Latest GTX 1070 and GTX 1080 game bundle lets gamers choose their path

Nvidia might be trying to sway some of those people who were going to wait on Vega to go for a graphics card upgrade a little early. The company is running one of its famous game bundles right now, and while you only get one game, the choices are pretty good. New buyers of a GeForce GTX 1070 or GTX 1080 graphics card—or a laptop equipped with one of those cards—can grab a free copy of Ubisoft's For Honor or Ghost Recon: Wildlands.

For those unfamiliar with the titles, Ghost Recon: Wildlands is a fully open-world title set in an alternate Bolivia that has been thrown into chaos due to the overarching influence of the Santa Blanca drug cartel. Players take on the role of one of the eponymous special-forces Ghosts, and can extensively customize their character and weapons before setting off to perform various activities in the game's 21 provinces, in a game somewhat like a military-themed GTA Online.

For Honor is also military-themed, but the setting is some thousand years earlier. The core game is a third-person medieval combat simulator with an emphasis on duels. Both single- and multi-player modes are available, with the showcase being a "Domination" mode where player-controlled heroes wade through waves of minions (both friendly and opposed) to battle other players and capture key battlefield locations. The title borrows fighting-game and MOBA tropes to create a pretty unique gameplay experience. I've been in several beta test events for the game and heartily recommend it to anyone who likes either of those types of games

As with past game bundles, folks who purchased their graphics cards before the bundle was in effect are not eligible for the promotion. Likewise, cards bought from a seller that isn't participating in the promotion are not eligible. You can check the full list of partners at the bottom of this page. Fortunately, Newegg is participating and has a whole bunch of GeForces ready to pair up with game codes.
