Extended Edition Details
Over the years we have received many requests for content updates to the original Waltz of the Wizard (thank you!), but we are a small team with new VR products in the works and can’t commit more resources to the free version than we already have. The Extended Edition allows us to keep updating and supporting Waltz, while also supporting our efforts in developing new VR experiences!
The Extended Edition is a remaster of the original that adds new spells, interactions and secrets, along with performance optimizations and new options that help keep the experience an excellent showcase introduction to VR. You’ll find things like a roomscale-only locomotion option and reach-assist to make the experience more accessible for showcasing VR. There is also improved hardware support, such as finger tracking and features for Valve’s Index Controllers!
