The first co-created product since the announcement of the partnership in May, the headset combines Vive Pro’s crisp resolution, audio, and ergonomics to deliver the ultimate VR experience for audiences around the world.
In addition to a unique look and feel, the headset will be paired with the new ‘McLaren Garage VR’ experience—a Vive Studios release in cooperation with McLaren—as well as a custom version of ‘RFactor 2’ McLaren Edition VR racing.
This is a chance for race fans worldwide to feel like they are in the heart of the action, being a McLaren driver or pit crew right from their own living rooms.
These special edition experiences are available exclusively on VIVEPORT, where current Vive owners can create a free subscription today to access these titles for free.
“Grand Prix auto racing attracts over 500 million fans globally, and we’re excited to partner with McLaren to bring a unique perspective to race fans through VR,” said Alvin Wang Graylin, China President, HTC. “Through our collaboration, we’re combining our best-in-class VR headset with their long heritage of racing expertise to create the most immersive experience for fans across the globe. This is a chance for customers to go beyond being a spectator and feel the excitement of being a McLaren driver or pit crew right from their living rooms.”
“It’s been brilliant to tap into HTC’s technology and work together closely to create this top of the range headset and VR experience, so fans can feel like they are in the heart of the action, at a racetrack with the McLaren Racing team,” said Zak Brown, CEO, McLaren Racing. “We think this limited edition Vive Pro headset is hugely exciting for both racing and VR fans alike.”
“VR is an incredibly exciting technology that brings fans closer to racing than ever before. The realistic experience provided by the VIVE Pro McLaren Limited Edition headset can be enjoyed by everyone from casual gamers to professional drivers.” said Lando Norris, McLaren Racing driver
