Over the last couple of months, Nvidia and Ubisoft have been teaming up to run a ‘Prepare for Battle’ promotion. This essentially meant that anyone buying a GTX 1080 or a GTX 1070 would be able to redeem a free copy of either For Honor or Ghost Recon Wildlands. While this promo was previously reserved for high-end hardware, today, Nvidia has expanded it to include mid-range GPUs as well.
Going forward, those buying a GTX 1080Ti, GTX 1080, GTX 1070 or a GTX 1060 (3GB or 6GB) will be eligible for this deal. As Nvidia puts it, the GTX 1060 is the ‘ideal GPU’ for both of Ubisoft’s recent releases for those looking to play at 1080p/60 frames per second at high settings.
Both games included in this bundle also support Nvidia’s ANSEL technology. This screenshot tool paves the way for some incredible in-game photography as users can downsample captures from insanely high resolutions, adjust different effects and move the camera to get the best angle for the shot.
Aside from Ghost Recon Wildlands and For Honor, Ansel is also supported in Mass Effect: Andromeda, The Witcher 3, The Witness, Paragon, War Thunder, Watch Dogs 2, Obduction, Dishonored 2 and Mirror’s Edge Catalyst.
KitGuru Says: It’s nice to see deals like this expanded to include mid-range GPUs. At its price point, the GTX 1060 does seem to make the most sense for 1080p gaming in particular. Are any of you planning on grabbing a new GPU soon?
