HTC Vive has always had the subscription service Viveport, which allows users to pay a monthly fee that grants them access to five VR game titles per month. During a CES press conference the company announced Vivieport Infinity, the platform’s first unlimited subscription service in what amounts to one of the biggest moves in virtual reality games.
This new service will take the videogame cap off and allow members to explore Viveport’s library of VR experiences with unrestricted access, which actually helps the member save money. There are over 500 games that members can play and download in the Viveport Infinity library with no restrictions.
“Today, we’re announcing our next step in Viveport’s evolution with Viveport Infinity,” said Rikard Steiber, President of Viveport. “When we first launched our subscription service, we gave consumers the ability to try 5 titles a month. Now with Viveport Infinity, we’re offering our members the best value in VR content with 100x more choice, all at one low price.”
Viveport Infinity isn’t available yet to members and HTC Vive will be launching the service as part of its annual Vive Day celebrations in April. Viveport Infinity will be obtainable through all current and future Vive devices, as well as the Oculus Rift and other devices in the Wave Eco-system.
If you are new to the Viveport Subscription service, all new members get a 14-day free trial period. After the free trial is up members have three options on services, a 3-month plan for $19.99, a 6-month plan for $39.99 or a 12-month plan for $79.99. Currently the price for Viveport Infinity’s monthly membership has not been announced and will likely be released during its reveal in April.
During their CES press conference HTV Vive also revealed the HTC Vive Pro Eye, a new enterprise-focused headset, the Vive Cosmos with inside-out tracking, and the Vive Reality System.
