Nvidia’s recently announced partnership with Ubisoft to bundle Splinter Cell: Blacklist with select Geforce 600 and 700 series cards left many confused, as there were only 23 countries on the list of participating regions.

Nvidia has now confirmed to MyGaming that the Splinter Cell bundle will apply to buyers in South Africa, and that there are more countries worldwide that will be eligible for code redemption. Codes are distributed via e-mail just like AMD’s Never Settle bundle, and redeeming them can be done through the Geforce website.

Blacklist will ship on 20 August 2013 and will carry a host of Nvidia-only technologies such as HBAO+, TXAA antialiasing and out-of-the-box support for Nvidia Surround and 3D Vision. Its not part of Nvidia’s The Way Its Meant To be Played campaign, but Nvidia has been providing engineering resources to Ubisoft as part of the deal.

Bundle offering
Geforce GTX Titan 6GB No bundle offers
Geforce GTX690 4GB No bundle offers

Geforce GTX660/660 Ti/670/680 Splinter Cell: Blacklist

Nvidia is discontinuing the offer to bundle Metro: Last Light with its graphics cards at participating retailers and will move straight on to Blacklist. The GTX Titan and GTX690 are ineligible for the bundle deal, while the GTX650 series continues to be bundled with the $75 value offer for free-to-play games like Hawken, World of Tanks and Planetside 2, although this only applies to the US, Canada and Europe.
