HTC's Vive VR headset is getting a dose of radiation in the form of Fallout 4 VR.

Fallout 4 is a first-person shooter with an emphasis on RPG elements, open-world gameplay, and gore, tons of gore. Fallout 4 is coming in its entirety to VR, and for those picking up a HTC Vive, you'll be able to get in on the action for free.

Announced earlier today, HTC stated that all purchases of HTC Vive headsets from the company's website or via an authorized retailer will receive a free code for Fallout 4 VR ahead of the game's launch on December 12, 2017.

Fallout 4 VR is not a VR "experience," it's essentially the full game, with the look functionality bound to your headset, rather than a mouse or joystick. The combat engines, crafting systems, and base building mechanics have been reworked for VR too, to make them more intuitive.

Joel Breton, GM of Vive Studios had this to say about the partnership.

"Fallout 4 VR is the most anticipated title for VR this holiday, and the game development team at Bethesda Game Studios is delivering on the promise with a full-length AAA open-world game that takes advantage of Vive's incredible room-scale immersion for a mind-blowing experience in the Wasteland. The promise of a game with near endless content, including hundreds of locations, characters, and quests, fully playable in VR, is something that we have been focused on providing for the VR gaming community. We are now thrilled to provide this incredible game to new Vive owners and eagerly look forward to game's launch on Vive this December." 

The freedom of exploring the wasteland comes alive like never before when experienced using Vive's superior room-scale technology. Vive's submillimeter tracking for responsiveness and accuracy makes it the most immersive way to experience Fallout 4.
