On the day of our weapons drop, E.A.T. takes over the game lobby.
We made donating an integral part of gameplay by featuring special-edition defenses against the new killer foods in the game’s shop.
Players can donate their Apex Coins to unlock limited-edition E.A.T. protective skins. like the one below, that defend against one of the eight new food allergens. So while players increase their chances of survival in the game, they’ll help save lives in the real world, too.
As players pick up and use the new weapons in the game, they learn about the real dangers of food allergies.
Leading up to the weapons drop, gamers could test drive the weapons right through social, by hacking Instagram and Facebook stories.
We timed our launch with the E3 Expo, and hosted a “Twitchathon” to celebrate the release of the new weapons. Apex Legends influencers played alongside real gamers with allergies, and viewers could donate to E.A.T. directly through the platform.
