With the launch of the Ryzen 3000XT CPUs, AMD is also going to give away a free copy of Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla for eligible purchases. Announced as part of the “Equipped to Win” bundle, any purchase of a Ryzen CPU (above Ryzen 7 3700X) and select gaming systems between July 7 and October 3, 2020, will include a standard copy of Ubisoft’s upcoming game.
This points to Assassin’s Creed Valhalla being an AMD-partnered title over NVIDIA, which has been the case with the last couple entries. The game will also make its way onto the next-gen consoles (PS5 and Xbox Series X), both of which use AMD’s Zen 2 and RDNA 2 chips.
This complimentary bundle is pretty neat for new PC builders right now, and Ryzen has some nice offerings across many budget-ranges. However, this particular bundle will only be limited to the higher-end CPUs, so if you’re planning on getting a Ryzen 5 3600, then you won’t get the game. On the other hand, people who are planning on getting one of the newly launched Ryzen 3000 XT CPUs will be happy to have a new game that hopefully taxes the system in a good way.
Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla, will release worldwide Holiday 2020 on Xbox Series X, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Stadia, and for Windows PC exclusively on both the Epic Games Store and the Ubisoft Store. The game will also be available on UPLAY+, Ubisoft’s subscription service. You can pre-order the game here.
