Today NVIDIA offers a new free Ubisoft game for those picking up a GTX 1070, GTX 1080 or a system containing one or more of those cards. You can choose either For Honor, an arena stlye game pitting Knights, Samurai and Vikings in hand to hand combat or Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands which will lie somewhere between Arma and Just Cause. Neither game is yet released, For Honor arrives February 14th while Ghost Recon Wildlands doesn't launch until March 7th but you can get an early look at the game.
NVIDIA has also made the process to collect your game somewhat easier, as long as your GeForce and Ubisoft accounts are linked you can simply enter the code to chose your free game. If you are one to avoid Uplay at all costs you could always give your code away as a gift.
"We are also debuting a new easier way to redeem codes through GeForce Experience, it means customers no longer have to tolerate long sign up webpages but can simply enter their code within GeForce Experience itself and have their choice of game automatically added to their Uplay account."

NVIDIA is now bundling a code to get you a free copy of Splinter Cell Blacklist Deluxe with GTX660s and up, including the three new cards recently released. Major retailers such as NewEgg, NCIX and Amazon all qualify as participating partners in North America and you can follow the link to NVIDIA's page to see the global partners as this is not a North America exclusive deal. The deal is on until Dec 31st of this year ... or until the terrorists win by finishing the Black List.
SANTA CLARA, Calif.—July 9, 2013—NVIDIA today announced it is working with Ubisoft to deliver the most dramatic and intense gaming experience possible for Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Blacklist. And starting today, gamers who purchase a GeForce GTX 660, 660 Ti, 670, 680, 760, 770, or 780 from a participating partner will receive a free copy of Splinter Cell Blacklist Deluxe Edition for PC, which will be released on August 20, 2013 in North America.
NVIDIA engineers are working closely with the Ubisoft Toronto development team to incorporate an array of cutting-edge gaming technologies for Splinter Cell Blacklist including Direct X tessellation, NVIDIA HBAO+, TXAA antialiasing and surround technologies to ensure gamers can experience smooth frame rates and awesome visuals in all of their covert missions.
In Splinter Cell Blacklist, Sam Fisher returns as leader of 4th Echelon, an elite counter-terrorism unit armed with a new mandate to hunt down the masterminds behind The Blacklist, a series of deadly escalating attacks on U.S. interests. To stop the Blacklist countdown, gamers will choose the best way to face any challenge by tapping into Sam’s arsenal of lethal skills and training. The biggest game in the award-winning series, Splinter Cell Blacklist features an immersive single player story, distinct co-op missions, and the return of the legendary Spies Vs. Mercs multiplayer mode; all supported by a universal economy and customization system that allows players to completely customize their game experience.
For a full list of participating partners, please visit: http://www.geforce.com/landing-page/free-splinter-cell-blacklist. This offer is good only until December 31, 2013, or until The Blacklist countdown is eradicated, whichever comes first.
