NVIDIA To Bundle The Division With Selected GeForce GPUs

Videocardz.com is reporting that NVIDIA are preparing a new gaming bundle specifically for their high-performance GPUs, following on from their successful Rise of the Tomb Raider and Bullets or Blades bundles from the previous six months. The latest offer, known simply as Rise Up, combines Ubisoft's Tom Clancy's The Division with a brand new GeForce GTX GPU to let you play, as NVIDIA puts it, The Way It's Meant To Be Played.

Tom Clancy's The Division is an upcoming online-only 3rd-person shooter set in a near-future New York, featuring strong RPG elements and player-vs-player combat. Early previews have compared it to Bungie's PS4 exclusive Destiny in gameplay, although with a drastically different setting. A limited beta for The Division is due to begin on February 19th, which will allow players to assess pre-release game performance on their particular system configuration.

According to the information posted the game will be bundled with new purchases of a GeForce GTX 970, GTX 980, GTX 980Ti and GTX 980M, as well as new laptops equipped with a GTX 970M or GTX 980M. Only purchases made from qualifying retailers are eligible, and the game will arrive in the form of a redeemable UPlay code. The offer neatly dove-tails with the game's recommended configuration (see below), which suggests that it be paired with a GTX 970 or better for optimum performance (likely at 1080p). Perhaps unsurprisingly, The Division also makes use of NVIDIA's exclusive HBAO+ technology to optionally improve image quality.

Tom Clancy's The Division is set for release on March 8th for PC, PS4 and XBOX One.
