Destiny 2: Forsaken Rockstar Promotion Offers Prizes, Competition Access | Gaming
Activision and Bungie have announced a new partnership with Rockstar Energy drinks in promotion for the release of Destiny 2: Forsaken. As with past promotions, this latest one carries the promise of in-game rewards and prizes but this time around there are 8 different themed cans to collect.
Since neither Bungie/Activision nor Rockstar has officially announced the Destiny 2 promotion there is still a lot of mystery surrounding it. All we know is that fans will be tasked with collecting can codes in order to “win prizes and earn in-game competition access.”
Prizes are nothing new for Destiny 2, which has had plenty of themed giveaways and promotions, including with Rockstar before the launch of Destiny 2 proper. However, the in-game competition access is curious. Could Rockstar codes give players access to some form of in-game tournament? Or is this more like a giveaway, where every code grants entry?
In the past, Destiny 2 promotions have given players in-game loot or double XP but it appears that Activision is going a different route this time around. This Rockstar Energy drink promotion sounds more like it will be focused on prizes, presumably those with a Destiny 2 theme. We wouldn’t be surprised to see the recently announced Destiny 2 Collection offered as one of those prizes.
In addition to the prizes and competition access, the Rockstar Energy drinks are likely to be popular with Destiny 2 fans for their unique designs. There are 8 different Rockstar cans in total, with a different Destiny 2: Forsaken character on the cover. They are:
- Lord Shaxx
- Uldren Sov
With a combat stream slated for later today, it’s possible that Activision will officially reveal the Rockstar Energy promotion this week. Then, we can better understand what competition access means and figure out if it’s going to be worth going out and collecting as many cans as possible.
Destiny 2: Forsaken releases September 4, 2018 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
