HTC Vive is getting a brand new game bundled with every unit sold… at least it is in Australia.
Vive Studios’ Front Defense, a World War II- era first-person shooter developed by Fantahorn Game Studio, will be included with every unit sold on the Australian Vive website until August 24th. Not only that, but the bundle comes with a themed protective cover for both your headset and the Vive controllers. The white covers sport the Front Defense logo. Pretty cool, huh?
That’s not all; Vive costs $100 AUD less for Australian fans buying directly from the official site for the next two weeks too. But you have to hurry; these units are very limited. The site’s terms and conditions note that only 80 units are available, so if you’re considering picking it up you better act now.
That said, we weren’t the biggest fans of Front Defense, giving it 4/10 in our full review.
We have of course reached out to HTC to ask if this bundle and promotion will be going live anywhere else over the next two weeks. We’d love to see more themed bundles with these covers, especially with big IP like Fallout soon arriving on the headset. Previously Vive bundles included a free copy of Star Trek: Bridge Crew.
