HTC's Viveport is getting over 75 new games added to the service as part of an update to the subscription. That being said, it's not made immediately clear what all the new titles actually are, but it is stated that included in the mix is over a dozen different games and pieces of content which you can't find on any other platform. Details like that should help strengthen the subscription service aimed at delivering access to VR content for HTC Vive owners, as everyone loves a little bit of exclusivity to help justify the decision to purchase one platform over another.

With the new collection of game titles being thrown into the mix, Viveport's game library is essentially doubling what it was offering to consumers before today, and will now include over 150 different VR games and apps to stream to the headset. That's not too bad for a subscription service that only just launched back in April of this year, though it will be more impressive in six months or so if the support to add new games to the service continues at this rate.

While HTC doesn't give a full list of the new games in its announcement, there are a few that have been highlighted including Knockout League, Overkill, ROM: Extraction, Cosmic Trip, and Sairento VR. Already available were titles like Tilt Brush, theBlu, and EverestVR. Also worth noting is that in the image below, some of the new titles are showcased, so it might be a safe bet to assume that the other games that are shown are also part of the new crop of available titles, though not all of them are labeled. If you have an HTC Vive headset and you haven't yet checked out the Viveport service, you can subscribe to it for $6.99 a month, though HTC is also offering free trials for first-time members which lasts an entire month. It's also worth noting that the subscription only allows you access to five titles per month, so you'll definitely want to choose wisely when it comes to selecting the games you want to play, especially if you're just testing things out with the trial.
