HTC Vive comes with free copy of Fallout 4 VR

Buy an HTC VIVE and get Fallout 4 VR for free

A bit ago I predicted that Fallout 4 VR would be the killer app VR so desperately needs, and Bethesda Game Studios is doing everything in their power to make that happen. You can check your "local for details and availability".

HTC's Vive VR headset is getting a dose of radiation in the form of Fallout 4 VR. The HTC Vive also got a hefty $200 price cut reducing its total price to $599, and now it comes with a free copy of Fallout 4 VR.

Announced earlier today, HTC stated that all purchases of HTC Vive headsets from the company's website or via an authorized retailer will receive a free code for Fallout 4 VR ahead of the game's launch on December 12, 2017. You're looking at all-new combat, crafting and building systems here, including "hundreds of locations, characters and quests, fully playable in VR" nearly endlessly, without repeating yourself.

In adapting Fallout 4 to VR, Bethesda made some key changes. And according to Joel Breton, general manager of Vive Studios, the virtual reality version of the post-apocalyptic RPG will have the same content as its console and PC counterparts, with hundreds of locations, characters, and quests fully playable in VR. "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".

It's looking like the freedom of exploring the wasteland again, complete with the Vive's room-scale technology, will be the most responsive and immersive experience in virtual reality so far, and for those picking up a Vive for Christmas, this will be the cherry on the cake.

Though HTC has long taken an anti-exclusive approach to its content, it's certainly making the most of having Fallout 4 appear only on its headset for the time being.
