Oh, to relive the days whenst gameries were packaged in CD-ROM format and placed gingerly inside cereal boxes. Apologies for the old timey lingo there, but that's how we talked back in the early '90s. And the rad days when game CDs were stuck onto magazines and placed inside cereal boxes. Weirdly, only those two things. Well, to celebrate the launch of Age of Empires 4
(our review here
) the team at Xbox Australia
have created something... grouse.
An Age of Empires cereal called WOLOL’Os.
With the name of the cereal deriving from the battle cry of the priest in the early edition of the game, believe or not, but WOLOL’Os is a real and completely edible cereal! Packed full of goodness to help build strong and healthy strategic minds, this cereal is not only a great way to start your day but also a sure way to convert your enemies!
And with that Xbox ANZ is giving fans the chance to win a box which will come packed with the Age of Empires II original soundtrack on CD. Plus, a 12-month subscription to Xbox Game Pass for PC to jump into Age of Empires 4.
"Receiving a CD in a cereal box all those years ago would have been the first gaming moment for many and kick-started a lifelong passion," said Tania Chee, Xbox Business Lead for ANZ. "With the much-anticipated release of Age of Empires IV, we’re thrilled to be able to have a bit of fun with this throwback. Age of Empires IV is a brilliant game, and we can’t wait for fans to start playing and developing their civilizations.”
