To celebrate the release of “Battlefield V,” Microsoft and Electronic Arts partnered to give a Florida veteran a limited-edition Xbox One X bundle, delivered via an outrageous skydiving stunt.
World War II shooter “Battlefield V” officially launched on November 20th and is available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. The Xbox One X version of “Battlefield V” also features enhanced visuals. EA Access members can play a free 10-hour trial of the game on their platform of choice as well.
Motorsport driver and stunt performer Travis Pastrana of Nitro Circus dove from a height of 13,000 feet to deliver the first Xbox One X Gold Rush Special Edition “Battlefield V” bundle to retired Navy Corpsman Jeff Bartrom, who lives in Paisley Florida. Pastrana hit a peak speed of 140 mph during the dive, and the jump took less than 55 seconds.
The giveaway was meant to thank Bartrom for his service and coincides with Microsoft’s #GiveWithXbox initiative.
The company pledged to donate $5 worth of Xbox products for every picture shared to social media with the hashtag showing the importance of gaming. Microsoft will donate up to $1 million to be split between four charities, Child’s Play, Gamers Outreach, Special Effect, and Operation Supply Drop. The social media campaign is running through December 9th.
