Ubisoft and Pepsi Co. are teaming up to bring fans of both a special promotion for the publisher’s upcoming release of the Division 2, and you’ll need to stock up on Game Fuel to get in the game.
Fans can gain access to the private beta of Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 by pre-ordering a new line of Mountain Dew AMP Game Fuel drinks from Walmart.com. The drink are currently on the big box retailer’s site for pre-order in 12-packs for $20 a piece, and come in a variety of flavors including Charged Cherry Blast, Charged Berry Blast, Charged Original Dew, and Charged Tropical Strike. On top of that, the first 1,000 customers to pre-order their 12-pack of Game Fuel will get a Bonus Prize Pack valued at $25.
Judging from the fine print of the deal released alongside the attached promotional material, instructions on how to receive your code will be sent out to those who preordered the drinks in mid-January when Walmart begins shipping the beverages.
It isn’t out of the ordinary for publishers to partner with various food and beverage companies to promote an upcoming release, with series like Halo regularly partnering with the Mountain Dew brand. What’s out of the ordinary is the process of pre-ordering a drink to gain access to the specific promotion.
Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 follows the events of its predecessor, with the setting moving from New York City to the United State’s capital, Washington, DC. The game is set to release on March 15th, 2019.
