Xbox oreo Halo

This isn't something we expected to read today but nevertheless, it's real! As part of a new promotion with famous cookie brand Oreo, Xbox is bringing some brand-new skins to some of its biggest first-party titles including Halo Infinite, Forza Horizon 5 and Sea Of Thieves.

The in-game rewards are tied to new Xbox-themed Oreo packs that actually contain unique cookie designs! Xbox says you can "taste sweet victory" by picking up a pack later this month.

As an extra puzzle-solving step, the team is even adding a challenge to actually redeeming these rewards. Xbox says you'll have to play around to find the right code sequence baked into these Oreos.

"Entering the baked-in symbols in the correct sequence can unlock exciting, exclusive Oreo-themed in-game content, such as armor packs and vehicle skins for popular titles like Forza Horizon 5, Sea of Thieves, and Halo Infinite."

Additionally, a bunch of prize draws will also be tied to these new Oreo packs, featuring rewards such as Xbox Series S consoles, Game Pass subscriptions, and even "custom Oreo hardware".

For now, Xbox hasn't fully detailed every single participating country, but expect the Oreo packs to hit store shelves across Europe later this month. Sadly, it looks like the US is set to miss out.
