NVIDIA is launching a new game bundle for its latest generaiton GeForce RTX 40-series graphics cards and OEM systems. This time, NVIDIA has teamed up with Activision Blizzard to offer a free copy of the latest iteration of their wildly popular action RPG series, Diablo IV.
This promotion will run globally, starting now and running through June 16, 2023. For more than a month, customers purchasing GeForce RTX 4090, 4080, 4070 Ti, 4070 graphics cards or desktops containing one of them from various vendors will get a free digital download code of Diablo IV Standard Edition on Battle.net. The code for the title must be redeemed before July 13, 2023.
|NVIDIA Current Game Bundles
(incl. systems and OEMs)
|GeForce RTX 40 Series Desktop (All)||Diablo IV|
|GeForce RTX 30 Series Desktop (All)||None|
|GeForce RTX 40 Series Laptop (All)||None|
|GeForce RTX 30 Series Laptop (All)||None|
For NVIDIA, Diablo IV will also be a technology showcase, as it is set to support the DLSS 3 upscaling technology as well as the Reflex latency cutting out-of-box at launch. Ray tracing is also slated to be added at some point after the game launches. At retail pricing, Activision Blizzard's Diablo IV Standard Edition costs $69.99 at Battle.net, though NVIDIA is undoubtedly getting a bulk deal.
It should be noted that this latest game bundle is just for NVIDIA's RTX 40 series desktop cards. Unlike the since-expired Redfall bundle, NVIDIA is not offering Diablo IV (or any other games) with GeForce-based laptops. Nor are any remaining GeForce RTX 30 series producted covered.
Diablo IV will officially release on June 4, 2023.

PeachNCream - Tuesday, May 9, 2023 - linkAs anyone who's got a Steam account will tell you, game selections are generally not great. Steam really seems to have followed Google's Play Store thing in terms of new titles. Diablo 4 looks like yet another title that attempts to ride on the shoulders of previous iterations' successes by copy-pasting more of the same. Its no wonder gaming hardware is sitting on shelves gathering dust. Reply
Samus - Wednesday, May 10, 2023 - linkI don't know about copy and pasting. A friend of mine has been in the closed-beta since last year and says the game continues to run like shit on modern hardware (a requirement to be in the beta was an RTX 40, and she has a 4080.) The consensus among testers is it essentially requires DLSS3 - and perhaps why AMD wasn't even considered for this promotion.
So unless they come up with some pretty amazing tweaks in the next month, this game will barely run on 30-series cards, another reason it's not bundled with them. The real elephant in the room is the predatory climate surrounding Blizzard. It's surprising nVidia partnered with them while that is on public display. Reply
Qasar - Thursday, May 11, 2023 - linki had NO issues with performance when i was playing the beta a month ???? or so ago, on a 5900x, 3060 strix and 96 gigs of ram, max settings @ 1440p so i dont know what to tell you about your post * shrug *
found the game to be quite playable, and looking forward to the release Reply
geniekid - Thursday, May 11, 2023 - linkI haven't been in the closed beta, but I did play for many hours during the open beta six weeks ago and I had no problems (fairly consistent 60 fps) with my 1080 Ti and 7700k at 3840x1600 at Ultra settings. Reply
meacupla - Thursday, May 11, 2023 - linkyeah, the main complaint I recall from open beta was server stability. Play solo and it was fine, but as soon as you tried to play with friends, disconnect after disconnect. Reply
imaheadcase - Thursday, May 11, 2023 - linkSounds like friend needs new hardware. Reply
Leeea - Tuesday, May 9, 2023 - linkIt is worth noting that California Department of Fair Employment & Housing Lawsuit Against Activision Blizzard appears to continue to grind onward with Blizzard continuing to fight to avoid the consequences of a culture of sexual abuse toward employees in more vulnerable positions.
imaheadcase - Thursday, May 11, 2023 - linkThat isn't worth noting at all as it has zero to do with this. Like zero fucks are given to things outside of games. lol Reply
wanderer66 - Tuesday, May 16, 2023 - linkBut it's NOT worth wandering into a backwater comment section with something everyone knows about and is only tangentially related by a name. Reply
