Kicking off SWAPtober, Activision will be giving away one Skylanders SWAP Force Starter Pack per day from October 1-31 via the official Skylanders Twitter channel (@SkylandersGames). Portal Masters can visit Skylanders.com to mix and match their favorite SWAP ForceTM characters out of the more than 250 possible combinations. Fans can then tweet their favorite SWAP Force character combination along with a suggested catchphrase using the hashtags #SWAPtober and #Skylanders for the chance to win one of the daily Skylanders SWAP Force Starter Pack giveaways, which will be available after the game’s launch.
On October 10, 2013, Times Square will transform in to Skylands for an open to the public “SWAPtoberfest” event. SWAPtoberfest attendees can play the game before it hits store shelves, participate in fun Skylanders SWAP Force-themed activities, take photos with favorite Skylanders characters and have a chance to win amazing Skylanders prizes.
