HTC today announced a new Vive hardware bundle featuring a free copy of Bethesda’s upcoming Fallout 4 VR, a VR port of the entire game that lets you haunt the Wasteland like never before.
Customers who purchase an HTC Vive starting today will now receive a free redemption code well ahead of Fallout 4 VR’s December 12th launch. Currently available for pre-order through Steam, the new Vive bundle represents a $60 savings.
The company currently offers a $600 bundle which includes the Vive headset, two wireless controllers, two base stations, link box, earbuds, and Vive accessories.
HTC says existing Vive customers who purchase Fallout 4 VR will also get a bit of a consolation prize with a free 3-month Viveport subscription, available prior to the game’s launch. Much like premium video services like Netflix, the subscription service lets you play any number of Viveport’s 250 games and experiences.
According to a Steam survey, HTC Vive still holds a majority marketshare of the VR headsets in operation on Steam platform, although Oculus’ Summer of Rift Sale, which saw the Rift + Touch bundle slashed to just $400, has put a significant dent in the company’s overall marketplace supremacy. A bundle featuring one of a most-anticipated VR games in recent history could be instrumental in attracting new customers.
