Coinciding with this week’s launch of the GeForce 800M series, NVIDIA is back in the saddle with another set of bundles to help promote GeForce video card and laptop sales.

Replacing the Assassin’s Creed IV bundle that had been running for the last couple of months, NVIDIA’s spring bundle will be a two tier affair. For purchasers of the GeForce GTX 660/760 and above, NVIDIA will be including a voucher for a Steam copy of the survival horror game Daylight.

Daylight is a game we have admittedly not heard much about thus far, but a bit of research tells us that it comes from Zombie Studios, the developers responsible for the Spec Ops and Blacklight series of games, among others. More excitingly, this will be the first game released that uses Unreal Engine 4, coming out ahead of other titles such as Epic’s own Fortnite. Daylight is set to retail for $15, so this won’t be quite as aggressive a bundle that the outgoing AC4 bundle was.

NVIDIA Spring 2014 Game Bundles

760/770/780/780Ti/Titan
660/660Ti/670/680/690
Daylight
GeForce GTX 650/650Ti/750/750Ti $150 Free-To-Play

Select GTX 700M/800M-based Notebooks $150 Free-To-Play
(Warface, Heroes of Newerth, Path of Exile)
GeForce GT 640 (& Below) None

Meanwhile for customers purchasing GTX 650 and GTX 750 series cards, along with “select GTX 700M/800M-based notebooks,” NVIDIA is launching another one of their free-to-play currency bundles.  This spring F2P bundle will be for Warface, Heroes of Newerth, and Path of Exile, with NVIDIA providing a voucher good for $50 of currency in each game. At $150 the retail value of this bundle technically exceeds the value of the cards it’s bundled with, but it goes without saying that NVIDIA is clearly not paying retail prices here. Whereas the fact that they’re offering this bundle with laptop sales is quite interesting, since NVIDIA doesn’t typically promote laptop sales in this manner.

Finally, as always, these bundles are being distributed in voucher from, with retailers and etailers providing vouchers with qualifying purchases. So buyers will want to double check whether their purchase includes a voucher for either of the above deals. Checking NVIDIA’s terms and conditions, the codes from this bundle are only good through May 31st, so we don’t expect this bundle will run any longer than 2 months.

    That's a very underwhelming bundle for cards that came out a year ago.

    Also $150 sounds like a lot but to me (and I'm sure everyone else who has no interest in playing those games) it isn't that appealing. $150 in big titles like LoL or tf2 would be a different story. Though it's not usual for laptops to have bundles at all so as long as it doesn't affect laptop pricing it's fine.

    I'm really bummed about that 600 series bundle though. It feels like they're actively trying to keep me from upgrading my desktop gpu.

    I can't speak for the other F2P games; but I've been playing Path of Exile (a D2esque ARPG) since mid 2012. It's not P2W; but spending $30 on a dozen extra stash tabs will make inventory management much easier. A free account comes with 4(?) tabs and 24 character slots; and it's certainly possible to use most of the slots to create mules to hold stuff but having to switch characters all the time to shuffle items around would get annoying fast.

    You spent $30 to make your inventory easier to manage? Here was me running around with this silly notion of in-game purchases being a joke. Reply

    You can spend whatever you want or not. $30 is the middle of the range for a not on heavy sale game on steam; the bigger inventory just means you can spend more of your time killing monsters instead of playing inventory management and can hold onto stuff that would be useful for use on future characters or for trade without having to offer firesale prices to get rid of it asap to keep your inventory clear.

    Well, it's main competition would be Diablo 3 which was $60 new and you can't expand your inventory at all there. Or Torchlight 2 which is $20 and again, no upgrading the inventory I do believe. If the only purchase you need is around $30 to make the game perfect then I'd say you're doing ok. Reply

    Clearly you don't and haven't played Path of Exile. Buying extra stash tabs is like buying a case for your computer. You don't technically need one to build and use the computer, but you are just making too many sacrifices without it. Same with extra stash tabs in PoE, I have also spent about $20 on them and it's really worthwhile considering I've played the game for 9 months now at a total cost of $20. Reply

    Already got a 750Ti, so no bundle for me. I guess its good that I'm completely uninterested in all of those games. Reply

    Over the holidays, I bought a GTX770, and it came with Assassin's Creed, Splinter Cell, and the new Batman game. I have no interest in any of those titles, and would've much rather just taken an even slightly deeper discount. This seems like just another round of that. Reply
