Sam Wilson (aka Falcon) returns in upcoming Disney + series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier on March 19, and Marvel and Xbox are celebrating by teaming up to show actor Anthony Mackie how it’s done. You know, ever since he was kicked out of literally existing for five whole years.
The question of “Where the hell is Bucky?” is answered once again when Winter Soldier and Falcon team up for the new show, but a brilliant new TV series doesn’t equate to “gudging” in games. In a playful new promotion for Disney’s upcoming show, Sam Wilson walks aimlessly through a game store with money in his pockets and five years of life missing. When he walks up to a familiar face in the store to ask what he’s been missing, a perfectly perfect advertisement for Xbox Game Pass kicks in.
Smart marketing is smart.
On March 19, there will be another Falcon experience on Xbox Live and it will include the opportunity to earn 100 Microsoft Rewards points for those who download the Disney + app through Xbox. To benefit from this offer, it will be available from March 19 to March 22! You can find out more here.
Another video was added to the latest Xbox Wire blog Publish, which can be seen below:
With the new series on the horizon with Falcon front and center, Disney + continues to kill it in terms of content. With even more Star Wars experiences on the horizon and the conclusion of WandaVision, it will be interesting to see how this particular streaming service continues to evolve.
