You might remember Destiny 1’s weird Red Bull promotion that offered double XP and an exclusive quest in The Taken King expansion. It turns out that Destiny 2 is getting a similar promotion, but this one involves Pop-Tarts and Rockstar energy drinks.
Rockstar and Pop-Tarts will sell Destiny 2-themed products, and they’ll come with in-game items. For Rockstar, if you grab one of the Destiny-branded cans, you’ll get some sort of gear for your character, although Activision hasn’t yet specified what the gear will be. You’ll also get a chance to win a prize in Rockstar’s daily and weekly lotteries, with the grand prize being Destiny 2-themed motorcycles.
Pop-Tarts, meanwhile, will offer players an XP boost with every Destiny-themed box. There’ll also be “custom-designed, collectible packs highlighting each Guardian Subclass,” if you want to collect Pop-Tarts boxes.
Both of these promotions begin on September 1. As for Destiny 2, the game launches on September 6 for PS4 and Xbox One, and for PC on October 24. The PC version is getting a beta test later in August, and you can read about what it includes here.
