SteamVR updated with experimental Linux support for SteamVR Home

Posted by , | Views: 8,905
Valve have pushed out another update to SteamVR, this time Linux has been given experimental support for SteamVR Home. Find the full changelog here.

What is SteamVR Home?
SteamVR Home is an interactive virtual space that you can explore and customize to your liking. Environments support animation, sound, games, and you can teleport around and explore locations created by the community.

It has social features built in too, so you can invite friends over to your home space. You can also launch VR games from here and more.

Find out more about SteamVR Home here.

Good to see Valve pushing VR support on Linux further along.

I'm still sad about how expensive VR headsets are, it's basically a pipe dream for me right now so we likely won't have any VR reviews here. Valve said they couldn't provide me with one and HTC themselves have never replied to me.

As stated before, it's basically Destinations, but I think it's pretty genius how Valve seems to be integrating it into the SteamVR home menu. Otherwise, I wouldn't really bother using it. Exploring Kakariko Village (an area from Zelda OOT that was put in the Steam Workshop) is quite fun, and the ability to visit friends in their own "home screens" is pretty neat.
