Intel 10th Gen Core KA Marvel's Avengers SKUs Don't Include the Game

Intel recently announced its 10th Gen Core KA line of Socket LGA1200 desktop processors that are co-branded by Marvel's Avengers, complete with fancy retail channel packaging that's sure to attract collectors from the Marvel fanbase. Turns out, that the box doesn't actually include the game by Square Enix, as discovered by momomo_us. A fine-print on the bottom left corner of the front face of the retail box reads "Game Not Included." All you really do get is a fancy box that's been designed by artist Tristan Eaton. Some retailers may include plushies such as the one pictured below, which obviously cost less than a copy of the game. Marvel's Avengers (the game) releases on September 4, 2020, and is up for pre-order on Steam for $59.99.

Is the dog included ?
It say some retails might include it. Maybe look up the meaning of the word "plushy". That said, it looks more like it's made out of plastic than being a plushy.

Which makes this Avengers edition Intel processors even more meaningless. If they want to make a special edition, then follow through and offer the game, and not just some fancy box art that will end up in the storeroom or rubbish chute. This to me is a half hearted effort and just to trying to ride on the brand name.

Now if only AMD was making a deal and was giving the game with it's high core count models. That would have been the perfect trolling.

The worst thing is that currently releasing copies of a game costs next to nothing - it's just a key for Steam/Epic etc... So skimping on it is just laughable.

JAB - You made my day with those memes. :)

This is a pitiful arrangement.

Dedicated SKUs for these boxes, and the actual item it is themed around isn't included!

What an absolute joke Intel has become.

The game just like the movie are probably uninteresting so Intel made the right choice and spared us the pain of another Marvel rubbish.

The box shows the puppies, lga 1200 and i9 10850k.
But what should be a nice move from intel should be the four awesomes from the original séries from the real marvel: Thanos, the Death ( an incarnation of her) and Mefisto versus Adam Warlock and the rest of universe.
The box itself it's a bunch of graphics crap.
