Doritos + Mtn Dew Xbox Drop Zone Kick-Off with Joel McHale

By 12:49 PM ,

The Xbox One X has released! If you are a gamer excited to get your hands on one, then make sure to enter The Drop Zones, a series of augmented reality (AR) events hosted by Mtn Dew®, Doritos® and Xbox happening in Los Angeles, New York and Chicago where players compete for the chance to win the Xbox One X.

Note: I was invited as media to this event. Any personal views expressed are always 100% my own.

To get a feel for the game, plus try and win myself a Xbox One X, I attended a kick off event hosted in New York's Central Park.

Joel McHale, comedian and avid gamer, was there to host this first Drop Zone. He went around encouraging team and speaking to winners.

Which sadly didn't include me.

After downloading the app, signing in to the session, I joined a short and furious played game. We all ran around trying to "capture" and then "hold" our virtual Xbox One X till the timer ran out.

While I was able to "capture" a Xbox One X (twice!) I had some issues with the app freezing. Urgh! I feel so cheated. LOL

Hopefully you'll have a better chance then I did. So make sure to gear up and get ready to play!

New York – Randall’s Island - 11/10 and 11/11; 12-4 PM

Los Angeles – Whittier Narrows - 11/11 and 11/12; 3-7 PM

Chicago – Lincoln Park - 11/11 and 11/12; 1-5 PM

The Drop Zone is in conjunction with Mtn Dew and Doritos' "Every 60 Seconds" online auction where fans can bank points through on-pack codes for a shot at winning the new console.
