AMD announced on Monday, Feb. 4, the arrival of its "Never Settle: Reloaded" game bundle, the sequel to last year's highly popular "Never Settle" bundle.
With "Never Settle: Reloaded" Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) targets hardcore gamers looking to purchase a new graphics card.
"AMD knows gaming and in 2013 we plan to make a huge mark on the industry. Today we begin that journey by showing the world that the best PC game developers are AMD Gaming Evolved partners," said Matt Skynner, corporate vice president and general manager of AMD Graphics. "The 'Never Settle: Reloaded' bundle clearly stands apart from anything else in the market. Gaming has always been, and will remain, the core of the AMD Graphics strategy and success. In 2013, we plan to forge greater inroads into the gaming industry and it begins with packaging this year's biggest games with the best graphics hardware from AMD."
The new bundle offers up to six free games, four of which are among this year's most anticipated PC games: "BioShock Infinite" by 2K Games and Irrational Games, "Crysis 3" by Electronic Arts, "DmC Devil May Cry" by Capcom, and "Tomb Raider" by Square Enix. The bundle is available with AMD Radeon HD 7900 and HD 7800 Series graphics cards.
More precisely, those who purchase two AMD Radeon HD 7900 Series cards for use in a single gamer PC will get six games for free: Crysis 3, BioShock Infinite, Tomb Raider, Far Cry 3, Hitman: Absolution, and Sleeping Dogs.
Purchasing a single AMD Radeon HD 7900 Series card will bundle Crysis 3 and BioShock Infinite, while buying an AMD Radeon HD 7800 Series Card will pack BioShock Infinite and Tomb Raider for free. Interested buyers can also get DmC and BioShock Infinite with an AMMD Radeon HD 7800 Series card.
Tomb Raider is set to debut on March 5, while BioShock Infinite will follow on March 26. Crysis 3 launches on Feb. 19. DmC: Devil May Cry, meanwhile, is already out. AMD will give users a code once they register with them and gamers can use that code to download the games once they become available.
The previous bundle, "Never Settle," launched last fall with four games: Far Cry 3, Hitman: Absolution, Sleeping Dogs, and Medal of Honor amounting to $170 in free games with a graphics card purchase. AMD also gave away three games with a card purchase in the spring 2012. The company now wants to build on the success of previous bundles and further boost sales of its powerful graphics cards for hardcore gamers.
