Nvidia has been offering some interesting game bundles recently, putting in Assassin’s Creed 3 with the Geforce GTX650 Ti, offering up to $75 worth of in-game items on several free-to-play games with the Geforce GTX600 series, and bundling Metro: Last Light with the GTX660 and upwards.
Their latest stab at AMD’s Never Settle promotion is Splinter Cell: Blacklist – sadly, Nvidia does not officially offer this bundle to the SA market.
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.

|Geforce GTX Titan 6GB||No bundle offers|
|Geforce GTX690 4GB||No bundle offers|
|Geforce GTX760/770/780||Splinter Cell: Blacklist|

|Geforce GT640 and lower||No bundle offers|
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.
Unfortunately, it appears that Nvidia is not going to be offering this bundle to anyone not living in the following countries:
- North America
- Czech Republic
- United Kingdom
- Canada Serbia
- The Netherlands
So if you have a relative visiting somewhere overseas, make sure you change their flight tickets to any of these 23 destinations to get your bundle. Or you can just pay more for the same thing by buying the game separately. Thanks, Nvidia.
