SteamVR Desktop Theater Mode Lets You Play Any Game In VR

Valve is working on a solution for those of you who want to play non-VR titles on their Vive or Oculus. It sounds like it’s just another virtual cinema mode, though.

Valve today confirmed that SteamVR Desktop Theater Mode is in early beta and that the company would show it off for the first time at GDC 2016 next week. The mode is a bridge that allows games not made for VR to be played inside a virtual environment in a sort of virtual home theater with a huge display. The company says SteamVR Desktop Theater Mode will support the HTC Vive "and others," which we presume to mean ‘any headset that SteamVR supports’ which is currently the Vive and Oculus Rift.
