The fine folks over at Raptr have recently launched a rewards program by which players can win many different prizes – early beta access, discounts on hardware and free games. With the launch of Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition they’re now offering Raptr users a chance to win a free copy of the game.
From May 10th (tomorrow), those who meet the pre-requisites and are amongst the first 2500 to do so will get themselves a dandy copy of the game. So, what are said pre-requisites?
Well, first off you’re obviously going to need to sign up with Raptr if you haven’t done so already – you can do that on the official website. Then you’ll need to keep an eye out on the Raptr Rewards page when they announce what challenge players will have to complete in order to earn a free copy of the game. Typically this involves being of a certain Raptr Rank on a range of games, which can be made higher via increased playtime and earning achievements.
Everyone who lies within the the countries included in this Xbox LIVE regions list are eligible to win a free copy of Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition. The game normally costs 1600 Microsoft points so that is quite the saving – definitely worth fighting for.
If you didn’t catch it already, Minecraft was released on the Xbox 360 just today and is available to purchase via this page. The port comes with an added tutorial, splitscreen multiplayer and various interface tweaks designed for a gamepad.
