AMD recently launched an “Equipped to Win” promotion that coincides with the launch of its new Ryzen XT CPUs. The promotion is relatively simple to follow: purchase one of the Ryzen processors that’s part of the promotion and you get a code to redeem Ubisoft’s upcoming game, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
For the desktop CPUs, you’ll only get the game code if you purchase one of six Ryzen CPUs. Those processors are the Ryzen 9 3950X, Ryzen 9 3900XT, Ryzen 9 3900X, Ryzen 7 3800XT, Ryzen 7 3800X, and Ryzen 7 3700X. Before you ask: yes, that list doesn’t include any of AMD’s Ryzen 5 CPUs.
Moving on, the “Equipped to Win” bundle isn’t just limited to AMD’s Ryzen 3000 series CPUs; You get the game code if you also purchase gaming laptops fitted with a select number of the CPU maker’s Ryzen 4000 mobile series processors. Namely, the Ryzen 9 4900HS and 4900H, as well as the Ryzen 7 4800HS and 4800H.
As for when the game will be available, your guess is as good as ours. As it stands, Ubisoft has been coy about an exact launch date, only that the Norse-themed action-adventure title is set to release “this holiday season”. Pointing towards a potential December launch. In any case, once you’ve bought the CPU, you’ll have until 7 November to redeem the game code.
AMD’s “Equipped to Win” bundle promotion will continue until 3 October 2020, or until it runs out of game codes, whichever event occurs first. Just keep an eye out for the “Equipped to Win” bundle sticker.
