Following last month’s launch of the new Radeon RX 5600 series of video cards, AMD is not done tweaking their product stacks quite yet. Today the company is launching an updated series of Raise the Game game bundles, which will see multiple games bundled with both Radeon RX 5500 and RX 5700 series cards, as well as OEM systems including those cards.

AMD’s latest game bundle is one of the biggest ones in a while from the GPU manufacturer, and is a bit surprising in just how many games they’re bundling with the cheaper Radeon RX 5500 XT. The updated bundle sees the value line of cards come with three games: Resident Evil 3, Warcraft III: Reforged, and Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint. For the RX 5500 this replaces the earlier bundle that was in place when that card launched in December, and is a notably larger bundle than that single-game Monster Hunter World offer.

Meanwhile the Radeon RX 5700 series gets a game bundle as well, but one that’s not quite so lucrative. The RX 5700 series now comes with Monster Hunter World: Iceborn Master Edition, as well as Resident Evil 3. AMD’s high-end cards haven’t previously been offered with a proper game bundle, so this is a first for those cards.

Along with discrete video card purchases, these bundles are valid for OEM systems as well. So as with standalone cards, AMD’s partners will also be bundling these games with desktops and laptops that are using 5500/5700 series video cards, including the Radeon RX 5500M series.

In fact, the only current-generation Radeon product that’s not getting covered by a new bundle is the recently-launched Radeon RX 5600 series. The cheapest of the Navi 10-based cards, AMD has been playing a very careful game there to grab a piece of the mainstream video card market without undermining their own pricing and profit margins by too much. So it would seem that AMD is happy to leave the RX 5600 XT where it is, without a bundle.

Overall, AMD’s latest bundle seems to be a reaction to recent launches and price cuts within the GPU sphere. The launch of the Radeon RX 5600 XT combined with NVIDIA’s recent price cut to the GeForce RTX 2060 has put a lot of pressure on the market, especially around the $300 price point. And while the affected AMD cards are all well above or below this point, it may be a sign that AMD is a bit worried about what these events mean for their other cards, leading to the company taking some steps to improve their value propositions without making significant price adjustments.

The current bundle offers are set to run through April 25th, 2020, or until AMD runs out of vouchers. As always, you can check AMD’s website for a complete list of participating retailers and OEMs, along with information on how to redeem the vouchers.

    Users have the right to review the game as they please, and if the overwhelming majority wants to give it a 0, then that's very well their right. What's not fine are users reviewing a game they did not purchase, but that's how MetaCritic works, it's not like a Steam review which can only be posted if they actually own the game on Steam and shows how long the user played.

    Bans were for profanity? I don't think I need to remind you that an official map literally named "Booty Bay" (features pirates and treasure) has the word "Booty" censored in the server browser. So if you want to host a Booty Bay game session, you can't advertise the name "Booty Bay" in the title of the session, at best you could say "B. Bay" or something. Because, dear god won't someone think of the innocent children, they'd be eternally scarred if they saw the naughty no-no word "Booty" inside Warcraft 3 Reforged, a game primarily being bought by boomers in their mid 30s because it's a remake of a game they played 2 decades ago.

    metacritic user reviews don't mean anything as you said, they have a right to be childish, I don't see how you are contradicting anything he said

    If they are in their mid 30s they would be millenials not boomers.

    Raise the Game, not Raise the Bar. ;)

    Well, that's embarrassing...
