Every six months, give or take, AMD usually looks to update the titles offered as part of its ‘Raise the Game’ GPU bundle promotion. – The concept of this deal, for those of you not familiar with it, is rather simple. If you purchase one of their qualifying graphics cards, through an approved retail partner, you can get a code for a free (and generally pretty big) gaming release!
With the latest update to the promotion being somewhat overdue, however, there has been more than a little curiosity as to what they might have been introducing next. Following an official announcement on their website, however, AMD has now formally confirmed the new ‘Raise the Game’ bundle deal with consumers being able to potentially get (or pick from) two upcoming titles!
AMD Raise the Game!
As part of the promotion, AMD has confirmed that (in the very near future) the purchase of seemingly any Radeon 6000 graphics card (from an approved retailer) will allow the customer to apply and receive a free code for either Sniper Elite 5 or the upcoming, and highly anticipated, Saints Row reboot (expected to release in August this year).
Now this promotion will, of course, vary depending on exactly what GPU you purchase. For more higher-end models, such as the 6800 XT for example, it does appear that AMD will give away copies of both titles whereas more entry-level focused models (such as the 6600 XT) may be limited to either a choice between the two or simply having one mandated.
Any way you look at this though, if you’re planning to buy a Radeon 6000 GPU in the near future, a free AAA game getting bundled with it is not to be sniffed at!
Where Can I Learn More?
As noted above, this isn’t technically a ‘full-blown’ announcement by AMD. They have not confirmed exactly when this new promotion will officially launch and, overall, I suspect that they’ve only announced this just because it was so overdue. – If you do, however, want to learn more about it, you can check out the official (and newly updated) ‘Raise the Game’ website via the link here!
