If you didn't pick up a new graphics card as part of the AMD 'Never Settle' bundle deal, the red camp isn't finished trying to tempt you over: the bundle has been updated with some new-release titles.

The original 'Never Settle' bundle distinguished itself, daft name aside, by offering buyers of an AMD Radeon HD 7900 series board copies of Sleeping Dogs, Hitman: Absolution and Far Cry 3 along with a 20 per cent off voucher for Medal of Honor: Warfighter. While those buying lesser cards would receive steadily lesser rewards - two AMD Radeon HD 7800 series boards got you everything bar Sleeping Dogs, while a single AMD Radeon HD 7800 series board dropped Hitman: Absolution from the list - it was still a good deal for those who had all-but decided on a Radeon HD board anyway.

Now, the offer has been upgraded and extended. The new bundle will see buyers of an AMD Radeon HD 7900 series board pick up Crysis 3: Hunter Edition and BioShock Infinite, while those opting for the cheaper AMD Radeon HD 7800 series will get BioShock Infinite and Tomb Raider. Buyers with a big-old budget who are looking at a pair of AMD Radeon HD 7900 series boards for use in CrossFire will get all three, while also picking up Far Cry 3, Hitman: Absolution and Sleeping Dogs for an impressive six games in total.

The most well-heeled gamer, however, will find the biggest bundle comes with the Asus ROG Ares II, a ridiculously overspecced dual-GPU AMD Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition board with 6GB of GDDR5 RAM and in-built sealed-loop watercooling. Pick up one of those, and as well as a panicked letter from your bank manager you'll find every bundle game minus - for some reason - Tomb Raider along with Dirt: Showdown, Deus Ex: Human Revolution and Nexuiz for a total of eight games.

Running through the list, you may spot one or two titles that aren't yet available. Where a game hasn't been released into the market, buyers will receive a code that will be good for redemption after release - in other words, buyers don't get early access to the titles.

AMD has confirmed that the above game bundles are valid across Europe, the Middle East, Africa, North America, Australia and New Zealand except the Asus ROG Ares II bundle, which is - for some reason - a UK exclusive. All bundles are valid for purchases of the aforementioned boards from approved retailers and e-tailers from now until the end of the year, or until AMD sees the free game offer eating into its profits - whichever comes first.
