* Looks like GMG is temporarily out of stock of Intel Starter keys, they mention they'll send the keys later but you might not want to risk it. There might be more in stock now. Thanks for the info thekuribo
Be sure to redeem your bronze, silver and gold rewards before 2nd August at 15:59 BST because it looks like they're removing them then. According to an email Uroboros received. On Twitter they mention 5th August, 4PM , but better safe than sorry.
I'm starting to feel like GMG mouthpiece considering that it's the second GMG thread I created in a little over a month but I thought it was a good deal to share and there's no thread yet.
If you buy a game from the Gold or Silver lists you get 4 games from the "Free Intel® Starter Pack" (5 if you sign for their newsletter) which include Star Trek: Bridge Crew and Raw Data (Raw Data has been replaced with dlc for: Archangel™: Hellfire) as the major stand outs + one other game from the gold or silver list depending of the game you bought. Depending of regional price you could get the games for less than $5 dollars.

What game you want a giveaway for? (Voting ends 24 hours from when thread went up)
Where are you seeing that Star Trek Bridge Crew and Raw Data are in the Intel Starter Pack? Also, are they Steam keys or direct download?
Just curious, because I'm very interested in picking those two up.
Here they mention some of the games in the pack. And yeah, they're steam. I already tried it myself, got Super Hot VR.
Edit: Here's the full list:
Nice! Thanks for the info, and that's the same game I'm looking at getting. :D
Can you confirm Star Trek Bridge Crew is a Steam key? It's rare for a Ubisoft game.
it is a steam key.
It's an exception. It's also sold as Steam key nearly everywhere, see ITAD and switch to tab "Activation/DRM".
It is a Steam key, yes. Activated it last night. :)
what a weird way to do a 5-10 dollar bundle. o.o
so lets get this straight:
Buy a silver/gold game
get 4 games from intel pack (5 if sub to newsletter)
get a voucher for 1 game from GMG for silver/gold
deal so confusing :(
It is kind of confusing, even more because you get a key you activate on intel's website and then when you choose the games you get a key for each game to use in GMG to actually get the games. But for the most part it's as you mentioned.
so you get a total of 6 games or 7 games with newsletter for buying 1 game?
Yeah. Some of the options in the Intel pack are DLC or currency (didn't pay too much attention) for online games, but there are 5 that are actually games to choose from.
What its the less expensive?
Might vary depending of your region, but in my region the cheapest is Darksiders II: Deathinitive Edition at less than $3 USD.
$8.60 in my region...
damn we get shafted
Been having issues activating the keys Intel gives you back on GMG - not sure why. Contacted support to see if they can help!
EDIT: All fixed. They had to do something to my account to make it work. So contact support if you have the same issue!
Hopefully you get it sort out, good luck!

Oh, I thought the game from the newsletter was just another pick from the same 10 options, now I regret not signing up for the newsletter to get GRID Autosport
Mind if I add your summation? I might have to skip the links as I'm not sure if there's a limit to the links you can add to a main thread. I remember there being some issues with that in other threads.
Yes, feel free to add my summary
Psst. Not all hope is lost!.
Thanks for the alert thread :)
For a second I was confused why it says Fanatical there, might want to change that :P
Pinball FX3 provides a Steam key directly in the starter pack
I think I might have missed it, when do they give you the option to subscribe to the newsletter?
When you put the code in the Intel website, it first asks to accept some terms and then asks if you want to sign to the newsletter, it even has another popup, asking you if you're sure you don't want the bonus software, which I confirmed not wanting because I thought it would just be one more from the list of ten.
Thanks, I was already falling asleep when I was signing up on their website and I didn't remember that.
Ok, I agreed to newsletter, there was no info of an extra game.
I can only choose from "PICK 4 OUT OF 10 GAME TITLES"
Where I can find this one from newsletter ?
Am I blind or I just need a coffe ?
Here, this'll help
Great deal if you were meaning to purchase something already. Been holding off purchasing The Outer Worlds until I know what their bonus free gift was and am happy enough to buy it. Always wanted Rage for a while now and happy to get it for free :)
Yeh , agreed .
Works out nice if you were gonna get or were thinking of getting a particular game anyway.
This way , you get your game with a load of free ones on top.
Thanks for the info - this is a great deal! Had my eye on Strange Brigade for a while and although it's slightly more expensive than Steam's sales price, all the extra free games made up for the little price difference :)
FYI, I signed up for the newsletter but I didn't get the extra game (yet). Maybe the email with the code takes a while before it reaches my inbox? :P
Can't say for sure, I actually decided not to sign up for the newsletter, just saw the mention.
If you're using a Gmail e-mail, don't forget to check your Promotions folder. Ever since they added special folders, e-mails keep getting lost in them, even when they're from established sources that you've been getting e-mails from [of the same type, even] for years. -.-;
Received the email around an hour ago. It's in my Primary inbox though.
A quick FYI - For those who subscribed to the newsletter, you may need to wait up to an hour before you receive an email from Intel.
This is what it looks like:
Oh, I got an email confirming sign up, but nothing about a bonus title.
Same for me.
The email I got was without a master key,
Just got a second email with masterkey ;)
I signed up for the newsletter yesterday, but got no mail from Intel so far. :(
Is anyone else disappointed that "Raw Data" and "Star Trek: Bridge Crew" aren't, in fact, related in theme?
Mm. The games at best match their previous Steam sales, and the majority seem to fail at that. The freebies seem to be about what you'd expect. Definitely seems to be more of an "I was going to get this game anyway, so let me get some free games with it" promotion than anything in line with the sale appeal that we'd expect from a bundle or similar promotion.
Well, their previous bundle status aside, the gold tier at least as a few high profile games like Arkham Asylum and Injustice, for those who missed them in previous bundles. Injustice doesn't seem to have gone out in any lower than 1.33 per-game bundle yet, either (which appears to be nearly twice the per-game bundle cost of the next most valuable [by that consideration] gold game).
Yeah the sale on it's own is not that great. But if you have VR or are interested in getting one at some point both those games seem to have a good reception. Also apparently the Star Trek game can be played without VR.
Humph, I refuse. I only accept a Bridge Crew which offers real, unfiltered, raw Data.
Thanks for the heads up, but GMG is making it way to messy for me.
First I have to make an angry-old-fart-post here to be corrected on which tiers gives what reward (thanks Aethyna and drbeckett;
Then I have to look through the games in two different tiers to see which ones I'd consider buying;
Then I have to go throw all the rewards for both tiers and compare to Steam so I don't get games I already own;
Continued on the first step, the Intel-reward is now thoroughly explained to me so even I understand how it works;
Then I have to go back to my original angry-old-fart-post and edit it. Twice. Because I was corrected twice. Because I'm stupid ;-).
Due to the amount of effort they're making me go through to just buy a bundle, I'm not going to.
To me, this is the equivalent of a travelling salesperson coming to my driveway, beeping the car horn to get me to go out there to ask what he wants. It's just lazy, and I'm not in for such a ''ride''.
The idea might be good with lots of choices, but the way it's done is just horrendously messy.
If you want to get the free games from Intel, you just need to check out the games in the Gold and Silver tiers.
Well you can see the link to the Intel site here were it says "Got your Intel® starter pack key? Redeem" but it's definitely quite messy.
Also as a correction it's on greenmangaming not Fanatical. And only two of the lists (Gold and Silver) gives you the Intel key, which is more to add to the confusion.
Yep ,needlessly convoluted.
Very ,very ,messy and opaque but is is possible to wade through it ,with some help from users here.
I'm sure many would just be turned off by it.
They don't seem bothered at GMG about making sales easily.
Or maybe they're trying to hide the fact that it's not a great deal unless you were wanting the main purchase anyway. :P
Trying to blind you with misdirection :)
Let's face it .most of the sites are at it.
If it's not "mystery loot-boxes", it's weird stuff like this.
I have jumped those hoops myself, many times, but this one was just one hoop too many ;-)
@drbeckett - Maybe you'd like to also mention in the OP that by buying any game from the Gold, Silver or Bronze tiers, you'll also get 1 giveaway entry per purchased game for GMG's Summer Sale Giveaway event. Each person/account can get up to 5 entries max
Thanks, added the info.
the noice british mess only GMG can guarantee!

ok, lazy-bastard-cheap-me bought the whateva: Strategy Bundle .99€ - Voucher -20% = .79€
Thanks for the direct links.
If only one could increase the display size.
Thanks icaio .
Why is it always steamgift users who have to come to the rescue and make things simple for us.
That does it, I'm getting a Ryzen. Why the hell do they care where I come from when I'm redeeming something I paid for?
Did you get someone to help you claim the games?
Edit: Khayta recommended using Opera's VPN and that seemed to work, so you might want to try that.
Edit 2: But the recent Ryzen do look good. I'm not updating any time soon but if they keep that up I might go with AMD next upgrade.
Yeah, Khayta's tip worked nicely.
But that's not the problem, the problem is they think it's normal to block VPNs for people who already purchased stuff. Blocking VPNs before purchase is douchy already, but I can understand that due to license reasons they must enforce georestrictions, etc., so at least that's understandable. Blocking VPNs after purchase is like "eh, your IP was good enough to give us money, but it's not good enough for us to deliver the goods" :x
(and yes, Ryzens are pretty nice ATM anyway ^^)
I was strict with myself and only paid attention to the bronze deal titles, and I've come away very happy. Got 4 games, 3 of which were on my wish list:
The Dark Stone from Mebara - $0.80
Schein - free
The Artifact - $0.74
The Apogee Throwback Pack - free
I have them already but yep ,some nice additions to your Steam library and don't cost the earth either.
Thanks for the heads up. Since I'll have a VR-capable PC soon, I'm tempted.

EDIT 2: Anyone else managed to unlock all from Intel Software Starter Pack???
You can only claim 4 out of the 10 items listed in the Intel starter pack and if you subscribe, you can then claim another 1 more item out of 5 choices given
As you can see, I revealed all keys on my Intel page. I'm aware what should be redeemable. I just started one by one, completely unaware I should choose what I wanted the most, but luckily got them all. As for newsletter, yeah, few hours later after revealing GRID Autosport, all other games are giving "We are temporarily out of codes and working to reload our system. Check back soon." info when try to reveal.
I bought my Gold tier game just few minutes after sale started, maybe there was a temporary bug.
EDIT: Yup, just found out on Reddit that I'm not the only one. There was a bug on Intel side during early stage of sale. It's a great deal anyway.
Ah I see, I wasn't aware that you made your purchase a few minute right after the sale launched. Had no idea there was a bug either
Yep, I bought a silver tier game and was able to grab all 10 items from the Intel Starter Pack as well.
I didn't realise the newsletter Master Key was separate thing so I wasn't able to check if we could get all 5 newsletter games though haha
This comment was deleted 1 month ago.
Can someone explain me the ""Free" gold game reward (choose 1 out of 15 games)"
So I got a "100% Free Gold Reward" key
What list can I choose from? and where do I enter this key?
There are tabs "Gold/Silver/Bronze", choose Gold (should be default, tho).
"Buy" game and just use your code during checkout to make it $0.
I got Next up Hero
100% Free Gold/Silver/Bronze Reward code. If you buy game with G in top left corner, you will get Gold code. S-Silver, B-Bronze.
All Gold games for now (I guess they'll add more today):
https://www.greenmangaming.com/summer-sale/gold/view-all/ (216 games)
All Silver games:
https://www.greenmangaming.com/summer-sale/silver/view-all/ (248 games)
All Bronze games:
https://www.greenmangaming.com/summer-sale/bronze/view-all/ (1003 games)
You have to pick from here.
This seems like a really good deal to me at least.
I bought ReCore and got for free these: (SILVER TIER)
Star Trek Bridge Crew(gives you steam key and NOT uplay key surprisingly to me)
There came an echo
Gaz guzzlers extreme
Got 10% off voucher for any purchase so going to get one bronze tier game and get another game free with it.
Also got free Grid Autosport for signing up for newsletter as OP stated.
Got Lethal VR (Bronze) and got Raining blobs for free. All in all I think I got a good deal on good VR games and decent non-vr games.
I'm thinking about buying a bronze-tiered game 'cause I've got it wishlisted and it's a nice price, is there any "hidden gem" between the bronze free games I can claim?
So if someone buys something cheap from bronze, sign up for a newsletter and get one out of those 5 free (Grid Autosport) or goes only for silver and gold?
only silver e gold, bronze has its own list of free games, but only one gmg free game, not the whole interl thing
But isn't it you get a free game with your purchase, and signing up for newsletter is another free thing?
Above mentioned newsletter sign up is related to Intel. And you are only eligible for the Intel promo by purchasing a silver or gold product.
it is pretty confusing, yeah XD
In case anyone else is wondering where to redeem the Intel Starter Pack key: https://softwareoffer.intel.com/redeem.
tyvm just what I needed ;)
thank you 🙃
Nice. You can buy "Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance" for 5 € and get the Gold Tier gift. :)
How to subscribe to the newsletter? I dont see the option anywhere in my masterkey page. ??¿
It's after you put your key in the Intel website. Here is a more detailed explanation.
Thank you, very helpful.
That last email should turn up eventually for the extra game.
They give you 5 games to choose 1 from.
I chose Nevermind (walking sim) for my one.
So you have to wait for the newsletter email to get a link to another page where you can then get the 5th game?
Yes, you get this mail with a code and a link :
Merci bien ! 🤗
Alright, thanks 👍
