Want a free game? Go purchase a new GeForce GTX 1070 or GTX 1080 card or system

Best graphics card for gaming
On Tuesday, Nvidia launched its latest game bundle offer for the GeForce GTX 1070 and GTX 1080 graphics cards: The “Prepare For Battle” giveaway. Customers who purchase one of these cards or a pre-built desktop or laptop with the graphics chip inside can receive Ubisoft’s For Honor or Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands for free.

To grab the free game, customers must first purchase a qualifying product on or after January 31 and then register the product with its manufacturer. For example, EVGA customers must create an account, register their new hardware, and then request a code for one of the free games. Once approved, that code will show up on EVGA’s promotional page under the “Collect Your Code” section.

However, EVGA’s method only applies to hardware purchased through its online store. Customers who purchase qualifying products from third-party sites like Amazon and Newegg will receive a game code through those outlets. If they don’t, customers are encouraged to contact the seller for more information about obtaining the free code.

With a code in hand, PC gamers must then visit Nvidia’s GeForce website to redeem it for the free game. Nvidia said on Tuesday that it revamped the process of redeeming codes so customers aren’t enduring through long sign-up pages. Instead, they can load up the GeForce Experience desktop client and enter the code inside. There the chosen game can be automatically added to the customer’s Uplay account as well.

For those who haven’t seen these yet, here are the system requirements and release dates for both PC games:
