RIDGEFIELD PARK, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Samsung Electronics America, Inc. announced an exclusive collaboration with Ubisoft, offering a free PC download of Watch_Dogs 2 with the purchase of qualifying Samsung solid state drives (SSDs) and its newest Curved Gaming Monitors. The partnership delivers gamers an incredible package for high-level gameplay.
“Samsung is dedicated to providing best-in-class technology to gamers, so we’re excited to offer Ubisoft’s highly anticipated Watch_Dogs 2 as an added value with our industry-leading SSDs and monitors,” said Andrew Sivori, Vice President of CE-IT Marketing at Samsung Electronics America. “Our high-performance SSDs and stunning new monitors deliver an enhanced gaming experience, providing exceptional visuals and lag-free gameplay.”
The newest installment in the blockbuster Watch_Dogs franchise, Watch_Dogs 2, centers on Marcus Holloway, a brilliant hacker from the San Francisco Bay Area. As part of the notorious Dedsec hacker group, Holloway is on a mission to expose the dangers of ctOS 2.0, which is being used to monitor and manipulate citizens on a massive scale. With incredible visual representations of the San Francisco Bay Area, intuitive controls and a brand new seamless multiplayer experience, Watch_Dogs 2 focuses on giving freedom back to who it belongs: the people.
“This exclusive bundle allows gamers to truly immerse themselves in one of the most anticipated titles of the year,” said Tony Key, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Sales, Ubisoft. “With the option of a Samsung SSD or Curved Gaming Monitor, consumers can enhance their Watch_Dogs 2 gameplay experience with faster load times, seamless graphics and incredible user interface elements.”
Samsung SSDs Boost Performance and Reduce Load Times
With Samsung’s proprietary V-NAND flash memory technology, Samsung SSDs offer high capacities, blazing-fast speeds and exceptional reliability. SSDs achieve significantly higher data transfer speeds compared to hard disk drives (HDDs) and as a result, gamers experience a reduction in load times and fewer game lags, so gamers spend more time playing and less time waiting. The power efficiency and high endurance of Samsung SSDs ensure smooth and continuous performance during game play. Samsung offers a variety of SSDs in different form factors and capacities to fit any gamer’s storage needs.
Quantum Dot-Enabled Curved Gaming Monitors Provide Stunning Visual Experience
The integration of quantum dot technology enables the CFG70 (available in 24 and 27 inch) and CF791(34-inch) Curved Gaming Monitors to display an incredible range of vivid and crisp colors, providing greater depth to blacks, sharpening color intricacies and increasing the nuances of game play. Both monitors leverage AMD FreeSync Technology over HDMI to synchronize screen refresh rates with users’ AMD graphics cards. This compatibility reduces input latency, stutter and lag to produce a uniform full-screen game display. Furthermore, each monitor features an exceptional curvature (1,500R for the CF791 and 1,800R for the CFG70), which envelops users to create the feeling that they’re part of the game.
