AMD is giving away 1,000 license codes for Battlefield 4 on Facebook. To enter, all you need to do join AMD's Red Team then navigate to the Gaming Evolved Facebook page and Like the contest announcement post for your shot at winning one of the game codes.
The company’s decision to give away so many free copies of the game is certainly generous and it may even help to ease some of the tension surrounding their Battlefield 4 bundle. If you recall, AMD announced earlier this month that anyone who purchases an R9-series graphics card would receive a free copy of the game.
The problem, however, is that the offer didn’t apply to individuals that may have already bought the card before the announcement. What’s more, it was later revealed that only some cards from some vendors would actually ship with the title. There are still bundles to be had for select R9-series cards but you’ll need to keep your eyes peeled to make sure they come with the game before you pull the trigger.
As per the rules, contestants must be 17 years of age or older to participate. Those who reside in Florida or New York aren’t allowed to enter and neither can people living in China, Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Sudan and Syria. The company promises to randomly select 1,000 winners on December 3. A complete list of rules and conditions can be found on AMD’s website by clicking here.
