Razer has opened preorders for the HDK 2, a VR headset made by its open-source VR initiative OSVR. The $399 headset will start shipping on August 12th, and if you order before July 28th, you’ll get two free VR games as well: the shooter Descent: Underground and racing game Radial G. Its predecessor, the original lower-resolution HDK, will remain on sale for $299.
So now, Gamers have another headset to choose from in the virtual reality space.
VR headsets are all the rage. But there’s only a handful of high-end ones available to buy right now. The first two that come to mind are the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. After that, there are a slew of lesser-known VR headsets available – and the OSVR from Razer probably leads the pack.
The first OSVR model debuted 18 months ago, however, and the second model only recently unveiled, without any word on when the headset would become available for purchase. Well, on 22 July, gaming peripheral-maker Razer finally announced it is opening up preorders for the second development kit, called the HDK 2. It’s available for $399 and will begin shipping 29 July.
