As part of the Steam Summer Sale, HTC is offering a rare $50 discount on the Vive headset, along with a $50 Steam gift card to capitalize on VR deals during the sale. The bundle also includes the recently released Star Trek: Bridge Crew, and two older VR games.

If you’re looking to buy a Vive, this is likely the best official deal you’re going to find before the holiday season. HTC has been rather protective of the $800 price of the Vive, telling us recently that they believe the headset justifies the cost by offering the leading room-scale experience.

The Steam Sale Vive discount, which is valid through July 7th, drops the cost of the headset by $50 and nets you a $50 Steam gift card to buy content. The package also includes a one month free trial of Viveport Subscription, and a bundle of VR games: Star Trek: Bridge Crew (2017)Richie’s Plank Experience (2016), and Everest VR (2016).
