You are a member of the Division, an elite group of civilian agents charged with being the last line of defense. With DC at risk, it’s time to gear up and use your unique skills to take on this new threat!

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!

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, you’ll still need to grab your AMD Rewards Key from the retailer who is hosting the competition, looking at NZ we have two promotions pages running for the RX 570 + RX 580 bonus, and another for the RX 590 specifically – quick links below!
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.
