AMD Fury and Fury X Star Wars Battlefront Reward Extended to March 31
Back in November, when Star Wars Battlefront was originally released, AMD had launched a rewards campaign in connection with the new game from Electronic Arts. While the campaign was supposed to end one of these days, the company has now announced that they are extending the period to March 31.
For those of you who do not know, the semiconductor manufacturer is giving away a download code for the latest Star Wars game (PC version) for anyone who purchases either an AMD Radeon R9 Fury or an AMD Radeon R9 Fury X card.
The offer is being made under their AMD Rewards program and after the new announcement, you have about two and a half months more to save those $60 that you would otherwise spend on purchasing Star Wars Battlefront:
The campaign period is hereby extended to March 31, 2016 or when supplies of the free games are exhausted, whichever occurs first. AMD Unique ID codes must be redeemed for game codes prior to April 30, 2016.
Needless to say, even if you own the game already you could still claim a download code and maybe give it away to a friend as a gift.
Sadly the Radeon R9 Nano is not eligible for the offer and the reason for that is probably that AMD already discounted the card to $499.
As far as the extension in the Star Wars Battlefront campaign is concerned, one of the primary reasons why AMD has allowed a longer period is that competitors Nvidia has recently started a rewards campaign under which they are giving away copies of Rise of the Tomb Raider to customers who buy some of their GTX model cards.
