NVIDIA Launches New Game Bundle: For Honor & Ghost Recon Wildlandsby Daniel Williams on January 31, 2017 9:00 AM EST

The gaming scene tends to be slow this time of the year, and some may still feel burned out from Christmas spending, others still feel like giving. Leading up to two more big budget releases that are fast approaching, NVIDIA has prepared another bundle for those considering an upgrade to their gaming hardware.
The “Prepare for Battle” game bundle is launching today. Anyone who purchases a GeForce GTX 1080, GTX 1070, or a PC or laptop equipped with these cards will have the option to download either Ubisoft’s For Honor or Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands for free.
For Honor is a fast paced single and multiplayer action game that pits together Knights, Samurai and Vikings in hand-to-hand combat, requiring tactical thinking and fast reflexes. At the other end of the technology spectrum we have Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands, the next step in a franchise that has been running for almost long enough to drive. ‘Wildlands’ is pitched as the very first military shooter in a massive open world that you can play entirely solo or in four-player co-op. For Honor will see release on February 14th, while Ghost Recon Wildlands will arrive on March 7th.

NVIDIA is also debuting a new, and hopefully easier, way to redeem codes through GeForce Experience. Now customers will no longer have to wade through sign up webpages but can simply enter their code within GeForce Experience itself and have their choice of game automatically added to their Uplay account. Though I imagine one would still need to be signed into GeForce Experience, which for some may make the difference moot.
We haven’t yet received news to how long this offer will run, though we will update here when we catch news of the end date. Meanwhile it is worth remembering to verify the participation of any vendors purchased from as NVIDIA likely will not give codes for purchases made from sellers that are not participating.

BrokenCrayons - Tuesday, January 31, 2017 - linkI think that Nvidia was, in keeping shared model numbers between mobile and desktop parts, trying to convey the idea that there was little to no difference in performance between the two card versions. NV has been chasing after closing the desktop-to-laptop performance gap for a few years now and changing the number of cores between the 1070s is an effective way to target the same level of GPU performance within the power and heat budget of each respective form factor. (NV has been pushing out slides with line and bar graphs attempting to demonstrate that narrowing gap.) It means the company was targeting framerates and game quality settings rather than raw GPU specs when they attempted to achieve that similarity across the two platforms.

You're not getting banned. But please stop writing random rants in the comments section. I like to keep the discussion at least vaguely related to the subject at hand.
lmcd - Tuesday, January 31, 2017 - linkHonestly I don't know why anyone would bring up the DRM that comes with these games when the drivers needed to play these games are so patent-encumbered that you've basically signed your life away before playing anyway.
But regardless, there's little chance that these games will change Nvidia's numbers.
Bullwinkle J Moose - Tuesday, January 31, 2017 - linkSorry Ryan
This IS the Coolest Site I've ever seen when posts go against the Corporate script though
Other sites require you sign your life away before posting and ban you immediately when you disagree with the Corporate viewpoint
Sorry, off-topic again!
............and back to the topic at hand,
Wish NVidia would let us choose among a wider selection of games
Sttm - Tuesday, January 31, 2017 - linkBOOOOOO UPlay, BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.
BrokenCrayons - Tuesday, January 31, 2017 - linkI'm not much of a fan of UPlay either.
