Nvidia has announced that gamers purchasing a GeForce GTX 770, 780, 780 Ti, or Titan Black will be eligible for a free copy of 2K Australia's eagerly-anticipated first-person shooter, Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel!

The promotion, which began yesterday on August 12, will run "for a limited time or while supplies last" and will offer eligible GeForce buyers a digital download code that can be used to obtain the game via Steam after its release on October 14.

Set between the first and second Borderlands games, The Pre-Sequel! tells the story of Handsome Jack and his descent into villainy. Naturally, the narrative will include high-octane action and an array of new weapons, including new vehicles designed to offer "more levels of destructive mayhem." Sounds like the Borderlands we know.

It's a shame Nvidia hasn't extended the reach of the promotion to mid-range cards - GeForce GTX 760 or lower don't apply - but the freebie gives added incentive to anyone contemplating a high-end graphics upgrade.

As always, the promotion is only available from participating retailers. Here in the UK, the list includes Scan Computers, Overclockers UK, Novatech, Dabs and Ebuyer.
