Samsung Announces Free Far Cry 4 Download with Purchase of 840 EVO SSD

Samsung has announced a new gaming bundle offer through a partnership with Ubisoft. Available until supplies last, consumers who purchase the Samsung 840 EVO SSD will have access to the full version of the new Far Cry 4 game as a free download.

The Samsung EVO is an ideal SSD solution for gaming, including with Far Cry 4, allowing for decreased loading times, enhanced responsiveness, and overall improved gameplay. In addition, players will also experience longer and less interrupted gaming sessions due to the drive’s low idle power consumption and exceptional multi-tasking capabilities, which helps to eliminate choppy performance. In our review we found the SSD to post very impressive gaming scores, only a few points behind the leaders, but with a much more attractive cost profile.
