The Oculus Quest is certainly the talk of the town right now, but if you have an Oculus Rift or Rift S, you can participate in an impressive new deal, too. The big surprise, however, is that the deal comes courtesy of Viveport.
Through the entire month of June, anyone with an Oculus Rift or Rift S – including those who are already Viveport Infinity members — will be able to redeem two months of the service for free.
Typically priced at $12.99 per month, Viveport Infinity gives subscribers the opportunity to play hundreds of games and experiences at no extra charge, and new titles are added to the service on a regular basis. These include exclusive titles, such as Game of Thrones: Beyond the Wall, and titles like Rhythm Defender, Rush, and Obduction.
HTC values the experiences included at more than $3,000. You can filter for Oculus-Rift-compatible titles to get a clearer view of exactly what you’re able to play on the service. Any games you select will be added to your Viveport library for easier access later on.
The offer, which will also apply to Valve Index users once the headset releases, will appear as a code in your account once your initial two-week free trial ends. Alongside the free experiences, a Viveport Infinity membership also gives you access to discounts on purchases, and access to Viveport Video. During the promotional period, Viveport Infinity developers are given an 80 percent revenue share on their included titles.
