Get a free copy of Black Ops Cold War with NVIDIA RTX 3080 or 3090
NVIDIA has announced a partnership with Activision to include copies of the game with graphics card purchases.
The company has announced that RTX 3080 and 3090 graphics cards will include a free copy of Black Ops Cold war.
This announcement comes shortly after the launch of Watch Dogs: Legion, which was the previous game that select RTX cards were bundled with. Now in a joint promotion with Call of Duty and Activision, these cards will now include a copy of Black Ops Cold War.
The copy of the game will be the standard edition of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War for PC. The code will also include the Woods Operator Bundle for Modern Warfare & Warzone and the Confrontation Weapons Pack for use in Black Ops Cold War.
For players switching to the PC platform or already existing Call of Duty PC players, this is a great deal for those looking for the premiere PC gaming experience.
Due to low availability across all online storefronts of these new cards, supplies are very limited to find the cards online in stock. It is worth noting that the bundle is limited to qualifying graphic card models, so it might not be bundled with the card you are looking to buy. Be sure to check the NVIDIA site for full qualification information.
It appears this deal does not qualify when purchasing the more modestly priced $499 RTX 3070, which launched late last week. If you are willing to pay the premium for a $699 RTX 3080 or $1,499 RTX 3090 though, you’ll be in this deal.
Black Ops Cold War will be bundled with every NVIDIA 3080 and 3090 Founder’s Edition cards, which are available on their website or Best Buy, when stock is available. It’s not specified when this promotion will end, so there may be a window to pick up a card with a copy of the game. Hopefully, the supply problems will be fixed in the near future.
If you are looking into buying an RTX 3000 series card, a list of minimum/recommended PC specs for Black Ops Cold War is show above.
The best value for your money would be with the RTX 3070, listed under competitive/recommended (with Ray Tracing), however, if you want to experience the game at maximum settings at 4k resolution, it is recommended you get a 3080.
Regardless of which card you choose though, either one of the RTX 3000 cards will crush 144 FPS+ 1080p gaming.
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War PC is available on November 13 only on Blizzard Battle.net. The game features additional NVIDIA support with ray tracing and more technology in partnership with the company.
