HTC claims the headset's Base Station 1.0 system offers up to 15 square meters of space for an immersive VR gaming experience. It features 2880 x 1700 of combined pixel resolution and its flip-up headset design allows you to switch between reality and virtual settings.
Its motion faceplate is also sold separately and it comes with six camera sensors to expand your range of motion. Its wide field and six-degree-of-freedom support also provide accurate inside-out tracking.
The Vive Cosmos Elite will begin shipping on March 18 to consumers for $899 and pre-orders are now live on HTC's website. Also, you can get a six-month Infinity membership if you pre-order the headset.
