Nvidia has updated its Free-to-Play (F2P) bundle from February for buyers of GeForce GTX 650 GPUs and systems, and buyers of GeForce GTX 700M notebooks. The new offer gives qualifying customers £50 in-game currency, split evenly between the games Dungeons & Dragons Neverwinter, Marvel Heroes, and Warframe. Meanwhile buyers of GeForce GTX 660, 660 Ti, 670, 680, 760, 770 and 780 NVIDIA graphics cards will be able to get hold of Batman: Arkham Origins for free.

Fancy £50 to spend in Dungeons & Dragons Neverwinter, Marvel Heroes, and Warframe?

Nvidia’s GeForce GTX Summer 2013 F2P bundle nets you £50 split evenly between these “exciting” free titles. The money can be used to spend on “new characters, new classes, new weapons, helpful pets, and a variety of cosmetic upgrades,” suggests the Nvidia blog.

Cryptic Studios’ Dungeons & Dragons Neverwinter is a traditionally-styled massively multiplayer online role-playing game. Nvidia notes that the game “runs flawlessly with max settings and 8xMSAA enabled, giving players the best possible experience,” on a GeForce GTX 650 card.

Marvel Heroes by Gazillion Entertainment is “an expansive free-to-play massively multiplayer online action role-playing game, similar in style to Diablo and Torchlight,” with all your favourite Marvel characters. The game is in the isometric style with low system requirements. Nvidia suggests you spend your free cash on any of your favourite heroes you don’t already own; like Iron Man, Thor, or The Hulk.

Finally Warframe is a co-op third person shooter which focuses solely on Player Versus Enemy (PvE) combat. Apparently that’s an unusual game style for the F2P model. The game is said to offer “mystery and revelation, the kinds of things you traditionally get in a PvE or story-based experience.”

Make sure you buy your GeForce GTX 650 GPU or system, or GeForce GTX 700M notebook from a qualifying dealer to get this £50 of F2P benefits.

Batman: Arkham Origins GeForce GTX bundle

This new bundle replaces the previous Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Blacklist Deluxe Edition, announced in July, which replaced February’s Metro: Last Light offer. Nvidia says that Batman: Arkham Origins is “one of October’s most anticipated titles”. This new game will be bundled with GeForce GTX 660, 660 Ti, 670, 680, 760, 770 and 780 NVIDIA graphics cards.

Nvidia are keen to point out that the new Batman game features “NVIDIA and PC-exclusive technology” such as DirectX 11 tessellation, HBAO+, TXAA antialiasing and PhysX to make it a step above console versions, adding value to your graphics card purchase.

Brought a GTX670 last week....would have prefered batman over the splinter cell i got, oh well.
£50 worth of in game credit and batman is still pathetic compared to AMD's offerings. Wonder if their bundles will remain the same when the next series of cards will come out?
I don't want credit for f2p games that I'll never play I want a bundle of latest games like AMD has all of the time!
This bundle is so lame compared to never settle, I imagine never settle has done wonders for AMD's sales.
To be honest I know that amd never settle bundle is better but according to tom's hardware comparison chart nVidia become more competitive performance/price wise. So the game deal is just a cherry on top. Plus you can buy game codes from the amd bundle for 10£ each :-P.
