NVIDIA Updates Spring GeForce Game Bundle - Adds Batman: Arkham Knightby Ryan Smith on May 5, 2015 1:15 PM EST

Back in March NVIDIA launched their Witcher 3 game bundle promotion, which saw game codes for the forthcoming ARPG packed with a number of GeForce GTX 900 series cards. With that promotion set to expire later this month, today NVIDIA is announcing that they have renewed and updated their game bundle promotion.
Launching today is the Two Times The Adventure bundle, which sees the Witcher 3 joined by the forthcoming Batman: Arkham Knight on the GeForce GTX 980 and GTX 970. Batman: Arkham Knight is the 3rd Batman game created by series developer Rocksteady, and the 4th game in the series overall. The latest entry in the series is still Unreal Engine 3 powered, but this marks the first time the game has been targeted solely at PCs and what are now the current-generation consoles. Meanwhile as a traditional showcase for NVIDIA’s GameWorks technologies, Arkham Knight will once again be tapping NVIDIA’s PhysX libraries for cloth, turbulence, and destruction.
This latest update will see just the GTX 980 and GTX 970 receiving both Arkham Knight and the Witcher 3, while the GTX 960 and higher-end GTX 900M parts will continue to receive just the Witcher 3, indicating that NVIDIA is especially keen to improve the value proposition on their higher-end desktop cards. Meanwhile notably absent entirely is the GeForce GTX Titan X, which launched back in March. NVIDIA bundles that include GTX Titans are hit-and-miss, and with little competitive pressure for their Titan cards more often than not NVIDIA excludes them from bundles, as is the case here.
|NVIDIA Current Game Bundles|
|GeForce GTX Titan X||None|
|GeForce GTX 980/970||Batman: Arkham Knight +
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
|GeForce GTX 960||The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt|
|GeForce GTX 750/750Ti||None|
|GeForce GTX 980M/970M||The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt|
|GeForce GTX 965M/800M Series||None|
Finally, as always, these bundles are being distributed in voucher from, with retailers and etailers providing vouchers with qualifying purchases. So buyers will want to double check whether their purchase includes a voucher for either of the above deals. Checking NVIDIA’s terms and conditions, the program is valid in all regions except China, and the codes from this bundle are good through July 31st, so it looks like this will bundle will run for just short of 2 months. The Witcher 3 will be distributed DRM-free through GOG, meanwhile Arkham Knight will be distributed through Steam.

WithoutWeakness - Tuesday, May 5, 2015 - linkI guess Nvidia figures that if you have the money to buy a Titan X then you have the money to spend on games and they don't need to try to sweeten the deal. It would still be nice to get a pair of new games with your $1000 purchase but they don't anticipate anyone seriously complaining other than people who can't afford it.
TemjinGold - Tuesday, May 5, 2015 - linkWell most people on the fence about upgrading and waiting for 390/X probably aren't in the market for Titan X...
chizow - Tuesday, May 5, 2015 - linkYeah, but Nvidia has always used these game promos as incentives to help sell certain SKUs. At this point, given how well Titan X has sold (constantly in and out of stock at Nvidia.com and all major retailers), they don't think Titan X needs any incentives but I agree, it would have been nice to get a couple codes with the purchase.
Same thing happened with 970/980 launch actually, there was a Borderlands PS promo going on for the 700 series and the 970/980 weren't included. Only months later, was the Pick-Your-Path promo launched and the 970/980 included. Newegg did right by me though, and gave me 2 codes for the 2x980s I bought at launch.
I have read of similar reports that some retailers are doing the same this time around, so it may be worth pinging them if you bought a card recently.
meacupla - Tuesday, May 5, 2015 - linkI remember going for FarCry4 in the last pack.
Seemed the least buggy at the time, but I haven't played it much since then.
It just lacks a proper coop.
