HTC Reveals New Vive XR Elite VR Headset

Cher Wang claims the new all-in-one virtual reality hardware, ‘Represents the next milestone in the progression towards the fully immersive internet…’

HTC Vive unveiled its new consumer flagship all-in-one VIVE XR Elite headset at CES.

The flagship headset combines both Mixed Reality and Virtual Reality capabilities into one lightweight, compact, and versatile device that’s good for gaming, productivity, fitness and more.

Cher Wang, Co-Founder and Chairwoman of HTC Corp commented, “The Vive XR Elite all-in-one represents the next milestone in the progression towards the fully immersive internet, going beyond today’s VR with accurate pass-through video to open up a new realm of realism in learning and playing. This advanced yet compact device offers the best of all worlds for consumers, providing the ideal physical gateway to the universe of experiences offered by Viverse, our version of the metaverse, with the widest variety of content inputs even up to the very latest standards such as WiFi 6E.”

The headset also includes a full-colour RGB passthrough camera and hand-tracking feature that allows for an entirely new dimension of MR scenarios. The XR Elite is also shaping up to become VIVE’s biggest range of launch titles ever as up to 100 new pieces of MR and VR content will arrive in the launch window including Demeo, Hubris, YUKI, Maestro: The Masterclass, Les Mills Body Combat, FigminXR, Unplugged: Air Guitar, Finger Gun, and more. Post-launch, even more content will arrive, such as Everslaught: Invasion, and later in the year full MR games like Eggscape.

VIVE XR Elite is now available to pre-order from vive.com and participating authorized retailers. Pre-order shipments are estimated to begin in late February. VIVE XR Elite comes with the headset itself, two controllers, and the headset battery cradle. It will cost £1,299 in the UK and $1,099 in the US.
