Hi fellow Steemian Gamers, before I explain in more detail my question I thought I'd provide you all with a picture of me riding a giant War Drake from Middle Earth Shadow Of War at this year's EGX event in Birmingham.
Right so recently I have been seeing more and more examples of new games being used to promote certain food and drink products in the UK. Below are a few examples of items I have seen recently that I wanted to show you guys.
The first image below is a packet of Chicken Fridge Raiders which contain a code for the new Call Of Duty World War 2 Game.
So if you are one of the people that enjoys this snack you are lucky enough to receive a code for double XP on the new CoD game. I tried to find out how long the double XP lasted but couldn't find that information on the packet. From past experience the codes normally only last an hour so I imagine this would be the same.
The second product I found was a can of Monster Energy which contained a code under the ring pull for items on the new Assassin's Creed Origins game.
Again not much information could be found on the can itself but I have been told the codes are used to download exclusive in game items. Although I am not sure how accurate this information is.
In addition to Monster Energy I have also seen the Rockstar Energy drink company providing codes for the new Destiny 2 Game but they didn't have that in the store I was in.
So fellow Steemian Gamers my question is this, are these products being promoted by the games? Or are the products being used to promote the games?
I'm confused because neither one of the 2 really needs any additional promotion for example Monster Energy is probably the most well known energy drink brand out there, but equally Call Of Duty is probably going to be the highest grossing game of the year?
Which way round do you think it is and what are your thoughts on the whole thing?
Personally I think it's unnecessary but let me know in the comments below.
All these products were available in my local Co-Op store and I am unsure of their worldwide availability.
