Raptr has launched Raptr Rewards, a program to reward active gamers with real rewards for playing their favorite games. Raptr Rewards is on track to offer over 350,000 free rewards in the first month of launch.
“We see Raptr Rewards as a natural evolution of what Raptr can do for gamers,” Dennis Fong, Raptr’s CEO, explained. “Raptr’s reputation system already ranks players based on their skills and activity in their games. We’re now taking the next step in rewarding players for the time and effort they’ve invested in these games."
Gamers can earn free videogames, downloadable content, beta codes, major discounts and more, just for playing their favorite games on console and PC and ranking up on Raptr. Ranks are determined by time played and achievements unlocked. Rewards are offered on a rolling, first-come, first-served basis.
Raptr Rewards is now live in beta and is on track to offer a number of rewards by the end of May, including exclusive in-game items for Blacklight: Retribution; early access codes for Diablo III; beta access for Ghost Recon: Future Soldier; in-game items for Mass Effect 3; free copies of Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition; free copies of RIFT; as well as discounts on gaming hardware.
All those interested should note that, sadly, this program is only available for US-based gamers at the moment. New Game Network has a community page on the site.
