Pre-Order Grand Theft Auto V from Rockstar, Get a Free Kifflom T-Shirt
Feel like wearing a shirt advertising a bizarre fictional religion? Me neither, but someone out there's probably game. Rockstar is offering a free Kifflom shirt to anyone who orders Grand Theft Auto V from their retail arm, Rockstar Warehouse, while supplies last
Here's the actual offer from Rockstar Warehouse:
Pre-order Grand Theft Auto V and receive a KIFFLOM Tee with each qualifying order. The t-shirt will be shipped with the game upon release. Limited number of shirts and limited number of each size available. Offer valid while supplies last and no substitutions for other shirt products allowed. Offer valid on rockstarwarehouse.com only. No other discounts, credits, or offers may be used when redeeming this promotion. Cannot be redeemed for cash. Details of offer are subject to change and offer may be canceled without notice.
What's Kifflom? It's an aspect of Epsilonism, the newfangled religion from the GTA universe, a bizarre amalgamation of Christianity, Mormonism, with a little Scientology thrown in for some flavor. The religion incorporates some of each religion's more, let's call it "fringe" beliefs. Among some of the 12 tenets are that trees talk, aliens exist and are present on Earth, and that everyone is related to everyone else, except for people with red hair. Sorry gingers. The religion even has a twitter page, with some very entertaining tweets.
Featuring three playable characters, a first for the series, Grand Theft Auto V takes place in a re-imagined, present-day Southern California in the largest and most thriving game-world we have ever created set in the sprawling city of Los Santos and for miles beyond - from the tops of the mountains to the depths of the ocean.
Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto V will release worldwide in the spring of 2013 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. A petition is circling to bring the game to PC. Still no word on a release for Nintendo's Wii U.
