AMD’s Never Settle game bundle promotion is back and it’s bigger than ever. The latest Never Settle Reloaded is a promotion that’s basically worldwide and brings three upcoming, soon-to-be released games to the table: BioShock Infinite, Crysis 3 and Tomb Raider. In the main spotlight of the promotion, AMD is handing out download codes for 2 games with every purchase of their HD 7800 or HD7900 series graphics cards. With the HD7800 series, you’ll get Tomb Raider and BioShock Infinite, while with any 7900-series graphics card, you’ll get BioShock Infinite and Crysis 3. For some regions in Asia, Tomb Raider gets substituted with Devil May Cry, a hack and slash video game that came out in America, Japan, Australia and more last month but only comes out in some parts of Asia on February 28th.
For gamers new to the PC gaming scene, it works this way: AMD designs the actual graphics card but most cards you’ll see in the market are not AMD branded. Instead, you’ll see computer and electronic makers like Asus, XFX, MSI, Gigabyte, Sapphire and the like putting their names on the graphics cards. As long as the numbers in the series matches the model names in this promotion (example: the XFX Radeon HD 7870, which falls under AMD’s HD 7800 series umbrella), you’re good to go with the free games.
You’ll get the download codes for the games, usually via the retailer or website you bought the graphics card from (so check that the place you’re buying from is participating), but you’ll still have to wait until the game gets released to download and play them. Crysis 3 comes out February 19th, Tomb Raider comes out March 5th and BioShock Infinite will be released on March 26th.
Crysis 3 will be downloadable via the Origin game management software while other games will be handed out via Valve’s Steam platform.
AMD is also promoting CrossFire setups (dual graphics cards) by offering 6 free games with the purchase of two HD 7900 series graphics cards. That’s Crysis 3, Tomb Raider and BioShock Infinite, plus 3 games released late last year: Sleeping Dogs, Hitman Absolution and Far Cry 3.
A third promotion is also available, but it’s a UK and Asus exclusive offer. If you buy the powerful Asus ROG ARES II graphics card in the UK, you’ll get the 6 games above plus Deus Ex: Human Revolution and THQ’s Nexuiz as well.
