AMD has just announced the new RX 590 bundle that comes with a copy of Devil May Cry 5, The Division 2 and Resident Evil 2 Remake. Keeping in mind that the graphics card costs $280, that is great value for money because the games alone cost $180. If you buy the AMD RX 580 or 570 then you can choose any two of these games. Which means a $120 discount.
Keeping all of this in mind, it is more than likely that the partnership between AMD, Ubisoft and Capcom runs deeper than just game codes. I suspect that these games will be optimized for AMD graphics cards on PC as well.
This is not the first time that Ubisoft has worked on a game with AMD. Far Cry 5 was heavily marketed to be optimized for AMD Radeon graphics and AMD Ryzen CPUs. I think that the same is going to be the case for The Division 2. According to the official AMD website:
Take to the streets of Washington D.C. as the world struggles to recover from a deadly virus outbreak in Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 or take a trip back to the terrifying streets of Racoon City in the all-new reimagining of horror-classic Resident Evil 2. Play as Dante, Nero and the mysterious V in Devil May Cry 5.
Devil May Cry 5 is months from release so there is little that we know about optimization but it would make sense keeping in mind that AMD does power the current generation of consoles.
The PS4, PS4 Pro, Xbox One and Xbox One X are all powered by AMD solution. The upcoming PS5 and Xbox Scarlet have also been confirmed to be powered by AMD solutions. AMD is the underdog in the graphics cards space and I think that working with developers can give the company a serious advantage.
Let us know what you think about Devil May Cry 5, The Division 2 and Resident Evil 2 Remake and which game you are most excited about.
