Fans of the Halo franchise may remember the debut of Mountain Dew's Game Fuel formula during the release of Halo 3. Mountain Dew may have flirted with promotions for Modern Warfare 3 and World of Warcraft, but Game Fuel is returning to the franchise that made the flavor popular.
PepsiCo and Frito-Lay are continuing their gaming cross promotion this year with Halo 4. Alongside the return of Mountain Dew's special Game Fuel flavor, specially marked packages of Mountain Dew and Doritos will come with a code that can be entered on their promotional website.
Gamers can find codes on specially marked packages between October 15 and November 6 which will queue double experience for Halo 4 and enter them to win great prizes like a Halo 4 Xbox 360 bundle, Limited Edition copy of Halo 4 or a Warthog toy. These codes must be used before January 31, 2013 and the double experience matches must be completed before March 31, 2013 or they will be forfeited.
Each bottle of Mountain Dew will grant 3 double experience matches, but a 12-pack will grant 6 matches and Wal-mart's 24-pack will unlock 12 matches. Doritos buyers can also unlock 3 matches per bag, however Wal-Mart's 11.5 oz. bag will actually unlock 12 double experience matches. Gamers who redeem codes for both a Mountain Dew product and Doritos product will be granted two bonus double experience matches, but this bonus is only permitted once per week.
Are you fully prepared for the release of Halo 4 on November 6 or will you be stocking up on double experience?
