Remember back in January when Eurogamer reported that Elite: Dangerous was dropping its long-planned support for the Oculus Rift in favor of SteamVR even though Frontier said pretty much the exact opposite before and after the article? Good times!
Today, Frontier has put a date on those really, totally happening Oculus plans: March 28th.
“Frontier was one of the earliest Kickstarter backers and developed Elite Dangerous with VR in mind. It also supports cross-platform multiplayer, which means you can explore the galaxy with players across Oculus, consoles, PC, and Mac. All current Elite Dangerous: Horizons owners can download the Oculus version for free! This special version includes the base game, along with the full season of Elite Dangerous: Horizons bonus content.”
To be clear, Frontier has noted that you don’t actually need to own Horizons specifically to play the game in VR. Check out the announcement video below!
