Viveport FAQ: How is Viveport different from Steam?

Viveport builds on the successful offering of VR games readily available on Steam and opens up the marketplace to a wide variety of VR categories with its own app store exclusively dedicated to immersive VR and 360 content. It is a unique yet complementary distribution platform to Steam with distinct experiential and monetization features and a broad portfolio of content ranging from fitness to fashion apps, news to nature experiences, and creativity to productivity tools. In respect to VR games, developers will continue to distribute independently through the Steam platform and submit gaming titles to Viveport for distribution in China only.

Hi Imummey,

Yes. Although Viveport is an independent platform from Steam, users will need SteamVR to run apps on Viveport. Users can download the Vive software installer including Viveport and Steam on the website.
