September 12, 2013, East Dundee, IL – VisionTek Products LLC, (VisionTek®) http://www.visiontek.com, a leading manufacturer of award-winning, high-performance upgrades and accessories for PC and Apple Macintosh® computers, announced today that it is the first Advance Micro Devices (AMD®) graphics card designer in North America to offer an exclusive Pirate101 Game Add-on Offer. Specially marked VisionTek Radeon™ graphics card boxes with key code sheet inserts are expected to begin shipping from VisionTek by the end of September and will be the first products on the market to offer this game add-on offer.

To qualify for the Pirate101 Game Add-on Offer, a VisionTek Radeon™ HD 7750, HD 6670, HD 6570, HD 6450 graphics card must be purchased from VisionTek or authorized VisionTek resellers by December 31, 2013 or when the supply of key codes is exhausted.

Pirate101 is a free downloadable Massively Multiplayer Online (MMO) pirate adventure game with flying pirate ships, board game combat, and far off worlds that’s safe for kids and fun for players of all ages. The game enables players to take the helm of their very own ship and sail into a vast, pirate-inspired universe from breathtaking cloud-top skyways to ancient ruins filled with lost treasure.

MMORPG.com awarded Pirate101 the 2012 Player’s Choice Game of the Year honors and said it “proved a family friendly MMO can have a legion of loyal fans behind a deceptively deep and engaging strategy MMORPG.” RTSGuru.com gave Pirate101 a Best of E3 Hybrid Strategy Award because it offers “turn-based grid-movement RTS goodness at its finest and the crew you build is like Final Fantasy Tactics on the high seas.”
