Starting July 18th at 10 AM Pacific and running until the 25th, Steam will be celebrating VR games and culture with its very first Steam VR Fest. This special promotion will bring discounts and demos, much like other Steam VR festivals and sales.
The Steam Fest promotions give developers an opportunity to show off upcoming titles, and while we’ve seen VR games take part in some of these in the past, it’s great to see that Steam VR Fest will focus entirely on Virtual Reality.
We currently don’t know what exactly Valve has in store for us. We’re hoping to see discounts on hardware such as the Valve Index, and accessories. Perhaps a follow-up to Half-Life Alyx?
We’re unlikely to hear about any new hardware announcements like the infamous Project Deckard since the headset is probably a ways off. Either way, we’ll keep an eye out for anything and report back as the week progresses.
