Want to unlock the best guns before everyone else in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 to get that edge? Well if you do want to take advantage of a never-ending stream of double XP, you may wish to consider purchasing some Mountain Dew. The two "Game Fuel" flavors are coming back, and in a unique promotion with Activision, purchasing a bottle will give you access to double experience time, just like any other double XP weekend.
- "For many of our gamers, Call of Duty and Mountain Dew go hand in hand, and together we wanted to deliver gamers a one-of-a-kind program around the epic Modern Warfare 3 multiplayer."
- — Tim Ellis, Activision's chief marketing officer
The "Rank Up Your Game with Double XP" promotion will begin in October 10th, giving fans a chance to stock up on codes before the game's November launch. There will be two varieties of Game Fuel; one, cherry-citrus, was also sold in 2009 whilst the other is a brand new, tropical flavor, co-developed with Activision to promote the new video game.
However, for those of us who don't like Mountain Dew's taste or strange colour, there is a lucky alternative; the XP promotion also extends to Doritos tortilla chips, through the "Power of One" program.
This isn't the first time this year that a drinks company has given away free in-game content with their products; earlier this year 7-Eleven offered exclusive downloadable content for Sony's Killzone 3 and LittleBigPlanet 2 titles in exchange for Slurpee purchases in stores in the U.S.
