To play the Half-Life: Alyx game, we had already recommended the HTC Vive Cosmos Elite virtual reality headset in our lines. This is because it has many advantages, starting with its comfort: the helmet adapts to all face shapes, and is even suitable for eyeglass wearers. Note also that the helmet has a design called “flip-up”, which will allow you to raise the visor in order to clear your field of vision without removing the helmet.

The two controllers supplied with the headset have been redesigned to guarantee more precision and better fluidity in the movements made for the game. The LCD screens of 3.4 inches each of the headset benefit from a very good definition of 2880 x 1700 pixels. They also have the advantage of reducing the grid effect, one of the biggest weaknesses of virtual reality technology, which consists of seeing separation lines between the pixels, much more visible since the eyes are positioned very close. of the screen. A rather annoying effect, therefore, that HTC promises to limit by offering LCD screens that precisely reduce this distance between the pixels.

During your gaming sessions, you can of course benefit from the two SteamVR base stations, each covering up to 15 m2, which allow you to enjoy a very good immersion in the game over a considerable area. They work by sending signals to the headphones and controllers, which will help capture your movements. Finally, the headset has two over-ear headphones that will make the immersion even more effective.
