You'll have to buy a can of Red Bull to unlock a quest in Destiny's The Taken King DLC


Destiny, a game developed by Bungie and published by Activision recently announced their next DLC named The Taken King. Players who purchased the first two DLC will have to rebuy them in order to get the Legendary edition of the DLC if they want new emotes. The emotes have not been revealed but most are expecting new dance moves.

Today, Activision has announced a partnership with Red Bull.  Players now will have to buy cans of Red Bull if they want to unlock an "Epic New Quest" in The Taken King.  The Red Bull can will also come with a bonus XP code for a 50% gain in xp for a 30 minute period.  XP codes can be used starting July 1, 2015.  The new quest will be available once The Taken King is released on September 15, 2015.

Players who thought they needed to pay only $40 or $80 for the new DLC to get the complete update will be very disappointed.  The Red Bull Quest is only the first partnership announced by Activision to generate more income from their Destiny franchise.  Can we expect more partnership announcements? Based of Activision's other properties, we think there will soon be a Doritos munch for more fun quest and a Mountain Dew climb the King's Throne quest with bonus super buffs.

The Destiny Edition Red Bull cans are sold exclusively at 7-Eleven in July.

More information on how to redeem the code can be found at Destiny Red Bull Quest.
