And the great game bundling war continues. This time, it's Nvidia that has gone on the offensive. The company announced this morning that, starting today, Ubisoft's Splinter Cell Blacklist Deluxe Edition will be bundled with GeForce GTX 660 and better graphics cards at participating retailers.
The promotion applies to the GeForce GTX 660, GTX 660 Ti, GTX 670, GTX 680, GTX 760, GTX 770, and GTX 780. (The GeForce GTX 690 and Titan aren't covered, apparently.) Nvidia's announcement says the offer is good through December 31 or "until The Blacklist countdown is eradicated, whichever comes first." The official promotion page for North America says bundles will be available "for a limited time or while supplies last."
On top of all that, Nvidia says it's teamed up with Ubisoft to pack the PC version of Splinter Cell Blacklist full of eye candy and GeForce-specific optimizations. Here's the word from the press release:
NVIDIA engineers are working closely with the Ubisoft Toronto development team to incorporate an array of cutting-edge gaming technologies for Splinter Cell Blacklist including Direct X tessellation, NVIDIA HBAO+, TXAA antialiasing and surround technologies to ensure gamers can experience smooth frame rates and awesome visuals in all of their covert missions.
Splinter Cell Blacklist is due out on August 20 in the U.S. and Canada. For more information on the game, check out the official website here.
