AMD has announced a new GPU gaming bundle. The new 'Raise the Game' bundle consists of not just one but three new PC games. Buyers of the AMD Radeon RX Vega, RX 580 or RX 570 graphics cards bought from qualifying retailers during the qualifying time frame (as long as codes are still available) can claim Assassin's Creed Odyssey, Strange Brigade, and Star Control: Origins - for free.
Of the games on offer Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed Odyssey is the biggest, from the very well known franchise. It has been mentioned twice in HEXUS news this year. Ahead of E3 it was teased, and was a big part of the Ubisoft event as a 'world premiere' when E3 kicked off. Assassin's Creed Odyssey is set in ancient Greece and allows you to play as Spartan heroes Alexios or Kassandra. The game launches on PC, Xbox One and PS4 on the 5th October. If you pre-order this title it would cost $59.99.
Strange Brigade comes from Rebellion Software, makers of the Aliens vs. Predator and the Sniper Elite series. It is designed with 4-player co-op in mind (like Left 4 Dead, says GameSpot) and in the game you will work to overcome unique challenges and trials in the vein of a pulpy 1930s action-adventure film. It is set for release on PC, Xbox One and PS4 on the 28th August. Pre-purchasing this title costs $39.99.
Star Control: Origins is a space role-playing game in which you command Earth's first interstellar starship on a mission to save the Earth from hostile alien empires. You will explore new and exotic worlds, meet alien civilizations, indulge in pulse pounding combat, and discover rich interstellar history during your journey. Developed by Stardock, the game is set for release on PC on the 20th September. Pre-purchasing this title costs $35.99.
Adding the above prices together comes to about $136 which represents a very good value bundle, especially with the lower priced graphics cards in this promotion.
