2016 is shaping up to be a key year for gaming with the introduction of virtual reality to the mainstream market, with HTC announcing that pre-orders for its Vive headset will begin at the end of next month.

HTC announced to The Telegraph that pre-orders for the HTC Vive headset will begin starting February 29th, 2016, coming on the heels of the Oculus Rift beginning its pre-orders last week.

The HTC Vive’s price hasn’t been revealed just yet, though surely in the next few weeks before its pre-orders begin we’ll know more about the upcoming headset, which is currently being co-developed between HTC and Valve, and will be entering a competitive year for VR headsets between the release of the Oculus Rift and Sony’s PlayStation VR.

Pre-orders for the HTC Vive will begin on February 29th, 2016.
