AMD Rewards Far Cry 6 with Selected Ryzen 7 & 9 CPU!

AMD has just kicked off their latest game bonus bundle and this time it’s for the first-person shooter adventure game – Far Cry 6!

This offer is only available on selected AMD Ryzen 7 & 9 CPU, and only from eligible retailers (PB Tech in New Zealand).

There are currently two date ranges for this promotion, because the 5000 series releases a little later.

From October 21st – December 31st 2020 the eligible CPU are:

Ryzen 7 3800XT
Ryzen 9 3900XT
Ryzen 9 3900X

From November 6th (3am NZ release time TBC) – December 31st 2020 the eligible CPU list expands to include:

Ryzen 7 5800X
Ryzen 9 5900X
Ryzen 9 5950X

Far Cry 6: Dive into the gritty world of a modern-day guerilla revolution to liberate a nation from its oppressive dictator Anton, who wants to build the wealth of the nation for his son to inherit – he will sacrifice the freedom and lives of anyone who stands in his way.

Please note: The Far Cry 6 game release date is February 18th, 2021.

After revolution and decades of foreign economic sanctions and blockade, Yara has been frozen in time, forcing its people to find new ways to adapt. In its past life, Yara was a prosperous nation and a tropical paradise that attracted travellers from all over the world, excited to explore its lush jungles, pristine beaches, and sprawling capitol city!

It’s going to be an exciting adventure, and being a Far Cry series game, co-op too!

Intel Master Key – Get Marvel Avengers with selected i5, i7 & i9!

UPDATE: This promotion has been extended until November 30th!

We all knew this one was coming when we saw the new Intel CPU boxes but now it’s official! (see the full range at PB Tech)

For a limited time and while code supplies last, get yourself an Intel CPU from a select range, or custom PC featuring these, and you can register to redeem a Marvel Avengers Game Bonus – so get ready to assemble your team of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, embrace your powers, and live your Super Hero dreams!

This Intel Master key unlocks the full game, and some additional bonus skins for our heroes that we can use in game.

Marvel’s Avengers: An epic, third-person, action-adventure game that combines an original, cinematic story with single-player and co-operative play. Assemble into a team of up to four players online, master extraordinary abilities, customise a growing roster of heroes, and defend the Earth from escalating threats!

In-Game Content: Receive the Intel Exclusive Hero Outfits including Black Widow’s Sanguine Kiss Outfit, Captain America’s Star-Spangled Outfit, Hulk’s Unbreakable Outfit, Iron Man’s Iron Relic Armor Outfit, Ms. Marvel’s Insta-Fab Outfit, and Thor’s Dwarven Forged Outfit to further customise your gameplay experience.

Getting your game code is easy, once you’ve got your awesome new CPU simply visit the redemption site, create an Intel account, and then fill in your purchase details. The Intel team will then respond with your game code and instructions to activate (we’re unsure if this will happen ahead of the September 4th full game release, hopefully it does so we can all pre-load)

Marvel Avengers Redemption Website: https://softwareoffer.intel.com/MarvelsAvengers

Please note: Some people have gotten in touch saying that the redemption site is blocking them as though they used a VPN, even when they aren’t. A workaround for this issue is to register using a smartphone on the NZ mobile network.

This one is a little different from the usual Intel Master Key code offer as we no longer get our master key from the retailer, and it’s not a code in the box, instead, it’s done through the Intel portal linked above. This also means if we get stuck at all during the redeeming process we’ll need to use https://softwareoffer.intel.com/support to get issues sorted.

Register to Redeem Marvel Avengers with these eligible CPU:

i5-9400
i5-9500
i5-9600K

So there we have it, exciting times ahead as we team up to beat the bad guys. The BETA had our PCs pushed to the limits so we’re excited to see the if full game performance and graphics settings/options have also updated.

We’ll update the article with the direct link to the code redemption page as soon as it goes live, but until then, lets take a closer look at the awesome games that are up for grabs!

Godfall: Get ready to hack your way through hordes in this looter-slasher, melee action-RPG 🙂 You are the last of the Valorian knights, god-like warriors able to equip Valorplates, legendary armor sets that transform wielders into unstoppable masters of melee combat. Tear through foes as you climb through each of the elemental realms and challenge the mad god, Macros who awaits you at the top.

World of Warcraft Shadowlands: Discover what lies beyond the world you know in the next chapter of the World of Warcraft saga – Shadowlands! The veil between life and death is no more. With a single act of destruction, Sylvanas Windrunner has ripped open the way to the afterlife. Azeroth’s staunchest defenders have been dragged into all-consuming darkness. An ancient force of death threatens to break its bonds and unravel reality.

Hidden realms of wonder and horror await any who would pass to the other side. The Shadowlands is home to an entire realm of the departed; it is a world between worlds whose delicate balance preserves life and death itself. As one of Azeroth’s greatest champions, you have been granted the power to cross over in body and soul. Now you must investigate a conspiracy to unmake the cosmos, and help Warcraft legends journey back… or fulfill their ultimate destiny.

Align yourself with one of four Covenants—mysterious sects, each with their own ambition for the Shadowlands—to restore balance to the hereafter

If you havn’t played WoW yet, you’re in for a treat, the base game is free to try if you’re wanting to jump in ahead of the Shadowlands update too 🙂

Rainbow 6 Seige: Master the art of destruction and gadgetry in Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege. Face intense close-quarters combat, high lethality, tactical decision making, team play and explosive action within every moment. Engage in a brand-new style of assault using an unrivalled level of destruction and gadgetry!

On defence: Coordinate with your team to transform your environments into strongholds. Trap, fortify and create defensive systems to prevent being breached by the enemy.

On attack: Lead your team through narrow corridors, barricaded doorways and reinforced walls. Combine tactical maps, observation drones, rappelling and more to plan, attack and defuse every situation.

The Gold Edition pack allows the player to choose from dozens of highly trained, Special Forces operators from around the world. Deploy the latest technology to track enemy movement. Shatter walls to open new lines of fire. Breach ceilings and floors to create new access points. Employ every weapon and gadget from your deadly arsenal to locate, manipulate and destroy your enemies and the environment around them.

Running high frames and refresh rates on competitive games allow you to see things sooner and hit what you are aiming at. This Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege high FPS and Hz video shows the benefits of using a powerful graphics card like the GeForce RTX 2080Ti with a 240 Hz monitor.

The base game feels like a modern Counterstrike at first, so you can jump in and get into the lethal shooter gameplay side right away, but much like CS as you learn the various levels the game starts to evolve into a very deep, rather slow tactical shooter, packed full of glorious PVP misdirection and bait movements.

More than just point and shoot, there is a real emphasis on using environmental sounds to locate the enemies in this one too, adding to the tension and everyone slowly creeps about the place, peeping through holes in walls and popping off rounds to cover the sounds created elsewhere.

You can play the game in a single-player mode they call ‘situations’ and this is great for trying out new things without having to wait for the match to end to try things again. Multiplayer is also doable in solo queue but the game really comes into its own when you team up with mates and get on the microphones.

You don’t actually need to have the highest-end graphics card to enjoy this game too, 60+ FPS is achievable on entry-level GTX configs (remember this game bonus offer is ONLY for RTX graphics cards though), simply don a riot shield, work with your team, and have fun emptying the clip 🙂
