Daylight & Free To Play Bundles Now Available

Featured Stories, NVIDIA GameWorks, Bundles

Tired of shovelling snow? Want to beat the winter blues? How about ushering in the start of spring with two new exciting game bundles from NVIDIA? Starting today, gamers who purchase select NVIDIA GeForce GTX desktop GPUs and GeForce GTX-powered notebooks can take advantage of two new bundle offerings: a redeemable code for the Unreal Engine 4 horror game Daylight, or $150 of in-game currency for free to play titles Heroes of Newerth, Path of Exile, and Warface.

GeForce GTX 2014 Free To Play Bundle

In recent years free-to-play gaming has quickly progressed from mere novelty to gaming global leader, engrossing players for hours on end each and every day, and generating more revenue than the vast majority of triple-A titles. The best free-to-play games match or exceed the quality of these traditional releases, and avoid unpopular “pay to win” perks.

As of today, eligible GeForce GTX 750 Ti, 750, 650 Ti BOOST, 650 Ti, and 650 graphics cards, as well as eligible GTX-equipped 700M and 800M notebooks include $150 of in-game currency to get you started in three popular free-to-play titles.

Heroes of Newerth

Heroes of Newerth was one of the first MOBAs to go live, pitting teams of players against one another in nail-biting action-strategy match ups that feature a diverse cast of Heroes, each with their own abilities and powers.

Heroes of Newerth is truly free to play, preventing the purchase of Heroes with real world money, putting all players on equal footing with access to all Heroes from day one. You can purchase new, alternative skins for your Heroes, however, in addition to a variety of vanity items that enable you to stand out on the battlefields of Newerth. The GeForce GTX 2014 Free To Play Bundle gives you 3050 Gold, worth $50, to spend on these skins and other available items.

Path of Exile

Path of Exile is a popular action role-playing game, similar on the surface to games like Diablo. Beneath its completely free surface players discover a title filled with hundreds of hours of engrossing gameplay, and genuine tactical depth, enabling players to develop their characters in innumerable ways thanks to Path of Exile’s unique skill system.

Like Heroes of Newerth, Path of Exile does not allow players to purchase power or other items that give them an advantage. Instead, only loot stash upgrades and cosmetic items are offered, enabling the personalization of your champion. With the free-to-play bundle's 500 Points, worth $50, you can purchase a pet, armor, weapon and skill effects, unique character animations, and any number of other items. But even if you don’t, you’ll never be at a disadvantage in comparison to folks who do.

Warface

Warface is a free-to-play first-person shooter from Crytek, developer of the Crysis franchise. Primarily team-based, groups of gamers take part in co-op and competitive missions in a fractured world controlled by powerful paramilitary organizations.

With in-game currency and tokens, earned through gameplay, players can upgrade their equipment, and with the bundle’s 5200 Kredits, worth $50, tier three weapons, cosmetic items, and boosts can be purchased.

GeForce GTX ‘Scary Good’ Daylight Bundle

Next-gen will be a scary place thanks to Daylight, a psychological thriller built on Epic Games’ next-gen Unreal Engine 4. Developed by Zombie Studios, Daylight will scare games silly this April with a mix of frights, psychological torture, twisted storytelling, foreboding audio, and advanced graphics. On PC, Daylight’s advanced visuals are enhanced with GPU-accelerated NVIDIA PhysX effects, NVIDIA HBAO+, and NVIDIA DirectX 11 Bokeh Depth of Field effects, giving GeForce GTX gamers the definitive experience. You can even stream Daylight to the NVIDIA SHIELD, and GameStream to your 1080p HDTV, enabling you to see the game’s terrifying sights from anywhere in your home and from the comfort of your sofa.

Presented entirely in the first-person perspective, Daylight begins with players regaining consciousness in an abandoned hospital, with only a cell phone to use as a source of light. The ominous atmosphere, powered by Unreal Engine 4, gives players the immediate feeling that they need to escape. But since each level is procedurally generated, no clues, haunted corridors, life-saving flares or lurking spectres will ever be in the same place twice. Only the bravest and most persistent souls will find all the messages and clues scattered throughout Daylight's labyrinthine twists of derelict and creepy environments, and without them players will never learn all of Daylight’s many secrets.

From today, the purchase of a GeForce GTX TITAN Black, TITAN, 780 Ti, 780, 770, 760, 690, 680, 670, 660 Ti, or 660 at a participating store will net you a free, downloadable Steam copy of Daylight, which will activate upon the game’s release this coming April.

With an eligible GeForce GTX GPU, you’ll be ready to tackle the horrors of Daylight with NVIDIA PhysX effects, NVIDIA HBAO+, and NVIDIA DirectX 11 Bokeh Depth of Field effects, ensuring your game looks great even when you’re hiding behind your desk.

Conclusion: Spring Bundles Fright & Delight

Regardless of which GeForce GTX GPU you purchase, you’ll receive the definitive experience in any game, enhanced by complimentary, interconnected, unbeatable, value-added innovations like GeForce Experience, GeForce ShadowPlay, G-SYNC, and GameStream.

From today, the value of a newly purchased, eligible GeForce GTX GPU from a participating retailer or e-tailer will be further increased with the inclusion of Daylight, or the inclusion of in-game currency totalling $150 for three free-to-play games.
