ROG and Gamesplanet team up to bring you exclusive savings through Game Deals

Oct 23, 2019 Written by:ROG Article


A top-tier gaming machine isn’t complete without a bevy of games to play on it. To give members of the Republic of Gamers a fuller and richer experience right out of the box, we’re introducing Game Deals, delivering exclusive savings of up to 50% off a huge range of titles. An impressive collection of general discounts will be available every day, and you'll get access to at least five special offers each week with pricing only available to ROG members.

Created in collaboration with Gamesplanet, new Game Deals are available for purchase globally through our Armoury Crate software starting October 21. Gamesplanet is an official partner to many of the game industry’s top publishers, so Game Deals may includea huge variety of titles from Activision Blizzard, Ubisoft, Rockstar, 2K Games, Bethesda, Bandai Namco, Konami, and many more.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is among the first special deals available the week of October 21. As an ROG VIP, you can pre-order one of the year’s most anticipated upcoming titles at a special price. Register today, and you'll be able to start saving on games as soon as new Game Deals launch.

Getting the ROG VIP treatment

Anyone who’s ever purchased an ROG product is eligible to become an ROG VIP. All you need to do is create an ROG ID and register your device.

There are two main ways to create an account. You can create your ROG ID at the ASUS official website and follow the prompts to confirm your account and register your device. Alternatively, you can create an ROG ID within the Armoury Crate app. All ROG laptops come with the app pre-installed, but Armoury Crate software can also be downloaded from the Microsoft Store. To make your ROG ID and register your device, just navigate to the “User Center” within Armoury Crate and follow the instructions there.

As a registered ROG VIP, you’ll get exclusive pricing on select titles each week as well as access to a vast collection of everyday deals, all powered by Gamesplanet. The European company has made a name for itself as a trusted games seller throughout the UK, France, and Germany since 2006, when ROG itself was first founded. It’s exciting to be able to bring Gamesplanet's collection of games deals to our audience, and even help expand its reach globally to all ROG users outside of China.

Complete your games collection

Thanks to Gamesplanet's breadth of partnerships, ROG Game Deals encompass everything from massive AAA blockbusters to cult indie hits. You can find pre-orders for future favorites alongside a host of critically acclaimed classics. On top of the deals Gamesplanet offers to all users, ROG VIPs will get exclusive access to a weekly, rotating calendar of at least 5 major game deals not available anywhere else.

When you’ve found a deal that you just have to have, you’ll need to log in with your ROG ID to complete your purchase. First-time users can use their ROG ID to automatically create a Gamesplanet account, or you can log into your existing Gamesplanet account to complete your purchase.

Downloaded titles can soon be added to your Armoury Crate Game Library, coming soon in a future release of the app. The Game Library will organize all of the games downloaded to your PC in one handy place. It can be used as a launcher for the games in your collection, or to organize and browse through all of the titles you’re currently playing.

Better loot through Armoury Crate

We want ROG users to be able to achieve the perfect gaming experience, tailored to their own unique preferences. Armoury Crate software was created to give users access to vital customization and system optimization settings in a single, easily accessible utility.

Armoury Crate allows you to set specific lighting colors and effects for your PC, and coordinate it with Aura Sync to set the perfect mood across your gaming environment. Its Scenario Profiles let you customize your system behavior further, automatically switching settings like lighting and operating modes to adapt to whatever task is at hand. The utility of Armoury Crate has even expanded to a mobile app that you can use to monitor the CPU and GPU load of ROG laptops while overclocking, or disable your touchpad and windows keys to minimize accidental presses.

Of course, all of these personalized touches matter most in combination with the games that you love to play. By incorporating Game Deals from Gamesplanet into this central hub, we can finally deliver everything you could want from a gaming machine, from deep personalization to exclusive offers on great games.

Celebrating Deals

We’re kicking off our first week of ROG-exclusive Game Deals on October 21 with exclusive pricing on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, The Outer World, eFootball PES 2020, Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire, and Age of Wonders: Planetfall. These deals are only available for one week, so register early and reap the rewards.

To make our launch week even better for all ROG VIPs, we’re also giving away two games for free: Regions of Ruin, a critically beloved 2D side-scrolling RPG where you can build settlements and explore a challenging open world, and We are the Dwarves, a real-time tactical adventure game where you control three Dwarven astronauts on an expedition to save their people from extinction.

Download Armoury Crate and create your ROG ID today to start seeing the amazing game deals available now.

Aura Ready to Roll

Along with our partnership with Gamesplanet, we’ve also been working closely with developers to offer ROG users a more immersive gaming experience.

Within the “Game Deals” tab in Armoury Crate, you can find select Aura Ready games that highlight titles fully compatible with Aura RGB lighting. Pick up and play games like Call of Duty: Black Ops and Anthem, and you’ll get to see cool custom lighting effects triggered by in-game actions for a more immersive, personal gaming experience. We’re working closely with many developers to expand our Aura Ready collection, so keep an eye on the titles offered here to get a unique gaming experience on ROG hardware.
