Tomorrow is the HTC Vive’s second birthday. Yes, it’s really been two years since the SteamVR headset started transporting us to other worlds. Hard to believe, isn’t it? To celebrate, the company is giving away some free games from today.
From 12:01am PDT on 4/4/18 through 11:59pm on 4/8/18, every Vive owner will be able to claim some free games over on Viveport. Specifically, you can get World War II-era wave shooter, Front Defense, and its multiplayer sequel, Front Defense Heroes, at no charge. We weren’t blown away by either game, but you can’t really argue with free, can you?
Also available in the promotion is the likable Super Puzzle Galaxy Lite and one of the first Vive Studios-published games, Arcade Saga (which was also free last Vive Day).
That’s not all, though. During the same period of time all Viveport Subscribers will be getting a free copy of Solfar Studios’ Everest VR. Not only that but you can grab a three-month subscription for half the price, allowing you to play up to five VR experiences a month, choosing from a library of more than 400 titles.
Of course, tomorrow is also the launch of HTC’s enhanced headset, the Vive Pro, along with a new SteamVR 1.0 tracking bundle. So if you’re jumping into the world of Vive for the first time tomorrow, this is a good place to start.
