The Electronic Entertainment Expo or E3 is the world’s premier trade show for computer and video games. Huge gaming companies like Microsoft, Sony, Activision and Nintendo introduce their latest interactive entertainment creations. Every year one of the most anticipated games is EA SPORTS Madden NFL and when football season returns this fall, fans can be the envy at any stadium with the ability to play games online between two stationary vehicles while tailgating!
Continuing a partnership created last year, GMC, the Official Vehicle of the NFL, will be prominently featured in EA SPORTS Madden NFL 15 with vehicles appearing during gameplay. When the 2015 GMC Canyon midsize pickup launches later this year, owners – especially online gamers – will be able to stay connected like never before. The Canyon, as well as other 2015 GMC will come with available OnStar with 4G LTE that features a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot capable of connecting up to seven devices – including a video game console or tablet.
More from GM:
When the 2015 GMC Canyon midsize pickup and some other 2015 model year GMC vehicles launch later this year, owners will be able to stay connected like never before with OnStar 4G LTE connectivity.
Innovative features on the Canyon, like OnStar 4G LTE, provide the ability to play games like EA SPORTS Madden NFL 15 online between two stationary vehicles or with others at home, whether tailgating at a stadium this fall or watching the game at the beach.
The 2015 GMC Canyon will come with available OnStar with 4G LTE that features a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot capable of connecting up to seven devices – including a video game console or tablet – in or around the vehicle. It’s as easy as connecting to a home Wi-Fi; when the vehicle is on, the hotspot is on. After a three month or three gigabyte (whichever comes first) trial period, pricing for Onstar’s 4G LTE data service starts at just $5 per month for customers who also subscribe to a Safe & Sound or Directions & Connections plan, or $10 for others.
The GMC Canyon and OnStar 4G LTE data plan sales will both be available this fall.
Continuing a partnership created last year, GMC, the Official Vehicle of the NFL, will be prominently featured in EA SPORTS Madden NFL 15 with vehicles and branding appearing during gameplay. For example, after the big game victory, the game’s MVP will be awarded a 2015 GMC vehicle. And new in Madden 15 will be GMC Professional Grade Challenge Reviews and GMC Broadcast Elements.
Some of GMC’s in-game integration is only available on a gaming console with an internet connection. During the NFL season, GMC selects a weekly “Never Say Never Moment of the Week.” Each moment will be made available to replay in-game at regular intervals throughout the season. Replays require an Origin Account and account creators must be at least 13 years old.
“GMC customers appreciate excellence. When they do something, they do it well,” said Rich Latek, GMC marketing director. “With a 4G LTE data connection and the ability to connect up to seven devices, including gaming systems, smartphones, and tablets, GMC owners will draw the envy of nearby tailgaters in stadium parking lots across America.”
The Canyon’s Wi-Fi hotspot isn’t the only way an OnStar connection can benefit owners. Using the RemoteLink smartphone app, users can start and stop or lock and unlock a vehicle remotely from a smartphone, ideal for keeping a set of tickets locked away for late arrivers. Two quick phone commands, protected by a secure PIN, could unlock and re-lock the vehicle. These RemoteLink Key Fob Services are included for five years at no additional charge with the purchase of a 2015 GMC vehicle. Additional RemoteLink features beyond remote locking, remote start, and horn honk/light flash functions require a subscription.
