Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel now free with high-end GeForces


— 10:47 AM on August 12, 2014

I think Nvidia has finally run out of Watch Dogs licenses to give out with GeForce graphics cards—but that's okay, because the company has just announced another bundle with a fresh new game.

The game is so new, in fact, that it's not out yet. Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel doesn't unlock until October 14, but as of today, you can get a key for it with the purchase of a GeForce GTX 770, 780, 780 Ti, or Titan Black graphics card from a participating vendor. According to the official promo page, participating vendors include:

  • Three e-tailers: Amazon, Newegg, and TigerDirect.
  • Eight system builders: Canada Computers, Digital Storm, Falcon Northwest, Maingear, Memory Express, Origin PC, V3 Gaming, and Velocity Micro.
  • And EVGA's own online store.

As always, the offer is available only for a "limited time." Since the deal covers only high-end, relatively low-volume GPUs, the supply of game keys may not run out too quickly. But then again, there's no telling how many keys are up for grabs to begin with.

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is currently in development at 2K Australia, with help from Gearbox. The game will be set between the first two Borderlands titles. In it, players will travel to Pandora's moon, and they'll apparently get front-row seats to Handsome Jack's transformation into the main villain from Borderlands 2. Nvidia says GeForce owners will be able to enjoy PhysX eye candy in the game, too. (Thanks to TR reader SH SOTN for the link.)
