Samsung Black Friday deals includes free “Watch Dogs 2”

Samsung Monitors and SSDs will be on quite a few holiday lists this year, but the manufacturer will be adding a special bonus on select monitors that you should look for over the Black Friday weekend. This year Samsung has partnered with Ubisoft, offering a free PC download of the new release “Watch_Dogs 2” with the purchase of qualifying Samsung solid state drives (SSDs) and its newest Curved Gaming Monitors.

“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.”

“Watch_Dogs” is the latest release in the franchise, following 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.

“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’s V-NAND flash memory is powering the company’s SSDs this year, offering fast-speeds and higher data transfer speeds compared to hard disk drives. Samsung will be offering a variety of SSDs in different form factors and capacities to fit any gamer’s storage needs.

If you are shopping for gaming monitors, one of the big buzzwords over at Samsung is “quantum dot technology,” which 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.

The Watch_Dogs 2 PC download code is available with purchase of the following Samsung products, including the 960 PRO SSD (512GB, 1TB, 2TB), 960 EVO SSD (500GB, 1TB), 850 PRO SSD (512GB, 1TB, 2TB), 850 EVO SSD (500GB, 1TB, 2TB, 4TB), 850 EVO M.2 SSD (500GB, 1TB), 850 EVO mSATA SSD (500GB, 1TB), and the Portable SSD T3 (500GB, 1TB, 2TB).

If you are shopping for monitors, check out the Samsung CFG70 Curved Gaming Monitor (24-inch), Samsung CFG70 Curved Gaming Monitor (27-inch) and the Samsung CF791 Curved Monitor (34-inch).

The bundle promotion is now available at select retailers through December 31st, 2016 or while supplies last. You can find a collection of Samsung’s SSDs and Monitors on authorized retailers like on Samsung’s official storefront at Amazon.com
