NVIDIA Corporation and Activision, Inc. today announced that the top-selling, critically acclaimed PC game, Call of Duty, will be bundled with select GeForce FX graphics cards. Beginning today, participating add-in card vendors will offer a complete retail version of the intense, World War II-based, first person action title for free with select GeForce FX 5900 series graphics cards, delivering a stellar out-of-box gaming experience to consumers this holiday season.

"Call of Duty delivers the kind of gripping cinematic intensity that up until now, fans have only been able to experience in movies," said Dusty Welch, vice president of global brand marketing, Activision, Inc. "This special offer from NVIDIA and its partners presents a great opportunity for PC gamers to experience Call of Duty on a state of the art graphics platform."

Since its release, Call of Duty has topped sales charts worldwide, and has earned a number of editors' choice awards, making it one of the most sought-after games of the year. Call of Duty takes advantage of the award-winning GeForce FX family of graphics processing units (GPU) to bring the realism and intensity of battlefield action to life, with cinematic style reminiscent of epic World War II movies.

"Bundling Call of Duty with select GeForce FX 5900 series cards is an awesome opportunity for consumers to experience, first-hand, what the buzz is about," said David Roman, vice president of corporate marketing at NVIDIA. "The value proposition of the 5900 series speaks for itself. By adding a great game like Call of Duty to the box, what gamer wouldn't put it on his holiday wish list?"
