When two giants of Nvidia’s and Ubisoft’s stature join forces, the sky is the limit for what such an alliance can produce.

The GPU manufacturer and game publisher are looking to out-gun AMD’s own “Never Settle” gaming bundles by offering a wicked promo before the holiday shopping season gets underway.

According to this Nvidia blog post, a slew of high-end GeForce graphics cards will be sold along with free coupon codes that grant access to Ubisoft’s hottest new games. You’ll be able to take your pick from Assassin’s Creed Unity, Far Cry 4, and The Crew, none of which are out yet.

We weren’t kidding when we said this included some of Ubisoft’s freshest titles.

The cards included in the deal are the GeForce GTX 980, 970, 780 Ti, and 780. Laptops touting Nvidia GeForce GTX 980M or 970M graphics will also qualify.

Unity rolls out November 11 here in the states. The fourth installment in the action-adventure Far Cry series drops a week later, while the open-world racing-centric The Crew launches on December 2. Each will cost around $60 when bought separately.

It’s decision time, gamers. Which path will you choose? It’s not an easy call, but it’s good to know that you have time to think it through. The promo expires January 31, 2015, and is available while “supplies last.”

Also, it’s important to note that you’ll need to buy one of the qualifying GPUs and notebooks from authorized Nvidia e-tail and retail partners to get in on this deal. Amazon, Newegg, TigerDirect, and MicroCenter are all on the list, but Best Buy, for instance, isn’t. Keep that in mind.

Last but not least, don’t forget to redeem your digital game download codes by visiting the Uplay Shop and following the instructions detailed here.
