AMD Never Settle Forever scheme offers new batch of games and indie bundles with cards

Dave James at

AMD have just refreshed their Never Settle program, which gives away games in return for spending cash on Radeon silicon. The Never Settle Forever program is extending the range of the deal to include low-end Radeon R7 cards as well as the standard Radeon R9 cards.

There are now three tiers of rewards depending on what graphics card you end up selecting for your home rig. The top-end Radeon Gold Reward is there for anyone who picks up a new R9 290 or 280 series graphics card, which includes anyone wealthy enough to have spent £1,100 on a new Radeon R9 295X2. With the Gold Reward coupons you get to choose three free games from AMD’s pool of titles, which includes Sleeping Dogs, Company of Heroes 2, Darksiders 2, Deus Ex: Human Revolution and more.

Beneath that, for anyone buying an R9 270 or R7 260 series card, you have the Silver Reward tier where you can pick up two free games. An R7 250 and 240 series purchase then will give you entry to the Bronze Award tier which allows you a single free title.

You get fewer choices of titles the further down the reward tiers you go

This time around AMD aren't just limiting the Never Settle Forever program to big-budget games, they’re also offering indie bundles as a single choice. Each reward level offers an indie pack as a single choic. Each indie pack contains two of the four indie games on the list. Those are: The Banner Saga, Dyad, Guacamelee! and Tales from Space: Mutant Blobs Attack.

Wacky ghost romp, Murdered: Soul Suspect is on offer for Gold and Silver Rewards

As well as a host of existing titles, like Tomb Raider and Thief, Gold and Silver folk can grab the upcoming Murdered: Soul Suspect when that launches in June too.

What are your thoughts on the relative merits of these sorts of gaming bundles? Would the offer of an extra game encourage you to buy a better card to bump you up a reward tier? Are there any games coming out that would make that choice for you?
