We received this press release today and thought it was worth noting. We’ve brought you coverage of AMD’s Never Settle bundles and now it’s NVIDIA’s turn. While it’s not a large multiple-game bundle, it’s nice to see NVIDIA including an actual game instead of some easily spent and not really tangible free to play game credit.
NVIDIA INVITES YOU TO INFILTRATE
TOM CLANCY’S SPLINTER CELL® BLACKLIST™
SANTA CLARA, Calif.—July 9, 2013—NVIDIA today announced it is working with Ubisoft to deliver the most dramatic and intense gaming experience possible for Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell® Blacklist™. And starting today, gamers who purchase a GeForce GTX 660, 660 Ti, 670, 680, 760, 770, or 780 from a participating partner will receive a free copy of Splinter Cell Blacklist Deluxe Edition for PC, which will be released on August 20, 2013 in North America.
NVIDIA engineers are working closely with the Ubisoft Toronto development team to incorporate an array of cutting-edge gaming technologies for Splinter Cell Blacklist including Direct X tessellation, NVIDIA HBAO+, TXAA antialiasing and surround technologies to ensure gamers can experience smooth frame rates and awesome visuals in all of their covert missions.
In Splinter Cell Blacklist, Sam Fisher returns as leader of 4th Echelon, an elite counter-terrorism unit armed with a new mandate to hunt down the masterminds behind The Blacklist, a series of deadly escalating attacks on U.S. interests. To stop the Blacklist countdown, gamers will choose the best way to face any challenge by tapping into Sam’s arsenal of lethal skills and training. The biggest game in the award-winning series, Splinter Cell Blacklist features an immersive single player story, distinct co-op missions, and the return of the legendary Spies Vs. Mercs multiplayer mode; all supported by a universal economy and customization system that allows players to completely customize their game experience.
For a full list of participating partners, please visit: http://www.geforce.com/landing-page/free-splinter-cell-blacklist. This offer is good only until December 31, 2013, or until The Blacklist countdown is eradicated, whichever comes first.
They also sent along a screenshot, which looks pretty sweet.
As mentioned, starting today, this game is included with most cards in NVIDIA’s lineup (GeForce GTX 660, 660 Ti, 670, 680, 760, 770, or 780). The game isn’t released yet and is slated for August 20, 2013, but people who buy one of those cards can be among the first to play it.
