Valve Teases New VR Headset, More Info Coming In May

What do we know about Valve's new VR headset? Not much beyond this image

It is said that the new Valve Index would feature a 135° FoV paired with a 1440 x 1660 resolution per eye to enhance the gaming experience this year.

It was only a matter of time.

It's been speculated for months and more that Valve would end up releasing their own VR headset paired with their Knuckles controllers while the wait should finally be over soon.

Design wise, the Valve Index appears to be the same as the HTC Vive at first sight.

Valve's stand-alone VR headset was long rumored to be in works, but we never happened to see anything coming out of the shelves. That is, in conjunction with the Half-Life news, more than a little to look forward to! "May 2019." Other details are scarce. The front of the headset is flanked by at least two sensors. Speculation suggests that Index will use outside-in tracking via SteamVR. The company previously worked with HTC for the development of the latter's Vive VR headset and integrated it into the Steam ecosystem. Valve along with their longtime partner HTC is working on this VR headset which will rival the Oculus Rift.

Whilst Valve's website doesn't have a whole lot of information, Arstechnica has learned some more information about the product. The company shared an image on Steam for the so-called Valve Index on Friday, and it's been hush-hush about the device since.
