Valve’s Index VR headset will be released on June 15.
A Steam Store post published by mistake — and quickly taken down – revealed that the Index, which was revealed by Valve last week with no details beyond an image, will go on sale on June 15. The post, despite containing some placeholder text, provided some additional details about the Index, including that it will have built-in headphones and will use “inside-out” motion-tracking, so it won’t require a base-station.
The Index will also require a minimum PC spec of a dual-core processor with hyperthreading, 8Gb of RAM and at least a GeForce GTX 970 or Radeon RX480 graphics card. Valve confirmed to Engadget that the details about the Index in the mistakenly uploaded post were correct. Twitter user Wario64 helpfully tweeted the deleted pages.
Valve has confirmed that it will fully reveal the Index, and its accompanying Knuckles controllers, on May 1, at which point, it will become possible to pre-order the VR headset. In the meantime, keep an eye on the Index’s Steam Store page – Valve will add some details to it beyond a mere photo at some point.
