AMD Equipped to WIN

AMD REWARDS Xbox Game Pass for PC BONUS!

UPDATE: There is an odd quirk to the Game Pass 1-month code provided from the AMD token, if you try to redeem while a Game Pass subscription is already running it will not work, but if your cancel your current subscription it will. The issue has been reported to AMD – thanks!

AMD surprise us again with a second AMD Rewards bonus, this time for individual components rather than pre-built systems, such great news for those looking to grab themselves a new Ryzen CPU or Radeon 6000 series Graphics Card to upgrade their existing system!

This new offer gives us an Xbox Game Pass for PC 1-month subscription and is available with a wide selection of AMD components.

Perfectly timed with the impending day-one release of Halo Infinite via the Game Pass service, this Microsoft subscription gives users access to amazing new releases, and a curated library of over 100 high-quality PC games to download and enjoy.

To claim your code for this new AMD Rewards: Equipped to Win offer, you have to purchase an eligible PC component between the 26th of October 2021 and 30th June 2022, and because you’ll need to claim your AMD Rewards Key, this offer is only available from AMD authorised retailers (see PB Tech in NZ).

Please note: This new offer is only for stand-alone PC parts, for pre-built Ryzen + Radeon desktop or laptop systems (or RX6900XT GPU stand-alone GPU now too), see this AMD Rewards: Raise the Game offer which is on now too and offers Far Cry 6 + Resident Evil Village.

The range of eligible components is massive, including a large range of Ryzen and Radeon options – quick links to our favourites below!

The Game Pass or PC service is still somewhat new, but the Xbox team have stayed true to their original announcements from when they first kicked off back in 2019, and they’ve done a a fine job adding more and more titles to the library, and now the options are quite diverse, but the really good thing is they kept on including new games on the day the games are released!

via Microsoft (the original from back in 2019): Xbox Game Pass for PC will give players unlimited access to a curated library of over 100 high-quality PC games on Windows 10, from well-known PC game developers and publishers such as Bethesda, Deep Silver, Devolver Digital, Paradox Interactive, SEGA, and more. And just as we committed on the console, it is our intent to include new games from Xbox Game Studios in Xbox Game Pass for PC the same day as their global release, including titles from newly acquired studios like Obsidian and inXile. We’re working with over 75 developers and publishers to bring PC content to the service and we’ll ensure the library remains curated and full of great PC titles across a variety of genres, with new games added every month. Xbox Game Pass for PC members will also receive discounts in the Microsoft Store on Windows of up to 20% on games currently in the library and up to 10% off related game DLC and add-ons.

Fast forward to 2021 and there are so many awesome games included with Game Pass for PC service, among these the new releases Halo Infinite, Age of Empires IV and Forza Horizon 5 have a lot of attention, but there’s so much more, especially with the recently connected EA PLAY offers.

Even if you’re not looking to upgrade right now, you may want to get the Game Pass service via https://www.xbox.com/en-NZ/xbox-game-pass/pc-games anyway, and if the timing is right, you’ll nab a sweet introductory deal too.
