I bet you thought that the only thing happening on May 17th was the release of L.A. Noire, right? Wrong!
On May 17th Farmville is going Gaga... Like, literally! No, not really -- and we are sure that this is a major disappointment for her fans who play Farmville -- but the game is not going to transition into GagaVille.
Starting May 17th when you play the game you have a chance to unlock songs from the artists upcoming new album "Born this Way" -- But what you are probably wondering right now is how the heck are they going to do that?!
When you log into the game on May 17th you will find that there is a new farm available in the list of neighbor farms that you can visit -- and it belongs to Lady Gaga! Her fans are not likely to be disappointed by the farm inspired by the artist -- as it will include themes and content based on the album, from crystals, unicorns and sheep to motorcycles. Seriously!
Gamers who purchase a $25 Zynga Game Card during the Gaga Fest will also receive a free download of Lady Gaga's new "Born This Way" album as well as exclusive bonus tracks when the album is released on May 23rd -- and they will also get a free Farmville unicorn, which makes it totally worth it, right?
In addition to the above purchase related opportunity there are also other incentives to play during Gaga time, like exclusive access to "Born This Way" songs before the album officially releases. On May 17th through the 19th players can unlock and stream a new unreleased track per day and, from the 20th to 23rd they can unlock and stream special bonus remixes, so like, bonus! Actually there is more...
Seven people each day who shell out the money for the Game Card will win a day on the set with Gaga -- meaning they will get to hang out with her during the music video shoot for one of the songs from her new album -- and if you play the special Gaga word of the day game on Words With Friends you will be entered to win tickets to a concert on her next tour and asigned copy of "Born this Way."
What can we say, when they go all out they go ALL out!
