Skylanders SWAP Force month-long activities
SWAPtober events giving away copies of the game
Activision has announced promotional events for the month of "SWAPtober" as the launch of the next Skylanders title approaches.
Kicking off SWAPtober, Activision will be giving away one Skylanders SWAP Force Starter Pack per day from October 1-31 via the official Skylanders Twitter channel (@SkylandersGames). Fans can then tweet their favorite SWAP Force character combination along with a suggested catchphrase using the hashtags #SWAPtober and #Skylanders for the chance to win one of the daily Skylanders SWAP Force Starter Pack giveaways, which will be available after the game's launch.
On October 10, Skylanders is partnering with Toys"R"Us to bring Skylands to life with "SWAPtoberfest" - a celebration in Times Square where fans will have the chance to be among the very first to play the game before it's available at retail. SWAPtoberfest will feature Skylanders SWAP Force-themed activities, photos with Skylanders costumed characters as well as chances to win prizes.
On Saturday, October 12 and Sunday, October 13, the Toys"R"Us international flagship store in New York City will celebrate the launch of the game with one-of-a-kind in-store experiences, including game demos and more giveaways.
Skylanders SWAP Force will be available in North America on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Nintendo Wii U on October 13; and in Europe on October 18. It also will be available with the launch of Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
