Nvidia and Bethesda are offering a solution for hundreds of gamers who haven’t been able to get their hands on an RTX 3080 Ti graphics card. In addition to the 300 cards that are up for grabs, the promo includes a copy of Doom Eternal Deluxe Edition and a few other exclusive collectibles.
But there’s a catch. The lucky buyers will have to be picked out in a raffle. Nvidia teamed up with the publisher to create The Doom Eternal GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Demon Slayer Bundle, and for a low price of $1,450, a shiny new Founder’s Edition graphics card can be yours. Shipping costs aren’t included in that figure.
The rules are simple – head over to the official raffle website and sign up. After the competition closes, Bethesda and Nvidia will announce who the 300 lucky winners are and how they can purchase their Doom-branded bundles. The winners will have just 48 hours to complete the purchase, and in case someone misses the deadline, their entry will be raffled again. The raffle is also available across Europe, with the exception of Italy.
Aside from the GPU, the bundle includes an adorable little Doomslayer with titanium skin. There’s also an oversized mouse mat with The Ancient Gods illustration, a Doom Eternal t-shirt, a Doomslayer plushie, and a UAC backpack. On top of that, Bethesda will throw in a $100 coupon for its gear store.
Even though it was only recently released, the GPU intended to replace the RTX 2080 graphics cards is already in short supply. An ongoing crisis within production and distribution chains and the crypto mining craze led to the cards being sold out almost as soon as they hit the shelves. Whatever remains can only be purchased at highly inflated prices. While the raffle is welcome news, it’ll likely be quite some time before gamers can purchase RTX 3080 Ti graphics cards at reasonable prices.
