We have some good news to share regarding VIVE Cosmos. First, Cosmos will be entering the market in Q3 timeframe and will be the next consumer-centric headset from VIVE. Second, the headset is fully backward compatible with existing SteamVR titles. We did identify some areas to help you further upgrade your content for VIVE Cosmos without needing a dev kit.
To help your content look its best on our new platform, we have put together a Get Started Guide and other assets. Click here to download.
Since VIVE Cosmos will be available soon, we’re dedicating resources to make sure your content looks great on the new headset. In fact, we’re committing the next 2 months to comprehensive testing. So, the sooner you can send us your updated build, the better chance we can test it and have it ready for our launch window.
Once you have updated your app, you can either submit a production release for us to test and publish. Or, if you are not ready to publish, you can create a Beta version of your content in the VIVEPORT Developer Console and then invite firstname.lastname@example.org as a Beta tester. In either case, our team will do a review and then notify you if there are any issues.
The beta guide can be found here.
The general VIVEPORT submission guide can be found here.

We look forward to your updated content being a big part of our successful VIVE Cosmos launch!
