NVIDIA and its Partners to Bundle Battlefield 2042 with RTX 30-series Desktops and Laptops

NVIDIA announced that it is bundling the hotly anticipated online multiplayer shooter, "Battlefield 2042," with select pre-built desktops and laptops that feature GeForce RTX 30-series "Ampere" graphics cards. Slated for release in October, the game will be included as pre-order coupons with select pre-builts that have GeForce RTX 3070, RTX 3070 Ti, RTX 3080, RTX 3080 Ti, and RTX 3090. The RTX 3060 and RTX 3060 Ti miss out. There is no word on whether custom-design RTX 30-series graphics cards sold in the DIY retail channel through AIC partners are covered by the giveaway, but from what we can tell, they're not. That's not all, purchasing a qualifying desktop or laptop not only sets you up for a copy of "Battlefield 2042" Standard Edition, but also early access to the game's Open Beta, and in-game goodies such as exclusive weapon charms, player cards, backgrounds, and a special weapon. The bundle is only available in select markets, through participating retailers, and cover a selection of pre-built desktops and laptops.

I'm surprised they're still doing these promotions when they can't even keep the cards in stock...

That's the key. It ain't even the good-ole buy the card and get the game. Whole system only.
In today's market it's upwards of $1500 for the lowest of qualifying products, in which case a free BF2042 starts to sound more like chump change.

Battlefield 2042 might well be the 2042nd game in the series (apparently it's only game number 17, LOL)

I enjoyed BF1942 and BF3 but there are far too many Battlefield games.

Standard EA MO of shitting out games that have little new or original added. "Same game, same gameplay, same rules and same basic premise but we swapped the maps around please pay us another $60." It's only recently that lootboxes and $20 DLCs every 3 months went away, largely because that almost killed the entire franchise and fragmented the waning playerbase with typical EA greed.

Boycott EA. They're assholes.

Every single one of you missed the article. It's bundled with prebuilt DESKTOPS & LAPTOPS that have the GPU built in. They are not bundled with the cards themselves.

Spoiler Alert: The game is a documentary that will breech the press embargo date by two decades. I should know.
