As game releases ramp up and GPU manufacturers build market interest approaching the fall season, bundles seem to be popping up like daisies. The latest to join the fray is NVIDIA’s Paragon Game Ready Pack.

Paragon is the latest game out of Epic games. The Free-to-Play MOBA is set to release later this year and runs on Epic’s own Unreal Engine 4. NVIDIA’s newest bundle, starting today, includes a number of perks. These perks include both cosmetic and gameplay related benefits that NVIDIA values at $115. Included with the bundle is 1000 Paragon coins, which is in game currency usable to buy Master challenges, skins, and boosts. Two skins, one Snakebite Murdock Skin and one War Chief Grux Skin, are included. Last on the list, are Seven Master Hero Challenges which each include a Challenge skin for their character that bestows additional XP rewards form levels one through five and provides additional rewards form levels six through ten, after which the Master Skin and title of Master will be unlocked. The Paragon Game Ready Pack will run for a relatively short period of time, from now until September 19, 2016.

    I don't get this bundle at all. Mid to high end GPU buyers and Paragon players seem like non-overlapping audiences...

    Minimum spec:
    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460, AMD Radeon HD 6870, Intel HD Graphics 4600, or equivalent DX11 GPU

    Paragon Recommended spec:
    Nvidia GTX 660 or AMD Radeon HD 7870 equivalent DX11 GPU

    Mutually beneficial bundle.

    Nvidia bundles a game and people waiting on a better deal might bite due to the perceived "added value".

    Paragon benefits by enticing players who already have free "DLC" content to stick with the game and play, boosting their audience, and therefore the amount of customers whom can purchase stuff from their microtransaction store in coming months.

    It makes sense from a business perspective, but not from the consumer's perspective.

    Is it a game that really shows off the power of the card you're buying (which I think is what you're getting at)? Maybe not.

    But non-overlapping audience? I would have to disagree. Buying a mid or high end GPU doesn't mean those users aren't interested in games that don't fully utilize the card...

    Come on, you're bundling microtransaction shop items for a free-to-play game? I don't want your worthless skins and boosters.
