Now Aussies too can pretend to be Aiden Pearce

NVIDIA have finally announced their quarterly GeForce game bundle for Australia-New Zealand, being Watch Dogs unsuprisingly.

Unlike AMD's Never Settle Forever, NVIDIA's game bundles are region specific and do not launch simulatenously. ANZ bundles are typically delayed and certain titles may not be avalible. For instance the outgoing GeForce bundle offered the Unreal Engine 4 powered 'Daylight' but this component of the game bundle was not offered here, only the free to play components were.

Ubisoft's Watch Dogs is one of the most anticpiated AAA games from the past twelve months, if you have heard of it already we do not need to repeat the hype once again, especially since press such as CNET, Destructoid and MTV have praised the game pre-release.

The Watch Dogs bundle continues NVIDIA's long standing relationship with Ubisoft, going as back back as the original Splinter Cell Trilogy days, providing not only game bundles for Specific or all Add-In-Card Partners, but also taking advantage of 3D instructions and features in game. For instance Splinter Cell Pandora Tomorrow and Chaoes Theory leveraging bump mapping and Shader Model 3/Directx 9c respectively. Matrox boards could not run these properly for instance.

Ten years later the trend continues with GeForce's Secret Sauce recipie combining HBAO (Horrizon-based ambient occlusion) and TXAA (Temporal Anti-Aliasing) to the Watchdogs Soup.


Gamers must also ensure they purchase one of the above cards from a particpating retailer who will issue the game code. The game code can be redeemed for a Ubisoft Play CDKEY via NVIDIA's redemption form which is then submited into Ubi's store or Play client to activate the game. This is the same procedure gamers are familar with when redeeming AMD Never Settle or Intel Gaming promotional codes.
