NEWARK, N.J. — Mars Wrigley’s 5™ GUM is partnering with Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics to deliver new digital content to players of the Marvel’s Avengers game.
As of Monday, August 17, with the purchase of every 5 GUM promotional pack, Marvel’s Avengers players can go to http://www.PlayAvengers.com/5Gum to unlock a series of in-game content pieces with a code found inside each promotional pack. By logging into their Square Enix Members account (registration required), fans begin to unveil their redemption journey. Participating players will receive 5 Gum Marvel’s Avengers name plates with their first code redemption while subsequent codes will unlock items that enhance their Heroes within the game when it is released on September 4. Fans can also redeem codes to download exclusive PlayStation themes, avatars and, in the United States, Marvel Insider points. In-game content offer available while supplies last.
“We’re so excited to partner with Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics to serve up some exciting new digital content to fans,” says Scott Koplowitz, Sr. Brand Manager of Gum & Mints at Mars Wrigley. “This partnership will help deliver two things that every fellow gamer desires – the focus needed by chewing gum while you play, and new content to take your Marvel’s Avengers gaming experience to the next level.”
“From the beginning of this campaign we strived to align ourselves with partners who were willing to step outside ‘the usual’ and bring their customers a strategic offering that goes beyond what’s expected,” said Karl Stewart, Head of Worldwide Strategic Partnerships at Square Enix. “From day one, 5 Gum and Crystal Dynamics were aligned to do something transformative as a partnership that’s focused on rewarding gamers. The core of Marvel’s Avengers is the idea that the team, and our players, are stronger together. That’s what motivates our heroes in-game and our partnerships outside of it. As a result, our global program with 5 Gum offers players far more than anyone expects.”
