AMD Offers Free Star Wars Battlefront With Purchase Of New R9 Fury GPUs
While AMD has offered free game rewards in the past with GPU purchases, the offered games have been somewhat lackluster and it has been quite a while since the offerings were updated. However, with the release of Star Wars Battlefront, the hardware manufacturer is back in the rewards business and is offering a free copy of the much awaited Star Wars shooter on purchases of its newly released Fiji powered GPU.
The offer is somewhat similar to what Nvidia offers with its game bundles, a free AAA game on the purchase of a newly released GPU, for a limited time of course. In the case of Battlefront, the reward window is from 17th November to 31st January, or until the game codes are in stock. The reward will have to be claimed before 29th February.
As expected, the offer only applies to specific GPUs models that are purchased within the reward window (although sometimes retailers do accommodate customers if the purchase was made a few days or weeks before the promotion started).
Interested gamers will have to purchase a R9 Fury graphics card or a pre made system that comes with the Fury graphics card from select retailers to be eligible for the reward. Similar to Nvidia excluding out GPUs like Titan X, the AMD promo doesn’t apply to R9 Nano and Fury X GPUs.
The Fury GPU is priced at $549 so a $60 AAA game for free sounds like a pretty good deal.
Star Wars Battlefront released on PS4, Xbox One and PC on 17th November to generally favorable reviews.
