Activision, Bungie, and Red Bull today announced a partnership that will bring a new quest to players of Destiny, marking the first time a video-game, or any third party brand, has ever appeared on the iconic Red Bull can.
Access to the quest will be available on specially-marked cans of Red Bull, redeemable through www.RedBullQuest.com. Each Red Bull can will also include bonus XP to help players prepare for this epic quest. Players can start using the bonus XP throughout the summer, with the in-game quest kicking off following the launch of The Taken King, the latest addition to the Destiny universe scheduled for release on September 15, 2015.
“This partnership brings two brands synonymous with adventure together to offer Destiny players a unique opportunity to further advance their Guardians in the Destiny universe,” said Tim Ellis, Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer for Activision. “Whether a player is new to Destiny or with us since launch, the special quest promotion will help give them the ‘wings’ and experience boost to take on The Taken King.”
“I’m really excited to be a part of this partnership,” said Michael “Flamesword” Chaves, Red Bull eSport athlete. “I love that Red Bull and Destiny have a shared sense of adventure, camaraderie, and pushing boundaries that both brands embody. As a former Coach of OpTic Gaming and Team Captain of my current squad, I’m always looking to help others be at their best. I am very much looking forward to coaching the Destiny community through the quest and help everyone Become Legend!”
The first Destiny-branded cans will be available exclusively across 7-Eleven stores in July with a full retail roll-out in August. Closer to the launch of The Taken King, special Destiny-branded 4-packs of Red Bull will be available exclusively at Walmart that contain a Mega XP Accelerator, giving Destiny players an even greater advantage leading up to the launch.
