Online, both Valve and HP describe the headset as “the new standard in VR.” The Reverb G2 VR HMD (head-mounted display) promises to provide “an immersive, comfortable, and compatible VR experience,” according to the companies’ websites.
The headset is a follow-up to HP’s Reverb VR headset, designed for the Windows Mixed Reality line of VR devices and apps. IGN speculates that the Reverb G2 will likely combine the noticeably high-definition display of the first-generation device (a resolution of 2160 x 2160 pixels per eye) with Valve’s expertise gained from its own VR device: the Valve Index.
The Reverb G2 will utilize Steam VR, as well (the device’s announcement is already displayed on the Steam store).
A release date has yet to be announced, but prospective users can sign up for a notification from HP here.
