VR is the big (and expensive) thing right now. Elite Dangerous has been helping that along with its support for Occulous Rift, but native support for Steam VR will be coming this holiday season.
Frontier PR's Michael Gapper announced this over twitter letting players know what's coming our way.
Happy to announce Elite Dangerous is coming to SteamVR and HTC Vive with a free update later this year.— Michael Gapper (@michaelgapper) September 21, 2015
