Oculus Rift and Vive headset developers have long struggled to get developers to support their headsets on their platforms, and this week, Arctus, the creators of the VR headset, announced they’ve been working with the Oculus team to fix that.
“The Arcti VR headset has been designed for Oculus, the VR platform that started it all, to provide the most advanced, best-in-class, most accessible VR experiences to developers and users alike,” Arctiscolts VR team said in a statement.
ArctixVR, a division of Arctes, says it will work with Oculus to deliver the new version of the ArktixVR headset for developers, and the company has already begun testing it. “
Today we’re thrilled to be partnering with the Arck Software Group to help them deliver a truly immersive VR experience with the new Oculus Rift.”
ArctixVR, a division of Arctes, says it will work with Oculus to deliver the new version of the ArktixVR headset for developers, and the company has already begun testing it.
“Since Arctias first released the ArkTix in 2016, it has become the most-popular headset on the market,” the company said in the statement.
The new version is designed for VR developers to create “vivacious, immersive VR experiences that are immersive, challenging, and entertaining.”
The new headset will be available later this year for $300.
Oculus has already released its own VR headset for the Oculus Rift, and that headset supports a variety of headsets, including the Samsung Gear VR, Sony PlayStation VR, and Microsoft’s Project Morpheus.
But this is the first time Arctics headset has officially been supported by Oculus, and Arctius said that Arctises headset is a better alternative than the Gear VR.
“Arctis VR headset is built on the Artis core architecture, which makes it the most optimized headset for VR,” the statement said.
“While the ArcanixVR will not match the performance of our most popular headset, ArtixVR is an easier-to-use headset that offers the best experiences possible.”
