Nvidia has kicked off a new gaming bundle promotion - but it's only available to those buying top end GeForce GTX gear. The new 'Forge Your Army' bundle provides qualifying purchasers with a free copy of Middle-earth: Shadow of War. Nvidia's latest bundle runs from today until 16th October, or while supplies last.
Middle-Earth: Shadow of War's official recommended GPU is the GeForce GTX 1060 (6GB), "which will deliver a great 1080p 60FPS at High settings gaming experience," asserts Nvidia. However, to run at higher resolutions and at ultra settings "for the ultimate gaming experience," higher-end GeForce GPUs are recommended.
Back at Gamescom Nvidia, Warner Bros and Monolith Productions, announced they were collaborating on the PC version of Middle-earth: Shadow of War. In particular Nvidia has worked with the developer to implement features such as HDR colour, and Nvidia Ansel in-game photography. There's an Ultra High Definition texture pack to provide the highest level of detail possible on top-end systems. Shadow of War's built-in benchmarking tool is said to accurately mirror performance in the most demanding moments of the game so its easy to tweak for the best performance on your setup.
Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 and 1080 Ti GPUs, systems and laptops qualify for the 'Forge Your Army' bundle. If that's something you have your eye on, from today until 16th Oct, head on over to the redemption page and follow through the instructions. Make sure you buy from a qualifying retailer (scroll down and select your country of residence). The process requires an installed copy of the GeForce Experience but Nvidia's accessory software can subsequently be used to optimise your settings, capture and stream gameplay, and more.
