Earlier this month, AMD added Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon to its Never Settle Reloaded game bundle. The addition is retroactive, which means that both new buyers and folks who've redeemed Never Settle Reloaded bundles in the past are eligible to receive the game for free.
We're now on the eve of Blood Dragon's release, and as it turns out, AMD and Ubisoft are running a little behind on code distribution. Some of the folks eligible for a copy may get their code right away, but others may have to wait as much as a week or so. Robert Hallock, AMD's Head of PR for Gaming & Enthusiast Graphics, explains:
[C]ode distribution begins today, running for approximately seven days thereafter as we work with Ubisoft to deploy this huge batch of codes to AMD Radeon customers. Codes will be delivered by email to the addresses customers provided when they redeemed their bundle codes, and customers should make sure they're still opted in for AMD emails so that we can send those codes without violating the US CAN-SPAM act.
Hallock adds that, to ensure customers receive the code in their inbox, they should add email@example.com to their spam filter whitelists.
Here's hoping folks who were quivering with anticipation for the 80s-insipired cheesy badness of Blood Dragon can manage to wait until they get their codes.
