From today until October 16th (or while supplies last), NVIDIA is offering a Middle-Earth: Shadow of War bundle for GeForce GTX 1080 and 1080 Ti graphics cards, systems, and laptops. Branded as “Forge Your Army,” the bundle comes with a free Steam copy of Shadow of War that must be initially redeemed through GeForce Experience.

The much-anticipated sequel to Shadow of Mordor launches on October 10th. Its predecessor was known for punishingly intensive graphics, particularly with respect to VRAM consumption, and found itself in several of our benchmark suites. On that note, Shadow of War will come with an Ultra High Definition texture pack, much like Shadow of Mordor did.

Last month at GamesCom, NVIDIA and Shadow of War developer Monolith Productions also disclosed that Shadow of War will support Ansel at launch, and are working on HDR and SLI support as well.

The previous bundle (Destiny 2 for 1080 and 1080 Ti) ended September 5th, and so this is the only active NVIDIA promotional bundle. More details can be found at the main bundle page.

Additional information about code redemption can be found on NVIDIA’s FAQ site. Be sure to verify the participation of any vendors purchased from as NVIDIA will not give codes for purchases made from non-participating sellers.

    Naturally, I ordered my 1080Ti Monday. What the heck.

    Maybe they will still honor it if you reach out to them. Which brand/OEM is it?
  • jahara21 - Wednesday, September 27, 2017 - link

    EVGA. I haven't played the first one, so I don't know if this one would be worth returning it, and buying it again.

    You most likely would have to return it. Nvidia is very strict on the dates. Also, the codes are provided by the retailers not the manufacture. EVGA has their own store.

    Seriously, my card just arrived yesterday. :|

    Sales must be slowing down.
    When is the 11 series landing?
  • shabby - Wednesday, September 27, 2017 - link

    Not anytime soon, nvidia can just lower prices, maybe we'll see volta in spring.

    NVIDIA sales aren't necessarily have to be in bad position for them to offer these game bundles, they offer these throughout the year, even with fresh releases of GPUs and mostly, it's AAA titles like these.

    If you plan on buying a game itself anyway, you can plan your purchase accordingly and see this as a $60 discount to your purchase when you get a free game.

    Figures. Just bought a 1080Ti within the last month.

    Just learned about this bundle! Bought my 1080ti Monday... the 25th after getting out of work @ 11:15pm. >.<. Missed the deal by minutes. Got it off Newegg too... so can't return it and reorder it without restocking tax and shipping costs. Which would be the same price as the game full retail.
