(In case you don't feel like reading all of the stuff below)
We kicked things off with our influencers...
We selected 5 NYC based gaming influencers to tease our "Instant Drop" of Halo Wars 2 the night before on Twitter: ACETV, aPG, Heinz, Tsquared and JeromeASF.
Word started spreading and #FiosInstant started trending on Twitter in NYC. People started sharing screenshots and videos of the countdown.
When the countdown hit zero, people only had an instant to download the game before it disappeared. While they waited to see if they were quick enough, they were shown a video of just how fast our new speed actually was.
People started posting images of their success to Twitter immediately.
and a lucky few...
The first 4 people of each of the 5 Instant Drops got to play Halo Wars 2 against our gaming influencers, with the matches streamed live on Twitch.
• XBOX's first fully integrated in-console campaign
• 6,000 NYC participants in just 7 minutes
