At the beginning of May, HTC Vive’s retail platform announced a new offer for owners of Oculus Rift and (at the time) the upcoming Rift S, gifting them 2 free months of Viveport Infinity. Today, Oculus owners can now redeem the offer.
It doesn’t matter if you are a new or existing member of Viveport Infinity, both will have access to the offer which will allow access to hundreds of virtual reality (VR) titles. For new Oculus members, all you need to do is sign-up for the free 14-day trial in June. In your account, you’ll find a 2-month Infinity code under the ‘Redeem’ section which you’ll want to use before the trial ends. As for existing Infinity customers, your account will be automatically updated today states Viveport.
When it comes to Valve Index it seems the terms and conditions have slightly changed. Previously, just like Oculus Rift and Rift S customers, Valve Index owners had to sign-up by 30th June. With Valve Index only available from 28th June this left only a short window of availability. Plus there was the factor regarding the first batch of Valve Index shipments selling out rather rapidly, so customers who didn’t place their orders the moment the pre-order page went live will have to wait until at least August/September to receive their headsets.
Because of this Viveport has stated: “This offer will extend to Valve Index owners who will be able to redeem their two-free months of Viveport Infinity later this summer as headsets become available.”
Once the free offer concludes and if you want to continue using Viveport Infinity then the monthly cost is $12.99 USD/£12.99 GBP. With that, you gain unlimited access to Viveport Infinity’s growing library of VR videogames and apps, 10% off content once per month at checkout, as well as exclusive offers and discounts on weekend deals. Or you could go for the yearly $99/£99 deal. This is a 36% saving on the monthly subscription plus all the same perks.
Viveport Infinity only arrived this April. To add to the platform offerings Windows Mixed Reality headsets will be welcomed onto the service this week.
