Western Digital has announced a special limited edition Battlefield 2042 version of its WD Black SN750 SE NVMe SSD. The tiny but huge storage drive will come as a Battlefield 2042 bundle for the biggest fans of the franchise. And in case you were wondering, yes, the bundle comes with extra goodies.
It wouldn’t be a bundle without some extras after all. You can pick up the storage drive in two different sizes – a 500GB model for $115 or a 1TB model for $180. The WD Black Battlefield 2042 SSD bundle also comes with a full game code for Battlefield 2042 in the standard edition. So by buying this particular SSD you can also set yourself up with a free copy of the game.
What’s more is that you still get pre-order bonuses even though you didn’t buy the game itself. Keep in mind however that the game can’t be downloaded and played until after it releases later this Fall. The NVMe SSD is built on PCIe Gen4 technology and Western Digital says it’s capable of speeds up to 3,600MB/S.
The WD Black Battlefield 2042 SSD bundle is not available globally
While this might be a sought after product by fans worldwide, it unfortunately won’t be available globally. Western Digital says that it will only go on sale in the US, Canada, and in countries across Europe. Locking out basically everywhere else.
Both models are already up for sale on the official Western Digital website through a pre-order. And you can pre-order the 500GB at Amazon. You can also buy both models at Best Buy, and at least one of the models is available at places like GameStop and Adorama.
Both drives will ship in as early as 1-2 weeks
While the timing will definitely vary depending on where you buy it, Western Digital says it’ll be shipping these new SSDs in as little as 1-2 weeks. Amazon meanwhile says free delivery by August 10, which is about the same timeframe. Best Buy is a little bit further out on both models, though, as they will be shipping in 3-4 weeks with an estimated delivery by August 19.
In addition to the announcement today, Western Digital has released a video that highlights the drive and talks about its features. Which you can view above.
