Over 30 Games Optimized for Valve Index and Controllers at Launch

If you were one of the quick ones on 1st May then today should be filled with excitement as a Valve Index might be arriving on your doorstep. Announced in March followed by an official reveal in April, the Valve Index is the company’s first branded VR headset whilst introducing the new Valve Index controllers – formerly Knuckles. While the headset itself supports SteamVR – so most virtual reality (VR) videogames on Steam should work fine – Valve has released a list of titles that have been optimised for the new headset/controller setup, just over 30 in total.

When pre-orders went live the Valve Index could be purchased in a number of ways depending on the kit customers already had. The headset by itself, controllers as a pair, or both together (all three options suitable if you own HTC Vive). Or there was the full package with Valve Index, controllers and the new SteamVR 2.0 Base Stations.

If you bought any combination that included the controllers then you’ll want to take a look at this list. The following titles have been confirmed by Valve as optimised for the Valve Index and Valve Index Controllers:

  • Accounting+*
  • Aperture Hand Labs – Free
  • Arizona Sunshine*
  • Arizona Sunshine – Dead Man DLC*
  • Beat Saber
  • Bigscreen Beta – Free
  • Blade & Sorcery

Of course, there are literally thousands of VR titles on Steam which will work with just the headset itself if that’s what you bought. There’s no doubt that plenty of developers will likely be updating their projects to work with the new controllers in the near future, and as best as possible VRFocus will update this article accordingly.
