Over the years, AMD has managed to put together some excellent game bundles for hardware buyers. Earlier this year, we saw some Ryzen CPUs and Radeon GPUs sold with free codes for The Division 2, Devil May Cry V and Resident Evil 2. Now just in time for the holiday season, AMD’s ‘raise the game’ bundle has launched, swapping out the older games and offering new options to choose from.
If you buy an RX 5700 XT, RX 5700, RX 590, RX 580 or an RX 570, then you will get a code for three months of Xbox Game Pass for PC and a choice between Borderlands 3 or Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint. If you buy a Radeon VII, RX Vega series GPU or an RX 560, then you get three months of Xbox Game Pass for PC, which should be more than long enough to play through Gears 5, Age of Empires 2: Definitive Edition and The Outer Worlds- which are all available on Game Pass at launch.
If you're making the jump to a 3rd Gen Ryzen processor soon, then there are also bundles for you. Getting a Ryzen 9 3000 series CPU or a Ryzen 7 3800X will get you codes for The Outer Worlds, Borderlands 3 and three months of Xbox Game Pass for PC. If you grab a Ryzen 3700X, 3600X, 2700X or a 2700 CPU, then you get to choose between one of those two games and enjoy three months of Game Pass.
Finally, the Ryzen 5 3600, 3400G and older 2nd Gen Ryzen 5 processors also come with three months of Game Pass but no additional game codes.
KitGuru Says: As far as hardware game bundles go, this is certainly one of the better ones, although it is odd to see Radeon VII relegated to the lower tier considering it is still a high-end GPU. Are any of you planning to pick up some new AMD hardware before the end of the year?
