As a veteran of many campaigns, you also know that snacking is important to keep up your energies on the battlefield. Halo 4
developers have thought about the resupply issue and every Spartan that ventures into multipayer will now be issued a backpack containing Mountain Dew and Doritos chips.
Well...not really, but these two brands have decided to join forces with 343 Industries to bring back an opportunity to earn Double XP before the game launches, through the "Mountain Dew Game Fuel". Starting today, you will be able to secure yourself a headstart over the competition by opening an account at www.dewxp.com
, where you will be able to redeem XP through codes printed on Mountain Dew or Doritos products. When you launch the game on your console on November 6th, you will be able to push the XP matches you unlocked from the account online to your Gamertag. In addition, the websites give you a chance to pre-select your arsenal before entering the gaming landscape and customize your armor. Please note that while you can open an account on either website today, the banner that appears on the main page states that the Double XP will be earned starting October 15th.
In short, here is a summary of what you need to do to redeem XP, step by step:
- Register at DEWXP.com or DORITOSXP.com.
- Pick up specially-marked packages of DEW and bags of DORITOS chips.
- Enter the on-pack codes to your account, as of October 15, 2012, at DEWXP.com or DORITOSXP.com to load up on matches of Double XP.
- Pick up Halo 4 on November 6 and begin pushing Double XP matches to your Xbox LIVE Gamer tag via DEWXP.com or DORITOSXP.com.
In addition, Double XP value is unlocked when DEW and DORITOS chips are purchased together.
- Unlock and load Mega XP at Walmart – specially-marked 24-packs of DEW and 10 ½ or 11 ½ oz. bags of DORITOS chips will offer Mega XP – 12 matches of Double XP. Also, for a limited time, Halo 4 games sold at Walmart will include an insert with a unique code. Pair that unique code with the Double XP codes found on a 24-pack of DEW and specially-marked 10 ½ or 11 ½ oz. bags of DORITOS chips and unlock a total of 38 matches of Double XP.
- Beginning in late-October, unlock Double XP matches, Halo 4 game content, and badges at any 7-11 nationwide with an exclusive 'King of the Hill' mobile app and the purchase of DEW and DORITOS chips.

will be released worldwide on November 6th and you can choose between the regular or limited
