AMD Is Giving Away Far Cry 6 And Resident Evil Village For Free

Ubisoft | Capcom

2021 is a massive year for AAA games, and while some of us are waiting patiently for Call of Duty: Vanguard and Battlefield 2042, one of the year's biggest games is already out - with another is hot on its heels. Cashing in the horror hype of Resident Evil Village and taking a scenic tour of a war-torn Yara in Far Cry 6, AMD is offering both games for free.

The gaming industry was upturned by the pandemic, so it makes sense that companies tightened their belts a little more. Now that things are slowly going back to normal, AMD is bringing back its fan-favourite "Raise the Game" bundle. We've got to admit, it's one of its best offers yet.

Why is AMD giving away Far Cry 6 and Resident Evil Village for free?

Remembering that Village had some negative press surrounding its performance on PC (and was quickly given a massive patch), now couldn't be a better time to explore Castle Dimitrescu in all its gothic glory. Most of us have probably polished off Capcom's next-gen zombie shooter by now, but if you're in the market for a graphics card and haven't, the eighth main entry in the long-shuffling franchise is a nice bonus.

As for Far Cry 6, Ubisoft's delayed game is earning a tonne of buzz right now. We're closer than ever to the title's October 7 release, and if you were going to stump up for it anyway, AMD could save you some pennies. In classic Far Cry style, there's a reinvention on the cards, with the lush jungles of Yara holding host to the latest outing.

In Far Cry 6, you take control of guerilla fighter Dani Rojas, who tries to save Yara from Giancarlo Esposito's El Presidente Anton Castillo. Considering Ubisoft claims Far Cry 6 is optimised for Ryzen CPUs and Radeon GPUs and could have a 45% increase in frames per second when AMD's FidelityFX Super Resolution is enabled, you can see why the partnership is taking place.

How can you claim Far Cry 6 and Resident Evil Village for free?

There's obviously a catch. The "Raise the Game" bundle is now available with the purchase of a Radeon RX 6900 XT graphics card. They're reportedly in low stock right now, but if you can nab one from a qualifying vendor, AMD will send you the claim codes for both Far Cry 6 and Reisdent Evil Village - at no extra cost. 

The latest bundle was announced recently, with gaming desktops like the Ryzen 5000 and 3000 being paired with a Radeon RX 6000 graphics card. Gaming laptops were also included in the promo if you matched a mobile Ryzen 5000 series CPU with a Radeon RX 6000M GPU. All of the above still stands, but now, the standalone 69000 XT cards are added to the party.

This kind of promo has been around before, but this time, critics have called out the fact AMD is limiting it to relatively high-end and costly purchases. As others have pointed out, the graphics cards are rarely in stock anyway. With the Radeon RX 6900 XT coming in at a hefty $999, you have to ask how much $100 of games really takes the sting off. 

If you're sold on AMD's promotion, it runs from now until December 31, with gamers having until January 22 next year to claim their games.
