Experiment 7’s VR conversion of popular boardgame, Settlers of Catan, is coming to an HTC Vive and/or Windows VR headset very soon.
A Steam page for the game, which released on the Oculus Rift, Oculus Go and Gear VR headsets in May, recently went live, promising HTC Vive and Windows Mixed Reality support. The page only says the game is ‘Coming Soon’, but the trailer seen on the store page notes that it’s ‘available now’. It sounds like launch is coming in the very near future, then.
A price isn’t listed, but the game costs $14.99 on the Oculus Store so we’d expect the same of the Steam release.
The best part? The SteamVR version is going to feature full cross-play support with the existing versions of the game, at least on Vive. That means Vive owners will be able to take on their friends that just picked up an Oculus Go, or settle old rivalries with the Rift. Cross-play support for Windows headsets isn’t mentioned despite native support being listed in the headsets section, though we wouldn’t be surprised to see it included.
Catan’s VR support is a real joy, perfectly transcribing a classic game into VR, so it’s great to see it come to more headsets.
