Nvidia Adds Metro Exodus to RTX Bundle

In an attempt to tempt those in the market for an new GPU, Nvidia just launched the "RTX Triple Threat" game bundle with what may be the best RTX-enabled game to date. Nvidia's previous "Game On Bundle" gave buyers Battlefield V and Anthem for free, but starting today, anyone who buys a RTX 2080 or 2080 TI will get Metro Exodus as well. RTX 2070 and 2060 buyers will get to pick 1 of the 3 games, but sadly, the recently released 1660 TI isn't part of this particular bundle.

Pre-built desktops and laptops are covered by the deal as well, and the terms and conditions mention that the deal will be good until at least April 4, 2019. Several games that previously advertised RTX support still haven't received patches to enable it, while others are coming closer to release, so I suspect Nvidia will offer bundles with a larger variety of RTX-enabled games later this year. But, as we've noted, Metro Exodus is one of the best examples of Nvidia's raytracing and DLSS technology to date, and the developers are improving it with every update.

Update 3/6/2019: We previously reported that RTX 2070 and 2060 buyers get 2 out of the 3 games, but Nvidia's terms say they only get to pick a single game.
