If you’re in the market for a new Nvidia video card, the company wants to give you The Crew 2 along with it.

Those who purchase a GTX 1080 or GTX 1080 Ti for or a qualifying desktop or laptop, Nvidia will hand them a copy of The Crew 2 standard edition.

To claim the free game, customers should ensure the seller is participating in the “Join The Crew” GeForce GTX bundle. Otherwise, Nvidia will be unable to provide download codes and coupons for purchases made through a non-participating retailer.

The Crew 2 on PC features 4K (UHD) and Ultra-wide 21:9 aspect ratio support, support for up to three monitors,  auto-setting detection, video presets, and custom options.

It also supports various driving wheels and joysticks depending upon platform.
