Destiny 2's console release is now less than one month away, and its publisher Activision is already ramping up marketing. Now,
if you've lost all hope in humanity if you really want to get ahead of the game this fall, Activision has paired up with Pop-Tarts and Rockstar energy drinks to deliver exclusive rewards to Destiny 2 gamers. Yes, really.
For those looking to snack on toasted treats, each box of Destiny 2-labeled Pop-Tarts is paired with a redeemable "XP boost" code. Redeemable via the Kellogg's rewards page, these codes will increase your speed of progression once the game launches, although the specifics are yet to be disclosed. Each box of Pop-Tarts will also sport "custom-designed, collectible" packaging based on Destiny 2's subclasses (if you're the kind of guy who collects Pop-Tarts boxes, I guess).
If you're wanting to destroy your body with caffeine and sugar, Rockstar Energy is also providing exclusive rewards through Destiny-branded cans. For every can, codes will be included to unlock in-game gear, although it's currently unclear exactly what's up for grabs. Daily and weekly lotteries will also be taking place, giving lucky purchasers a chance to win PlayStation 4 Pro systems, Collector's Editions of Destiny 2, and motorcycles
ruined by rocking Destiny 2/Rockstar branding.
Although Pop-Tarts' promotion appears to be limited to the United States, sweepstakes from Rockstar drinks will be available across the US, Canada, UK, and Germany. Both of these promotions kick off from September 1, five days ahead of the game's console launch on September 6. Are you planning to be the next corporate slave?
