The official launch of Star Trek Online is less than two weeks away and to help promote the game Atari has teamed up with Del Taco who are offering collector cups, free access and an in-game bonus. We have details on that, plus a bunch of new screenshots and some video too, so check it out. TrekMovie is also giving away more beta keys.
Del Trek – Get STO cups & early free access + special shuttle ‘pet’
Today Atari announced a special promotion with the Mexican fast food chain Del Taco. Customers who purchase a Macho-sized drink at one of Del Taco’s 500 restaurants will receive a free limited edition Star Trek collector’s cup and a free trial of the Star Trek Online (while supplies last). Each collector’s cup will have an individual peel code that can be redeemed for a 48-hour free trial of Star Trek Online at startrekonline.com/deltaco.
STO is at your local Del Taco
Customers can redeem up to four codes and receive 48-hours of gameplay with each code. As an added bonus, customers that redeem the maximum four codes will receive an extra 48-hours of access to the game for a total of 10 full days. Additionally, if consumers choose to purchase the game after their free trial, they will receive a free Type-8 Shuttle "pet" add-on for their Starship, available exclusively from Del Taco. Atari have also provided us with a video of the shuttle, now uploaded to the TrekMovie YouTube channel.
Del Taco have also put up an interactive feature about the Star Trek Online promo on the Del Taco Facebook page.
