Nvidia recently revealed its new promotional game bundle pack. Buyer who pickup a qualified set of desktop and mobile graphics unit can choose a free game from Ubisoft.
There are three games which are available so far in its Pick Your Path game bundle- The Crew, Far Cry 4 and Assassin’s Creed Unity. The cards that are qualified to get these are GTX 970 and 980, along with GTX 780 and 780 Ti. Those who plan to purchase a gaming notebook with GTX 970M and 980M also qualify for the game bundle.
Duh! The game does utilize Nvidia Gameworks features such as HBAO+, PCSS, enhanced 4K support and DSR. You have to wonder what was Ubisoft thinking about its stand about 30 FPS “The Hobbit” movie comment, especially when they used Nvidia’s resources for the PC variant. You also have to wonder what was Nvidia’s reaction towards Ubisoft’s colourful comments back then. But to be fair, ‘The Crew’ for PC’s requirements are more down to Earth for a change.
Meanwhile, there is no confirmation from Indian management of the respected card making brands if they’ve started bundling newer units available in the market. Judging by the communications in the past, nobody knows what’s going on and after 1-2 months the games labeled with the game bundle starts to crop up in stores, unless older stocks aren’t cleared. Contact your favourite GPU makers via FB (and Nvidia India, probably they’ll assist if they can) for more information.
