In the market for a new Radeon? Well, good news: yet another title is about to join AMD's Never Settle game bundling deal.
That game is Saints Row IV, and AMD says it will soon be added to the Gold Reward tier of the Never Settle Forever promotion. That means you'll be able to get it—and two other games—free of charge with the purchase of a Radeon HD 7950, 7970, or 7970 GHz Edition. Assuming you shop at a participating retailer or e-tailer, of course.
The Gold Reward tier currently includes nine titles, and you can pick and choose which ones you want. The most recent games available today are Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon, which came out on April 30, and Tomb Raider, which was released on March 5. Saints Row IV is barely three weeks old, so it's going to freshen up the selection somewhat.
I haven't had a chance to play Saints Row IV yet, but AMD was kind of enough to give us a rough summary of what it's about:
Saints Row IV is an open world game that continues the story of the Third Street Saints by elevating their status to the highest level - the leaders of the free world. After a catastrophic alien invasion occurs where the aliens trasnport the Saints to a bizarro-Steelport simulation, you must fight to free humanity from alien grandaddy Zinyak's mental grasp by ultiziling gargantuan superpowers. Escape the simulation that's trapped the Saints crew, or die trying.
Not mentioned: the dubstep gun, which is on display in the video below.
The game actually sounds fun, too. Metacritic shows an average critic score of 86 and an average user score of 7.4, which is good for a retail game, and even better for a freebie.
