Activision has hinted at the first batches of downloadable content for the upcoming Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
, with the existence of a planned map pack being proclaimed on a tie-in energy drink.
Yes, it's a bit weird isn't it? It's a sentence we doubt we'll ever say again, ever.
According to IGN
, Activision struck a deal with Monster energy drinks to launch a Modern Warfare 2
branded run of the caffeine juice, with a competition on the cans listing Modern Warfare 2
map pack as a prize.
The competition claims it will have 5000 Modern Warfare 2
map packs to give away, with an expected release date of Spring 2010. Other prizes include dashboard themes, copies of the game for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, plus free drinks.
Activision has previously promised that there will be at least two map packs released for Modern Warfare 2
, though whether the Spring 2010 one is the first or second batch is unclear.
Monster Energy will begin selling the branded drinks later this month in the US, with boxes of six and four available to buy. Those who buy a box of six can apparently get involved in the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Combat Training Experience
- an online event hosted by Infinity Ward. Yippee.
