Videogame hardware manufacturer Razer is spearheading a lot of work in virtual reality (VR) right now. The company is one of the driving forces behind the Open-Source Virtual Reality (OSVR) ecosystem, which incorporates a wide range of VR developers, input devices, engines and more. Recently Razer has announced further steps into VR, revealing a new section for its free software application, Razer Cortex.
This is essentially a portal that allows players to discover and download new content which now stretches to VR titles including those supported by the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift as well as OSVR’s own HMD, the OSVR Hacker Development Kit. There are already over 140 VR titles and demos available at launch including content from Radial-G and Caffeine.
“With 10 million users, Razer Cortex is one of the world’s most used game launchers,” Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO, said of the news. “By adding a VR section to Cortex, gamers may easily tap into the dream-come-true of immersive virtual reality games and content, bringing VR closer to the hands everyday gamers.”
VRFocus will continue to follow Razer closely, reporting back with any further updates on its progress.
