AMD REWARDS – Xbox Game Pass for PC BONUS!

Great news for those gearing up for their next Gaming PC build – AMD has announced an awesome new 3 Month Xbox Game Pass for PC Subscription BONUS offer available on selected AMD Ryzen CPU & Radeon RX Graphics Cards!

That’s right folks, Xbox Game Pass is coming to PC! Starting August 2019, players will have unlimited access to a curated library of over 100 high-quality PC games on Windows 10, available to download and play. Xbox will continue to add more diverse titles to the library, including new games from Xbox Game Studios and well-known PC game developers and publishers on the day the games are released.

Please note: The Xbox Game Pass for PC is currently in beta (started on June 10th) and is set to launch officially in November 2019 (exact date yet to be confirmed) – this BETA is pretty much the full Xbox Game Pass system though and we’ve been happily playing everything from Vampyr to Mutant: Year Zero with no issues 🙂

via Microsoft: 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.

This promotion is available from July 2nd 2019 (NZ specifically, it’s 1st in the USA) until March 10th 2020

GOOD GAMING – AMD REWARDS 3x GAME BONUS

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!

GAME(S) ON!
