  • Microsoft thanked a Navy veteran for his service by
    having a “Battlefield V” Xbox One X bundle delivered to his
    house by a skydiver.
  • That skydiver was Travis Pastrana, a former NASCAR
    driver and professional stunt performer from the action-sports
    collective Nitro Circus.
  • The giveaway coincides with Microsoft’s #GivewithXbox
    campaign, which donates Xbox products to video game-related

To celebrate the release of “Battlefield V,” Microsoft and
Electronic Arts partnered to give a Florida veteran a
limited-edition Xbox One X bundle, delivered via an outrageous
skydiving stunt.

Motorsport driver and stunt performer Travis Pastrana of Nitro
Circus dove from a height of 13,000 feet to deliver the
first Xbox One X Gold Rush Special Edition “Battlefield V”
bundle to retired Navy Corpsman Jeff Bartrom, who lives in
Paisley Florida. Pastrana hit a peak speed of 140 mph during the
dive, and the jump took less than 55 seconds.

The giveaway was meant to thank Bartrom for his service and
coincides with Microsoft’s #GiveWithXbox initiative. The company
pledged to donate $5 worth of Xbox products for every picture
shared to social media with the hashtag showing the importance of
gaming. Microsoft will donate up to $1 million to be split
between four charities, Child’s Play, Gamers Outreach,
SpecialEffect, and Operation Supply Drop. The social media
campaign is running through December 9th.
