As promised, AMD has kicked off its massive Battlefield 4 giveaway on Facebook. The giveaway involves 1,000 license codes for the game, and entering is pretty straightforward—all you need to do is click a button or two on AMD's Gaming Evolved Facebook page.
Here are the instructions, straight from the contest announcement post:
Join the Red Team and like this Facebook announcement post before December 2nd at 12pm EST for your chance to win 1 of 1000 Battlefield 4 game codes! http://a.pgtb.me/x06Hp9 Already a member? Like this Facebook post announcement to be entered! A random draw to choose the winners will be held on December 3rd. Rules and conditions: http://www.amd.com/BF4CodeGiveaway
Seems simple enough, right? Of course, the rules and conditions do specify that participants must be at least 17 years old, and they say residents of Florida and New York aren't eligible to enter. (Folks in Cuba, North Korea, Syria, Sudan, Iran, and China can't participate, either.)
Giving away a thousand copies of a game like Battlefield 4 is a pretty generous move by AMD. It may help ease some of the frustration surrounding the company's BF4 bundling offer, as well. AMD announced earlier this month that all R9-series cards would come with a free copy of the game; however, the offer didn't apply retroactively to previous purchases, and AMD later revealed that only some cards from some vendors would actually come with BF4. Those shopping for new cards can now find BF4 bundled with a small handful of R9 270, R9 270X, R9 280X, and R9 290, and R9 290X variants.
