VR fans in more than 30 countries will now be able to access the store, after HTC’s teams in San Francisco, Seattle, Taipei, Beijing and London worked with developers and content creators around the world in recent months.
“The Viveport app store has been live in China since April, and we are happy to have the opportunity to introduce you to more than a dozen VR titles that, for the first time, are available outside of Asia. And there’s more on the way in the upcoming weeks and months,” said HTC in a post on the Vive blog.
Last month HTC, which makes the Vive virtual reality headset, invested US$5 million in Steel Wool, a VR development studio formed by creative veterans of Pixar Animation Studios, Lucasfilm, and Telltale Games.
The firm announced the launch of Viveport at Los Angeles virtual reality expo, VRLA, in August, with the store to feature content across new categories for VR – like information, edutainment, social media, 360˚ video, news, sports, health, travel and shopping.
