If you’re a PC gamer who hasn’t updated his rig in some time, chances are that you might be in the mood to upgrade some components. Microsoft and NVIDIA have teamed up to give you an incentive to upgrade the graphics card of your rig, as long as you buy one from the latter. If you purchase the two graphics cards mentioned below from NVIDIA, you will get Gears of War 4 free.
Those who purchase the NVIDIA GTX 1070 or GTX 1080 graphics cards from NVIDIA either on their own, inside a laptop or as part of a gaming machine will receive a free copy of Gears of War 4.
Since Gears of War 4 is compatible with Xbox Play Anywhere this means that customers will receive a copy of the game on both PC and Xbox One. Talk about value for money!
Bear in mind that this is a limited time promotion so interested people only have until October 30th to take advantage of this promotion and bag a copy of Gears of War 4 for free.
If you know your Xbox facts, you will certainly be aware that the Xbox One uses GPUs from AMD and not NVIDIA so you might find it a bit odd that Redmond is teaming up with NVIDIA on this. However, there has been speculation recently about Microsoft shifting to NVIDIA graphics processors with the powerful Xbox codenamed Project Scorpio that will be unveiled later this year.
Gears of War 4 is going to be released for Xbox One and PC on October 11th.
