About a week after the launch of the Oculus Rift (our full review here), HTC is coming out with its Vive VR headset (our full review here). As expected, there are a handful of games available on Vive's launch day. For some titles, developers have provided additional information such as the room-scale requirements, or if it's best enjoyed in a seated or standing position.
At the moment, there are 37 titles already available for the Vive, in addition to the 35 games launching on April 5, and the number of titles available could still change before launch. Currently, we expect another 31 titles to launch soon. Speaking to Polygon, Valve's Chet Faliszek said that the company didn't have a definitive list of launch titles as Oculus did. Instead, the main focus was the developers throughout the creation process. HTC and Valve gave developers the hardware, but the developers had the final say as to when their work would launch for the VR platform.
As VR is still a new medium, some developers are releasing their games under the Early Access banner. This means that some titles are still under development, and the developers are looking for additional feedback from players to improve their games.
So without further ado, here is the current list of "launch" titles coming to the HTC Vive on April 5.
Update, 4/5/16, 8:25am PT: Just after we published this article, Valve reached out and hit us with the surprise that it was nearly doubling the number of titles launching alongside the Vive. You can see the list of additional launch titles here.
