This will not come as a surprise to many people. Tomb Raider is one huge franchise and again Nvidia has put it in a bundle along with GPUs and Notebooks. The promotion offer starts on January 7, and is applicable on purchase of all GTX 970, GTX 980, GTX 980Ti and all Notebooks running either of these cards.
This is probably the first time we are covering such news, because we think that the fact of getting a game with a GPU makes it more valuable and also adds to the marketing value. When you see Nvidia bundling their GPUs with huge franchises like The Witcher, Metal Gear Solid and Assassin’s Creed, that does have mental impact. This also adds to marketing of the GPUs because you are getting a full priced game free with it, and who says no to free stuff. Many of you may still go for an AMD GPU because you have the knowhow of PC hardware, but to the general public seeing big names is what matters and many people will be looking to pick up the game on first day. By any chance, if you don’t want to keep the game, you can always sell it for some extra bucks.
So if you are building a gaming PC or are just looking for a mid-high ranged GPU to add to your existing PC and are a fan of Lara Croft, you should definitely consider this option. Let’s hope that we get a good port of the game on PC. Adios.
