We officially got details on the Valve Index just a few minutes ago, and now more information is pouring out on the VR headset. (If you haven’t seen the Index price yet, sit down and take a deep breath.) Now we’re hearing bits and pieces about software, and it looks like the company has big plans for games – though it’s being predictably cagey with the details on exactly what those games will be.
There will be a “flagship VR title” released this year for the Index and other Steam VR-compatible headsets, as Road to VR reports. We don’t know what that game will be, but we’re all hoping it’s that rumoured Half-Life prequel – even if it’s not Half-Life 3, we have to hope somebody at Valve still remembers that Half-Life exists.
More concretely, Valve is working with Cloudhead Games on something called Aperture Hand Labs. This title was demonstrated to outlets like UploadVR at a recent hands-on event, and it looks like a follow-up to The Lab – the Portal-themed VR collection that came alongside the HTC Vive.
