HTC Vive pre-orders are set to go live in the U.K. at 3 p.m. GMT today. The virtual reality headset will be priced at £689 (approx. $955), and it’s scheduled to make its official debut in early April.
HTC announced Vive pre-orders for the U.S. — which also kick off today — from Mobile World Congress last week, but the Taiwanese company was quiet about plans to launch the device in other markets. Now a report from TechRadar confirms plans for the U.K.
At 3 p.m. local time today, Brits will be able to pre-order Vive from HTC’s online store ahead of its launch on April 5. Just like the U.S. package, which is priced at $799, Vive will ship with two games — Job Simulator: The 2050 Archives and Fantastic Contraption — free for a limited time.
The bundle also comes with two wireless controllers, two base stations, a Link Box, and a pair of earbuds.
Those in Australia will pay AU$899 (approx. $642) for the device, but there’s no word on its pre-order date there just yet.
To use Vive, you’ll need a compatible PC — and it needs to be pretty powerful. HTC recommends a GeForce GTX 970 or AMD Radeon R9 290 graphics card, an Intel Core i5 4590 or AMD FX 8350 CPU, and 4GB of RAM or better.
