A redeemable code for Daylight is one of Nvidia's new Spring bundles.
Nvidia updated the GeForce site on Wednesday with news of two new Spring bundles that customers can receive when purchasing select GeForce GTX GPUs or GeForce GTX-powered notebooks. One bundle is a redeemable code for the Unreal Engine 4-powered Daylight, while the other is a Free To Play bundle providing $150 worth of in-game currency for Heroes of Newerth, Path of Exile, and Warface.
Starting Wednesday, the purchase of a GeForce GTX TITAN Black, TITAN, 780 Ti, 780, 770, 760, 690, 680, 670, 660 Ti, or 660 at a participating store will land customers with the downloadable Steam copy of Daylight, which launches in April. Retailers participating in the sale of this bundle can be found here, which lists Amazon, Newegg and TigerDirect for starters.
"On PC, Daylight's advanced visuals are enhanced with GPU-accelerated Nvidia PhysX effects, Nvidia HBAO+, and Nvidia DirectX 11 Bokeh Depth of Field effects, giving GeForce GTX gamers the definitive experience," reads Nvidia's update. "You can even stream Daylight to the Nvidia SHIELD, and GameStream to your 1080p HDTV."
On the Free-To-Play front, eligible GeForce GTX 750 Ti, 750, 650 Ti BOOST, 650 Ti, and 650 graphics cards, as well as eligible GTX-equipped 700M and 800M notebooks, will include $150 of in-game currency.
