GPU vendors are pining for your holiday dollars this month. AMD's Radeon R9 290 turned up for $230 at Newegg last week, and now, Nvidia has announced a new game bundle that comprises three of this season's hottest blockbusters:
As part of our "Pick Your Path" promotion kicking off this week, gamers who buy a qualifying GeForce GTX GPU can add The Crew, Far Cry 4 or Assassin's Creed Unity to their library for free. GPUs that qualify for the offer are GeForce GTX 980, 970, 780 Ti or 780, or a notebook with GeForce GTX 980M or 970M.
Assassin's Creed Unity, Far Cry 4, and The Crew are all published by Ubisoft, and all three games use Nvidia's GameWorks toolkit to deliver extra PC eye candy—including, in some cases, Nvidia-exclusive effects like TXAA antialiasing.
According to the official Pick Your Path page, the bundle is available at e-tailers like Amazon, Newegg, TigerDirect, and Micro Center. A handful of system builders as well as EVGA's online store are also participating.
This promotion echoes AMD's recent Never Settle bundles, which have also involved choosing from a selection of triple-A games. The current Never Settle Space Edition deal includes Alien: Isolation and Star Citizen among quite a few others. Folks who purchase Radeon R9-series cards get three games, while buyers of R7-series cards get one or two games, depending on the exact model.
