You could probably tell by the weather but it’s summer again and that means opening your wallet for the Steam Summer Sale which begins today. While there’s plenty of virtual reality (VR) titles on discount for those with a head-mounted display (HMD), if you’re looking at purchasing the HTC Vive there’s an additional offer to be had.
Today, HTC Vive has announced that the headset has been discounted to $749.99 USD/ £709 GBP (including free shipping) for the Summer Sale, and that anyone who purchases a new HMD will also receive a $50 Steam gift card that can be redeemed and used immediately to beef up their content library.
HTC Vive’s offer will run for the duration of the Steam Summer Sale, from today until 10am PT on 5th July 2017.
Several Vive Studios videogames are included in the sale – also found on Viveport – with Virtual Sports – 75% off ($
19.99 > $4.99); Arcade Saga – 75% off ($ 19.99 > $4.99); Remembering Pearl Harbor – 75% off ($ 9.99 >$2.49); Knockout League – 40% off ($ 19.99 > $11.99)and MakeVR – 75% off ($ 19.99 > $4.99).
For new owners, remember that you can sign up to Viveport Subscription for free for one month, netting you five titles to play at your leisure. Plus Star Trek: Bridge Crew is available for free until 30th June 2017. VRFocus reviewed the title earlier this month, giving it 4 stars, saying: “The production values are top notch making Star Trek: Bridge Crew one of those rare VR experiences that feels like a AAA title, and likely part of most VR gamers’ collections.”
