In addition to these, the Xbox Game Pass for PC offer continues and you’ll also get a 3-month subscription giving access to a massive range of additional games – including the just-released GEARS 5!
AMD REWARDS KEY UNLOCK: You Choose Borderlands 3 or Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint
Borderlands 3: Firearms with self-propelling bullet shields? Check. Rifles that spawn fire-spewing volcanoes? Obviously. Guns that grow legs and chase down enemies while hurling verbal insults? Yeah, Borderlands 3 has got that too. This latest addition to the Borderlands family is a multiplayer masterpiece packed full of adventures and loads of crazy weapons & powers to decimate your opponents with.
Ghost Recon Breakpoint: Somewhere in the South Pacific lies the remote Auroa Archipelago, a vast land of diverse biomes that range from lush rainforests to snowy peaks. Now, it’s home to Skell Technology, an enigmatic technology giant. Initially interested in a remote testing site for its autonomous drones, the Silicon Valley company eventually turned Auroa into its “World 2.0,” a high-tech, high-security utopia of sustainable eco-cities and robotics research.
Explore a diverse and mysterious open-world ranging from barren deserts and dramatic fjords to futurist cities and arctic peaks. Featuring 11 unique biomes and home to Skell Technologies this remote Archipelago will challenge the Ghosts like never before. Use the environment to your advantage as you disappear into a jungle canopy to evade your foes or jump into a vehicle and charge into battle by air, land and sea.
A seamless co-op experience means your squadmates can jump in and out at any time!

Looking closely at the Ryzen 2700X Gold we see the chip’s specifications match the popular 2nd Gen Ryzen 7 2700X, with 8-Cores and a 4.3 GHz Max Boost. AMD’s CEO, Lisa Su, has her signature on an included sticker, and also a coupon for a special 50th-anniversary shirt. For the Graphics Card, we have a new Gold RX 590 from Sapphire, and it looks spectacular! Again matching the specs of the popular blue RX 590, but with a beautiful new look!
Best of all, even if you’re not grabbing the new Gold Edition, those fine folks at AMD have also added that amazing game bonus offer across a large range of their tech, including the Ryzen 5 and 7 series, Radeon RX or VEGA Graphics Cards, and AMD Gaming PC featuring this hardware inside.
Now, let’s look at the games!
Arm yourself with AMD Ryzen or Radeon to lead a team of elite agents in Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 Gold Edition, a post-pandemic Washington, D.C. to restore order and prevent the collapse of the city. With The Division 2 Gold Edition you get the main game, Year 1 Pass, 7-day early access to all Year 1 episodes, 8 classified assignments, 3 new specializations and more.
Band together in World War Z, where you and a few hardened survivors are left to take on millions of ravenous zombies without feeling or fear. Plus, you get an exclusive AMD50 weapon skin on top of it. Get the power of Ryzen and the performance of Radeon for the ultimate gaming experience!
The Division 2: Lead a team of elite agents into a post-pandemic Washington DC to restore order and prevent the collapse of the city. Lawlessness and instability threaten our society, and rumours of a coup in the capital are only amplifying the chaos. All active Division agents are desperately needed to save the city before it’s too late. You are a member of the Division, an elite group of civilian agents charged with being the last line of defence. With DC at risk, it’s time to gear up and use your unique skills to take on this new threat!
We loved the original Division and can’t wait to run, gun and roll around like crazy! If you’re gearing up with one of these new Ryzen CPU or Gaming PC featuring one inside you’re in for a treat!
This Promotion has now ended, redemptions are still available for qualified purchases (last day for code redemption is May 6th)
AMD are back at it again, this time celebrating the release of the new RX 590 and VEGA VII Graphics Card with a triple game bonus via AMD Rewards! Fear not if you’re grabbing the RX 570 or RX 580 though, you’ll still be able to choose a 2x games bonus to go with your new Graphics Card or Gaming PC 🙂
Looking specifically at the games, all are soon to be released, so as I write this it’s more accurately described as a pre-order bonus – but the games are awesome!
THE DIVISION 2: The city calls on us yet again to run, gun and diveroll like crazy in a bid to save Washington D.C. which is on the brink of collapse. Lawlessness and instability threaten our society, and rumours of a coup in the Capitol are only amplifying the chaos. All active Division agents are desperately needed to save the city before it’s too late. Unlike anything before it, The Division 2’s Washington D.C. is a 1:1 representation of the real city, making the game world more authentic than ever. The game’s map offers up-close-and-personal views of landmarks, natural landscapes, neighbourhoods, and enemy hideouts.
RESIDENT EVIL 2 REMAKE: The original Resident Evil 2 was released in 1998 and since then has sold almost 5 million copies. The action game centred around rookie cop Leon Kennedy and college student Claire Redfield, as they fought to survive a mysterious viral outbreak within Raccoon City. The 1998 original was hailed as a gaming masterpiece and propelled Resident Evil into mainstream pop culture and the entertainment you know today… The horror, tension, characters and twisted narrative that made this one a survival horror masterpiece that captivated the world, returns reimagined in January 2019, with the characters, environments and story all been rebuilt from the ground up – promising us a truly terrifying world that feels both nostalgic and new!
DEVIL MAY CRY 5: Legendary DMC action returns and it’s made all the more stylish by the power modern gaming has to offer! With the Devil May Cry series boasting over 16 million sales worldwide, our latest adventure is set several years after the Order of the Sword incident with an unusual phenomenon suddenly appearing in Red Grave City. A gigantic tree pierces through the surface in the middle of town, attacking with roots that drain the poor citizens of their blood. Now Nero must bring his stylish destruction down on fiendish foes and show off his new demonic powers!
The process for registration and redeeming your games hasn’t changed much, but you’ll still need to grab your AMD Rewards Key from the retailer who is hosting the competition so let us know if you get stuck!
The games included in this promotion are pretty legendary indeed, with Strange Brigade, Star Control and Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey up for grabs. All yet to release!
Starting off with a closer look at Strange Brigade!
This one is a 4 player co-op adventure set in a 1930’s Indiana Jones meets the Mummy style adventure (from what we’ve seen so far at least). Explore alone or team up in 2-4 player online co-op, travel the ancient world as one of four dashing agents trained to tackle the supernatural. Seteki is not the only mythological menace to have awoken though, she’s brought an army of loyal beasts with her!
Explore remarkable ruins, solve perilous puzzles and uncover tantalising treasure while blasting your way through an array of undead enemies in thrilling third-person action that’s certain to bring out your inner adventurer. Hunt the foul Seteki through a rip-roaring campaign filled with dangerous dig sites, prodigious pyramids and crumbling caves packed with bountiful foes to send back to the afterlife. Decapitate the undead with spinning blades, fry them to a crisp with fire traps, crush them with a well-placed boulder and more. Keep those peepers peeled for suspicious clues, secret entrances and ancient contraptions that need re-awakening! Who knows what alluring treasures and buried riches await you on the other side.
Next up is the latest version of a game that many will likely have fond memories of from the original release in 1990 – Star Control is back!!
This latest version is called Star Control: Origins. You are the Captain of Earth’s very first interstellar ship – Congratulations! There’s just one tiny problem. It’s barely worth mentioning but a powerful alien species known as the Scryve want to exterminate humanity. We need you to go out and find allies, upgrade your ship and save the universe! Discover and use these so-called Precursor relics to upgrade your ship and try to avoid getting eaten along the way so that you can save humanity.
No pressure though. Just the very future of the human race rests on your shoulders 🙂
The next one is sure to have us running, jumping, slicing and dicing around Greece in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey!
This latest story in the Assassin’s Creed saga carries us into the biggest war so far. Demonstrate your warrior’s abilities in large-scale battles between Athens and Sparta featuring hundreds of soldiers, or ram and cleave your way through entire fleets in naval battles across the Aegean Sea. Your decisions will impact how your odyssey unfolds, with multiple endings thanks to the new dialogue system working with the choices you make. Customize your gear, ship, and special abilities to become a legend in new environments including lush vibrant forests, volcanic islands and bustling cities.
