Mountain Dew has just announced a new Dew and Doritos promotion for the Black Ops 3 Zombies mode. The promotion will give fans access to Double XP in the Black Ops 3 Shadows of Evil Zombies mode.
Mountain Dew and Doritos has stated that the promotion will start on October 5th in the US, and fans can visit DewandDoritos.com to learn more after the October launch day. Codes in select marked packages of Mountain Dew and Doritos products will give fans access to 30 minutes of exclusive Zombies Double XP a day in Shadows of Evil map. This promotion is exclusive to the US.
