Samsung Kicks Off QLED, Xbox Series X Contest
Samsung is teaming up with Microsoft and game developer CD Projekt Red, developer of Cyberpunk 2077, on a contest giveaway promotion surrounding the Nov. 10th release of the Xbox Series X console and the forthcoming next-gen game.
As part of the partnership, Xbox, Samsung and CD Projekt Red are giving five finalists a chance to compete to win a specially created Samsung QLED Limited Edition Cyberpunk 2077 TV, an Xbox Series X and an advance copy of Cyberpunk 2077.
For the giveaway, Samsung said gamers are currently engaging in an Alternate Reality Game, called Samsung QLEDecode, that will give contestants a taste of the world of Cyberpunk.
The digital scavenger hunt began on Reddit on October 26th and involves a series of mysterious posts and clues, requiring contestants to use their wits and the help of the community to unravel the puzzle, leading to a final task where five players will have a chance to test their decoding skills and unlock the grand prize.
Samsung said the QLEDcode finale event will be streamed on Twitch on November 17th at 10 p.m. Eastern, when the winner will unlock the grand prize.
Xbox Series X ($499), is billed as Microsoft’s most powerful console to date, and features an Ultra HD Blu-ray drive for both games and physical UHD Blu-ray movie playback. Microsoft is also offering a digital-only version without the disc drive called Xbox Series S ($299). Samsung has developed a range of 2020 4K and 8K QLED TVs optimized for next-generation game play.
Details on how to enter the contest are available here.
