All Radeon R9 cards get Battlefield 4 bundle

Written by Fuad Abazovic



The heat is on

We did a preview of one Radeon R9 270X card here and we are working on a full scale review, but as of today the whole Radeon R9 series just got a bit more exciting. AMD and its partners including, Sapphire and XFX, announced that they will bundle Battlefield 4 with all of their R9 cards. We believe that there will be more partners to do so, but we don’t have official confirmation as of now.

This means that despite the exclusive nature of the Radeon R9 290X Battlefield 4 bundle, the vanilla Radeon R9 290, R9 280X and even the most affordable R9 270X will get this exciting new game, too. Battlefield 4 is definitely a triple A title. It’s a great game to play and it has even better graphics than Call of Duty Ghost that created a whopping billion dollars of revenue at launch. We tried them both and we can admit that in single player these both games are rather short despite their 25+ GB download size. A skilled player can finish them within a few hours (Six hours is realistic probably even less if you don’t have a girlfriend. Ed.)

This bundle will put much more heat on the competition and one can see this as a direct answer to Nvidia's GTX 700 bundle of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag and Splinter Cell Blacklist and Batman Arkham Origins, quite a nice selection. Radeon R9 290 and 290X cards are back in stock at least at some top US etailers and our sources are telling us that they keep selling well despite the fact that Geforce GTX 780 Ti has put a lot of pressure on the R9 290X, stealing the performance crown in some titles, but also falling short in others.

Once can only hope that black Friday will bring even better deals, but for now, these bundles and close performance make it hard to choose.
