The official on-sale date and price has been revealed on Twitter for HTC's latest virtual reality headset, the Vive Cosmos. The headset, which is selling for £699 at the current time will be dropping on October 3 with a few added benefits to go with its upgraded specs.
At the current moment in time, the Cosmos is offering 12 months of VIVEPORT Infinity for anyone who orders the headset before it officially launches in October. This means users can get up to a year of free VR titles and applications, in a subscription-based service, if a Cosmos is pre-ordered.
As for the platform itself, the Vive Cosmos is looking to be HTC's answer to the Oculus Quest bringing untethered play, without the need for a base station. As well as this, the Cosmos will have a much stronger pixel resolution that is around an 88% increase over the original Vive, alongside a flip-up design and a new control scheme, using emitted light as a tracking system. Furthermore, the headset is "future-proofed", meaning it has the ability to be upgraded with different modular options that will keep the Cosmos at the peak of technological advancement.
