Titanfall Binary Code Hidden in Xbox One UK Advertisement?

Microsoft unleashes new viral Titanfall promotion.

Last night in the UK during an Xbox One advertisement, flashes of a binary code appeared. Now we've been seeing advertisements for Titanfall since October 2013 but this one is very different.

When the binary code is translated, it leads you to a website: gl16790101.com.

Once you enter, there are terms and conditions posted that you must accept. NO mention of Titanfall appears though, yet upon signing on, you're led to a page with links to ArchiveHammon.com. Upon selecting the link you'll see some pretty wild schematics.

If you've been paying attention to anything about Titanfall, you'll know that Hammond Robotics is the in-game company responsible for training pilots, creating weapons and the titans themselves.

There's a Pinterest link that leads you to pictures of blossoms which are seen in the Titanfall game's Angel city map.

Rumor is that participants will be able to claim in-game content, prizes, etc. Yet this is reported to be have only been seen in the UK so far. This new viral promotion certainly has had Reddit users talking. This now makes me want to pay more attention to any advertisements that'll appear here in the US.

Titanfall drops March 11th, 2014 in North America and beginning March 13th, 2014 in Europe on PC, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

Until then, keep your eyes open for those advertisements.

    I saw this commercial and I was confused at first but ignored it. I had no idea this is what was really going on. Nice topic to write about. It was creative on their part.
