Nvidia Corp. has barely responded to AMD’s highly-popular Never Settle bundles, which significantly boosted sales of AMD Radeon HD graphic cards, but it clearly plans to do so. Based on media reports, the company intends to bundle Metro Last Light video game with some of its GeForce GTX graphics cards.

According to a report by TechPowerUp web-site, Nvidia plans to respond to Never Settle campaign of its main competitor on the market of graphics cards by giving away Metro: Last Light with all GeForce GPUs upwards of the $200 price-point, which means GeForce GTX 660 or better. The bundle will go live from April 16th, the game itself is set to be available in mid-May at the price of around $50/€50.

Metro Last Light is a sequel to the million-selling Metro 2033 video game, which is based on Metro 2033 sci-fi book by Dmitri Glukhovsky, which tells a story about a post-nuclear war life of survivors deep in the Moscow metropolitan system, the biggest air-raid shelter ever built. Mr. Glukhovsky, the author of Metro 2033 and Metro 2034, originally planned to write another Metro-series book, but then wrote a scenario for the Metro Last Light video game. Since the Metro 2033 universe books written by different authors are among the most popular series in many countries, including Russia and Ukraine, the Metro Last Light promises to become a game of choice for millions.

While adding a free copy of Metro Last Light game with its graphics cards should be enough to attract attention to GeForce graphics cards, the campaign will barely beat AMD’s Never Settle Reloaded, which includes three or four AAA titles with the purchase of high-end graphics cards and two AAA titles with low-cost graphics cards.

Nvidia did not comment on the news-story.

Your going to need SLI/Crossfire to run this game with its intended fidelity anyway. So who gives a rat's a$$ if they throw in a free game, when your putting down $1000 worth of GPU? Ah better than nothing I suppose.

That's what they are counting on. Although really Nvidia has a lot less tempting of a deal and are only reacting to what AMD are doing. It a bit dissapointing when you think about the disparity between the two's market caps. Even more so with Intel. I don't know how amd does so much with so little but bless them for continuing to push the market forward, without them intel and nvidia would sit on their hands.

I only needed GeForce 560 GTX Ti to play Crysis 3. I hardly believe that 4A developers are worse than Crytek's...

Competition is good for the consumer, period. The Titan of today will be a mainstream $200 card in three years. GPU tech is moving at a much faster rate than CPUs.

Just the little bonus I needed to make my final decision. These things actually work sometimes!
