Intel Master Key – Ubisoft Pick Your Game Bonus!

UPDATE: This promotion has now ended, check out the new Intel Master Key promotions!

Hold on tight! We’ve got great news for those gearing up with a new Intel CPU, Gaming PC or Gaming Laptop!

Those fine folks at Ubisoft and Intel have teamed up and this latest Intel Master Key code has some very cool games up for grabs – but you’ll have to pick exactly which ones the key will activate… which will you choose?

Via Intel: “We have teamed up with our partners to let you experience some of our best titles at no extra cost! Choose from three different Ubisoft franchises, including Watch Dogs: Legion, Riders Republic, and Immortals Fenyx Rising with your purchase of an eligible Intel® Core™ processor.”

This promotion is valid on qualifying purchases from March 23rd 2021 – August 31st 2021, or while code supplies last, and only from authorised retailers (PB Tech in New Zealand)

The offer is split between 3 different tiers of unlocks.

Step #1 is Ubisoft Pick 1 of 3 Games

Option A: At first glance Riders Republic may look like dirt biking version of steep, but it’s got snow boarding in it too so the comparison can be more direct 😛 Really though, this game is so much more, 50 players on screen at once type stuff.

As I write this the game hasn’t actually released yet, so depending on when you’re reading this, you could be picking a pre-order.

Boasting a large world to explore, from snowy mountains to arid canyons, the gameplay zone comprised of iconic US national parks: Bryce Canyon, Yosemite Valley, Sequoia Park, Zion, Canyonlands, Mammoth Mountain, Grand Teton… all mashed up into one unique place for you to shred.

We can squad up with friends and take on downhill races, dominate maps in team vs team competitions, or challenge ourselves with player vs player modes and events. Some of best parts of the trailer look to be the mass races, with a large number of player clambering over each other to be the first across the finish line (or the last one standing…).

Looking for a massively multiplayer extreme sports game? Riders Republic is something new and fun!

Option B: Watch Dogs Legion has just enjoyed it’s first birthday and the online world is teeming with new life. Join in on a game that lets you play as well… pretty much anyone you meet while your explore a near-future London. Fight back against the authoritarian powers who want to take over, and find out who is behind the Zero-Day bombings.

The world is large and richly populated, it’s as easy to spend the night messing around playing darts in a pub as it is to do some of the games missions, and you can play this one with friends now too, there is a range of co-op mode missions to enjoy together!

With so much to offer players, and so many ways to complete the game adding to the replayability of this one, Watch Dogs Legion is probably going to be the top pick for most!

Option C: Immortals Fenyx Rising is an utterly gorgeous game set in the open world filled with Greek Gods & their mythological kin. It’s the only game on our list that can be tried before you commit thanks to the Immortals Fenyx Rising Demo being freely available to download on PC.

If you enjoy adventure platformers, this is a great pick. The quest will have you mastering the legendary powers of the gods as you face familiar beasts such as Cyclops, Medusa & Minotaur.

The game is well optimised and easy to enjoy at very high resolutions, the weapon variety and wings combine nicely to create free flowing combat and exploration.

Step #2 is Ubisoft Pick 1 of 2 Games

Option A: ANNO 1800 welcomes you to the dawn of the Industrial Age in this excellent city builder game. Will you innovate or exploit? Liberate those in need, or perhaps become the oppressor..?!

A sprawling world is yours to create and manage, you’ll be celebrated by your citizens if you succeed and scorned when you don’t. Plan efficient logistic networks, explore, settle new lands, and dominate your opponents by diplomacy, trade, or warfare.

Build an empire that will stand the test of time. This game is capable of pushing your new CPU to its limits with the huge metropolises.

Option B: Star Trek Bridge Crew was originally released as an exclusively VR experience, but now this team based Star Trek simulator is playable with or without.

Have you ever wanted serve on a Federation Starship? Well, this rather epic game actually lets you become crew or captain on the USS Aegis, a new Starfleet ship sent to explore uncharted space in search of a new Vulcan homeworld.​ As officers of the Federation, every action and decision you make together will determine the fate of your ship and crew.

This is quite a unique game, offering players a true-to-life level of immersion in the Star Trek universe. A must have for those wanting a multiplayer VR experience, and now very enjoyable without VR too.

Step #3 gives you another game named Hunter’s Arena: Legends and some DLC for that game, no need to choose 🙂 There are some conditions in which the World of Tanks in-game currency offer can’t be redeemed to an existing account, but you could always create an alt account if you really wanted.

So there we have it, that’s 3 awesome new games (at least) and some sweet extras, thanks to both Intel and Ubisoft for the sweet new bundle!

PLEASE NOTE: We’ve had reports about the text message verification tool having issues sending messages to NZ numbers. If you get stuck at all during game activation be sure to log Support Claim with the Intel Master Key Team – they will help fix these sort of issues should they arise.

Timed rather nicely with the 11th Gen Intel CPU release, this offer is available for limited time and only on certain models, see the latest in the Intel Store.

GAME ON!
