WAR Added to EA’s Marketing Promo Code List!

April 1, 2010

Rejoice!

Many WAR players have noticed some familiar silhouettes on Dr Pepper bottles recently with EA’s promotional team-up with them, however there were no Promo codes that worked for WAR.  In fact, advertising for WAR has been more-or-less nonexistent of late.

That all changes in May apparently…and in a big way!

With the upcoming changes to the end-game City Sieges looming, apparently EA has decided that it’s time to invest in WAR in a major way.

Along with viral campaigns through social media sites like Twitter and Facebook, EA is targeting this summer’s looming blockbuster smash Iron Man 2 as their method of getting the word out about the newly-revitalized WAR.

Along with a new (and highly anticipated) WAR cinematic ad that will play before every Iron Man 2 showing, theaters around the country will be handing out Promo Codes for WAR to people that buy tickets for the movie.  These codes give access to three types of exclusively-colored armor sets that tie in with the movie’s main players it seems.  Check them out!

While not complete redesigns of current armor, the fact that they’re at least doing some advertising has me very excited!  Hopefully this brings with it a resurgence of interest in WAR and a boat-load of new players.

Make sure to head on out to Iron Man 2 in May and pick up your Promo Code.  Exclusive items are always fun to have, even if they’re not useful forever.

Until then, enjoy this new trailer for Iron Man 2, coming soon to a theater near you!

    If this is an April fool, I might have to buy a plane ticket just to come and kick you in the veg! Because it would be a neat idea and promotion is what War needs from EA.

    dumb question maybe, but what armor is that chosen wearing? I think it be an interesting thing to do now that we can toy with our appearance.

    • September 5, 2010 2:02 am

      Totally not a dumb question. Ummm…I believe I blended a couple armor sets to get that look and he may not be wearing shoulders. Redeye might be part of it. I’d have to check my picture archive and unfortunately I can’t do that for a couple weeks as I’m traveling and it’s on my desktop. 😦
