We announced Mountain Dew Game Fuel
quite awhile ago now, but it wasn't until recently that we've seen the official Game Fuel website
. As you can see in the picture above, when you visit the site you're greeted with a countdown. The countdown says you can 'start earning tokens' when the countdown hits 0, which I assume means we'll be able to get our grubby nerd hands on the soda itself in just under 9 days. Unless they have some odd, magical way of gaining tokens beyond buying and drinking Game Fuel.
Players with any interest in PC gaming or WoW
swag at all will be pretty impressed with who they have on board for the prizes they'll supposedly be giving away every 15 minutes. J!NX
handles most of the official WoW
clothing, and Alienware
... well, I've never actually used an Alienware product, but at least their stuff looks cool. That's a good thing, right?
So far there's no evidence of those battle bots we saw
being attached to the Game Fuel at all on that website, but there's that whole convoluted saying that's become so cliche over the years. The absence of evidence isn't evidence of absence. We don't see it yet, but we may yet see it.
