This is not an April fools joke, here's a web archive of the Steam store page.

This is not an April fools joke, here's a web archive of the Steam store page.

Update: Valve has since confirmed to The Verge that the listed information is accurate (but not yet comprehensive). They also confirmed both the announcement and start of pre-orders is set for May 1st with a tentative shipping date in June.

Back in December 2018 a trademark filling for "Valve Index" logo showed up, but back then we didn't know what it was connected to.

Valve teased Valve Index just last week, but today they 'accidentally' released some store pages with quite a bit of information. The new leaked render closely matches the leaked prototype image from July 2018.

Then in a recent video by the developers working on Moondust (the Knuckles/Valve Index Controller tech demo) the developers showed off the SteamVR window with the Valve Index icon and the SteamVR settings window with a resolution mention. See UploadVR's analysis of said video excerpts here.

Since the pages are now deleted, here are the links to app pages on our site: headset, controllers, and base station.

Looking at the created packages for hardware purchases, we believe the following purchase options will be available:

There are currently no packages with non-hardware apps included. We think this app might be the driver for the headset (as it is listed with other drivers as SteamVR DLC). It is also currently in the master list which means all Valve employees automatically get access to it.
