AMD Throws ts Holiday Bundle Hat in the Ring
It's not just AMD that has recently announced a game bundle for the holidays. Nvidia has its own "pick your path" game bundle as well. Which gives users the opportunity to pick one of three Ubisoft titles with a purchase of a GTX 900 series card. Far Cry 4, Assassin's Creed Unity and The Crew.
AMD's Never Settle Game bundle therefore might seem overwhelming but in a good way. You get to pick three game titles of a total of 25 games that range from spanking new Triple A titles to older best sellers and even indies.
The bundle includes recent titles such as Alien : Isolation, Star Citizen & Murdered : Soul Suspect. As well as older but still fun titles such as Tomb Raider and Saints Row III.
The Never Settle Gold tier is available with the purchase of any AMD R9 series card. Including the R9 295X2, 290X, 290, 280X, 285, 280, 270X and 270.
However unlike Never Settle Gold, Civilization Beyond Earth is limited only to the R9 290 series and isn't available with the entire R9 lineup.
AMD also has a Silver tier which includes all the games from Gold except Alien Isolation. This tier is available with purchase of the R7 265, 260X and 260.
One thing's for sure whether you buy an AMD or an Nvidia card, you'll definitely get a game or more to play for free this holiday season. For more details you can check out AMD's Civilization Beyond Earth game bundle page as well as the Never Settle site.
