New HTC Vive Owners Getting $60-Worth of Content
HTC has announced today that purchasing a new HTC Vive will now be bundled with a pre-order download code for Bethesda’s upcoming Fallout 4 VR, set to launch December 12th. This lovely announcement comes in the heel of a $200 price cut for the HTC VR headset back in August, bringing the cost from $800 to $600 for the Vive. That said, the game will be bundled in with the Vive with a pre-order code “while supplies last.”
In a press release, Joel Breton, general manager of Vive Studios, said, “The promise of a game with near endless content, including hundreds of locations, characters, and quests, fully playable in VR, is something that we have been focused on providing for the VR gaming community. We are now thrilled to provide this incredible game to new Vive owners and eagerly look forward to game’s launch on Vive this December.”
With Bethesda bringing Doom and Skyrim to VR, this bundle may sway some VR fence-sitters to jump over to HTC Vive. That said, I’d wait for reviews for these upcoming VR ports as I’m unsure how playing Fallout 4 VR in long bursts will feel.
