Microsoft‘s Xbox One X is still not slated to come out until next month and anticipation is growing especially for those who’ve gotten their pre-orders in. With that said, there are other ways fans can get their hands on the highly-anticipated system upon release. Namely, Mountain Dew and Doritos are unveiling “The Drop Zone” — the popular soft drink and chips duo are calling it an “ultimate gaming experience” for the public to win the Xbox One X.

The contest is done through augmented reality capture-the-flag events in U.S. cities nationwide. Here, competing players get chances to win the coveted console in conjunction with the DEW and Doritos “Every 60 Seconds” online auction. All participants need to do is collect points found on specific Mountain Dew and Doritos products and use them for a chance at winning the Xbox One X.

New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago will have the Drop Zone events available on November 10 weekend. According to official instructions:

Players will need to download the “Drop Zone” app to register for a spot to participate in a real-time, location-based AR game to win the new Xbox One X console. Deploying offensive and defensive power-ups, players will be tasked with finding, claiming and keeping control of a virtual console within the app. Fans can visit Every60Seconds.com to learn more.

Additionally, from October 5-8, those registered to attend New York Comic-con will have the “exclusive opportunity to pre-register for the Drop Zone experience.” Those who can’t be at NYCC can register in early November to access official rules. All they’ll need to do is download the Drop Zone app through Apple and Google Play Stores.

Here’s how it works:
