experience, and we look forward to showing it for the first time on Vive at EGX.”

Support for both headsets will be added via a free update in holiday 2015.
