After letting their previous Watch Dogs bundle run its course over the past couple of months, NVIDIA sends word this afternoon that they will be launching a new game bundle for the late-summer/early-fall period.

Launching today, NVIDIA and their partners will be bundling Gearbox and 2K Australia’s forthcoming FPS Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel with select video cards. This latest bundle is for the GTX 770 and higher, so buyers accustomed to seeing NVIDIA’s bundles will want to take note that this bundle is a bit narrower than usual since it doesn’t cover the GTX 760.

As for the bundled game itself, Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is the not-quite-a-sequel to Gearbox’s well received 2012 title Borderlands 2. As was the case with Borderlands 2 before it, this latest Borderlands game will be receiving PhysX enhancements courtesy of NVIDIA, leveraging the PhysX particle, cloth, and fluid simulation libraries for improved effects.

GeForce GTX
770/780/780Ti/Titan Black
Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel
GeForce GTX 750/750Ti/760 None

Meanwhile on a lighter note, it brings a chuckle to see that NVIDIA is bundling what will most likely be a Direct3D 9 game with their most advanced video cards. This if nothing else is a testament to longevity of the API, having long outlasted the hardware it originally ran on.

Finally, as always, these bundles are being distributed in voucher from, with retailers and etailers providing vouchers with qualifying purchases. So buyers will want to double check whether their purchase includes a voucher for either of the above deals. Checking NVIDIA’s terms and conditions, the codes from this bundle are good through October 31st, so it looks like this will bundle will run for around 2 months.

    Borderlands 2 was awesome. Def. gonna get this game when it's released. Borderlands2 split screen on the xbox was 100s of hours of fun and the PC version was amazing too.

    It was an excellent example of how you don't need Crysis level hardware to have an amazing game: funny, varied, exciting, and action packed.

    All the characters were hilarious.

    I loved BL2 as well. I enjoyed it thoroughly and played through the campaign at least 4 times at this point with various friends. My only main concern about this game is claptrap as a playable character. I will reserve final judgment for once I've played the game, but I'm going to go on the record and say I think it'll be a mistake. While he is occasionally a funny character with some cute lines and roles in the game, I absolutely do not see him as playable character material. Reply

    Since he's (it's) a robot, I assume that he (it) would be immune to the oxygen resource mechanic of the game? I'm really curious to know how he'll (it'll) play.

    I played BL1 so much (too much?) on Xbox Live. All the characters, all the DLC, and so much Crawmerax farming! Chimera revolvers FTW! I feel like I have only scratched the surface of BL2, they released so much content that I couldn't keep up and eventually just kinda got lost in the game. Too much of a good thing? I'm certainly not complaining, but at this rate I am pretty sure I won't get around to BLPS until 2016. Oh well, it will be on sale on Steam for $5 with all the DLC by then. XD

    Yeah but just think of all the alternate paths he'll have to take due to stairs in the way. Reply

    I'm going to be *very* disappointed if he can climb stairs in this game :)

    All I know will have been a lie! That or claptrap is just a liar and a coward ;)

    Looks like nVidia is trying to dump their inventory of Keplers to prepare for the Maxwell 880/870 launch in Sept... Reply

    Nice. Too bad it is only for 770 and up. I wonder if this game will be full price. Have a steam gift card just calling "use me". Looking forward to this new game, but would be more excited about a true BL3. Reply
