MINNEAPOLIS, Sept. 27, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Totino's proudly teams up with the celebrated Call of Duty franchise, in advance of the highly anticipated Call of Duty: Modern Warfare launch. As part of the collaboration, consumers can unlock Call of Duty items inside Modern Warfare with the purchase of participating products, including Totino's Pizza Rolls, Mini Snack Bites and Multi-Pack Party Pizza, by entering unique codes found on the packaging.
To celebrate this collaboration, Totino's worked with Matthew "Nadeshot" Haag, Founder & CEO of 100 Thieves, to co-design the in-game content. Matt gained success through playing Call of Duty over the years and is one of the most decorated esports athletes in video game history. Consumers can now redeem a calling card with the purchase of one participating Totino's product, a watch with the purchase of two products, and a charm with the purchase of three. In addition, consumers who purchase product exclusively at Walmart will receive a 2XP boost in the game. All codes can be redeemed at www.callofduty.com/totinos.
"As a long-standing partner in the esports community, it was a no-brainer to team up with Activision ahead of the highly anticipated Call of Duty: Modern Warfare release," shares Justin Conzemius, director of marketing for Totino's. "We had a blast working with Nadeshot to design unique in-game content that reflects his personal style, and allows us as a brand to really level up the gaming experience for players and fans."
Nadeshot adds, "I'm so excited to finally reveal that I've partnered with Totino's to co-design exclusive in-game content for the new Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. Call of Duty has a special place in my heart, so I was thrilled for this opportunity. Totino's has been an incredible partner to 100 Thieves over the past year and I am excited to share this in-game content with my fans."
Additionally, Totino's kicks off this exciting announcement at TwitchCon, which takes place September 27 - 29 in San Diego, CA.
