As game releases ramp up and GPU manufacturers build market interest approaching the fall season, bundles seem to be popping up like daisies. The latest to join the fray is NVIDIA’s Paragon Game Ready Pack.
Paragon is the latest game out of Epic games. The Free-to-Play MOBA is set to release later this year and runs on Epic’s own Unreal Engine 4. NVIDIA’s newest bundle, starting today, includes a number of perks. These perks include both cosmetic and gameplay related benefits that NVIDIA values at $115. Included with the bundle is 1000 Paragon coins, which is in game currency usable to buy Master challenges, skins, and boosts. Two skins, one Snakebite Murdock Skin and one War Chief Grux Skin, are included. Last on the list, are Seven Master Hero Challenges which each include a Challenge skin for their character that bestows additional XP rewards form levels one through five and provides additional rewards form levels six through ten, after which the Master Skin and title of Master will be unlocked. The Paragon Game Ready Pack will run for a relatively short period of time, from now until September 19, 2016.

EzioAs - Wednesday, August 24, 2016 - linkCan we sell these credits and skins? I mean, I'm not really interested in Paragon.
JoeyJoJo123 - Wednesday, August 24, 2016 - linkProbably, you'd have to find a willing buyer that's trusting enough to take your word that your 24-character code actually works after-the-fact that money has already entered your pocket.
AnotherGuy - Wednesday, August 24, 2016 - linkWhat about the early buyers of the 10 series cards, will they be ignored? I mean if anything the early adopters should get extra bonuses.... why these companies never care about their customers, why?
I just bought a 1060... this really sux!
DanNeely - Wednesday, August 24, 2016 - linkThis promotion just started yesterday, so if you did just buy the card you're covered. If not, you're SoL.
These promotions are a way to make buying cards more attractive and to boost sales volume. The fact that this bundle is kicking off now probably means that nVidia feels it's finally handled the early adopter surge and is able to provide cards to retailers fast enough to keep them in stock. Prior to that point there's no need for a bundle because they're already selling cards as fast as they can make them.
Michael Bay - Wednesday, August 24, 2016 - linkAh, it`s just another nonstarter in already overcrowded genre, don`t worry.
Morawka - Wednesday, August 24, 2016 - linkcome on dude. you know the drill. GTX 1080's and 1070's are now in stock pretty much anywhere you look. Nvidia knows this, and they realize that demand has softened quite a bit. Thats why they do these game bundles, to help get rid of inventory for it's partners.
You will never see Nvidia bundle games on a GPU launch, because they know it's not needed, because demand is always high for the first 2-3 months.
JoeyJoJo123 - Wednesday, August 24, 2016 - linkHonestly, the bundle is absolutely worthless to me.
The game is free-to-play. The proposed "value" is of cosmetics and other microtransaction shop items. So let's be clear here, if you aren't into MOBAs and you weren't thinking of playing Paragon anyways, then the bundle here is worthless.
I'd much rather have AMD's bundle of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided as that's actually a good game and was a game that I wanted to pick up eventually when it inevitably goes on sale, so that bundle does offer me some actual _value_.
Brothergreen - Wednesday, August 24, 2016 - linkIf anything, the early adopters deserve extra bonuses...
What? Why? Because you lack impulse control?
Every GPU since 200s up has eventually been paired with games. My gtx 580s came with Batman, BF4 AND another game which I don't remember. Assassin's Creed or something... So if you are just soo hot to give them your money, that you refuse to wait for those deals, I don't see why you should be gifted them retroactively.
AnotherGuy - Wednesday, August 24, 2016 - linkJust because I had to sell my old card to get any value out of it (gtx 280x) and stayed 3 weeks playing on integrated i5, I dont belong on your described kinda crowd. I needed a card and couldnt wait another month without one, initially i wanted to get the rx 480 but that was too hot and impossible to find at msrp. So i went with 1060, I backordered it on launch day and got it from newegg like a week after for $250.
AnotherGuy - Wednesday, August 24, 2016 - linklol not gtx 280x but r9 280x
