Vive have announced Viveport, the platform that will compete with Steam.

Viveport will be available to customers later this year and will launch a developer beta soon.

Building on the fast growth and success of great VR games, Viveport will feature immersive experiences across education, design, art, social, video, music, sports, health, fashion, travel, news, shopping, creativity tools, and more, as well as introducing an update to Vive Home, a personal and customizable virtual environment.

Viveport will soon invite both the creator community and customers to discover, create, connect, watch, and shop for the things they love and need in life.

“We believe equal access to virtual reality experiences will make the world a better place; enhancing our daily lives and the way we connect with everything. An important goal for the Viveport team is to enable developers to reach a global audience and grow their business,” said Rikard Steiber, Senior Vice President of Viveport.

 The Viveport store will be available in Vive headsets, web browsers, and as a PC and mobile app.
