Those who plan on purchasing a PC powered by AMD Radeon get to claim a free copy of Far Cry 5 from a participating retailer. This offer only applies to pre-built systems sporting the RX 580, RX Vega 56, and RX Vega 64 GPUs and not to standalone Radeon GPUs.

AMD is offering an incentive to buy a Radeon graphics-powered pre-built PC this year by bundling a copy of Ubisoft's Far Cry 5 with every purchase. To qualify for the freebie, the PC being purchased must be running either a Radeon RX 580, RX Vega 56, or an RX Vega 64 GPU and come from a specific list of vendors. This offer is only applicable to pre-built PCs and leaves out standalone GPU buyers.

While not explicitly stated, leaving out standalone GPUs has an undercurrent that recognizes the shortage of gaming GPU stocks at fair prices due to increasing cryptocurrency mining. System builders, however, have an advantage of getting cards in bulk at reasonable prices. Therefore, it makes sense at this juncture to cater to those who would actually buy a gaming PC for, well, gaming instead to those who tend to create an acute GPU shortage off the shelves by way of mining.

The names of PC vendors participating in this offer are listed by region in the terms and conditions document here. To claim the free copy, the coupon code issued by the authorized PC retailer needs to be redeemed on the AMD Rewards site and linked to the user's UPlay library. The offer runs till May 20, 2018 starting now, although, the game itself is launching only on March 27. Copies have to be claimed before July 15, 2018.

Though a cell and molecular biologist by training, I have been drawn towards computers from a very young age ever since I got my first PC in 1998. My passion for technology grew quite exponentially with the times, and it has been an incredible experience from being a much solicited source for tech advice and troubleshooting among family and friends to joining Notebookcheck in 2017 as a professional tech journalist. Now, I am a Lead Editor at Notebookcheck covering news and reviews encompassing a wide gamut of the technology landscape for Indian and global audiences. When I am not hunting for the next big story or taking complex measurements for reviews, you can find me unwinding to a nice read, listening to some soulful music, or trying out a new game.
