Cosmos Elite with Half Life ALyx
Vive Cosmos Elite pairs the performance of external tracking alongside the flexibility of inside-out technology to meet the needs of the most demanding VR entertainment enthusiasts.
By using Lighthouse base station technology, users will be able to experience the power and precision of SteamVR tracking. Vive Cosmos Elite also supports Vive’s ecosystem of peripherals including the Vive Tracker—delivering unprecedented input freedom for VR controls—and the Wireless Adapter for an untethered VR experience.
Vive Cosmos Elite includes a pre-installed External Tracking Faceplate, 2 SteamVR base stations, and two Vive controllers. The External Tracking Faceplate can be used with base station versions 1.0 or 2.0 as well as the original Vive or Vive Pro controllers and is easily swapped with the original inside-out tracking faceplate that ships with Vive Cosmos.
Vive Cosmos Elite is built for precision gaming titles such as Half Life: Alyx, Superhot VR, and Audica as well as multiplayer VR titles like Battlewake.
The Vive Cosmos Elite bundle will retail for AED 4299 and be available for purchase on VIVE.com, as well as with select retailers like Virgin Megastores and Axiom.
