Transporting fans to another dimension once more, record-breaking BRIT and GRAMMY Award-nominated, Billboard Music Award-winning global sensations Glass Animals have joined forces with Xbox to give away a custom PAC-MAN WORLD™ Re-PAC Xbox Series S with some fun additions inspired by the band including a replica overall worn by Dave in celebration of Xbox’s Summer of Spotlight celebration that includes the release of PAC-MAN WORLD Re-PAC. The contest just launched today at https://twitter.com/Xbox/status/1564598834612748291. Released on August 26th by Bandai Namco Entertainment America Inc., PAC-MAN WORLD Re-PAC is now available at www.bandainamcoent.com/games/pac-man-world-re-pac
 
In what might be their most unique collab yet, the band has teamed up with one of the video game world’s most iconic figures. However, it only represents the culmination of a dream for the group. As longtime fans of the Xbox and the PAC-MAN™ series, Glass Animals even utilized imagery from the game in a series of creative campaigns, including during live performances of “Tangerine” over the years.
 
On August 8th and 9th, Glass Animals’ fans were among the very first to experience PAC-MAN WORLD Re-PAC on Xbox at the sold-out Dreamland.irl shows in Brooklyn, NY at Brooklyn Mirage. The band teamed up with Xbox to construct a stunning retro-style lounge to play the game during the event.
 
With enhanced graphics and features, PAC-MAN WORLD Re-PAC is bringing back a wonderfully original world of adventure for PAC-MAN. The game has multiple modes with Quest Mode, a Maze Mode that brings classic PAC-MAN game play to 3D mazes, and a complete version of the original game in Original Mode that players can unlock by completing the main game. In the main Quest Mode experience, players dodge Ghosts and other baddies, solve environmental puzzles, and collect items through six exciting worlds, each featuring multiple levels and a unique boss battle challenge.
 
Earlier this month on the two year anniversary of critically acclaimed third album Dreamland, Glass Animals releases their special Dreamland: Real Life Edition for fans who have been on this incredible journey with the British band who have taken world by storm—listen here. Dreamland is the album that brought us the global smash hit “Heat Waves,” which continues to break records by becoming the third-longest charting song on the Billboard Hot 100 of all time, spending 80 weeks in the charts, just after The Weekend’s Blinding Lights (90 weeks) and Imagine Dragons’ “Radioactive” (87 weeks). The band now has over 5 billion global streams and 38 million monthly listeners, but it’s live where Glass Animals come alive, gaining critical acclaim globally for their high-octane colossal performances, having stormed their biggest ever stages at Glastonbury, Splendour in the Grass Festival, and Lollapalooza. The band has since sold over 262,000 tickets in the US last year alone, including their most iconic venue yet with two sold-out nights at Colorado’s Red Rocks in June, where artists including Led Zeppelin and The Beatles have performed.
 
Now honoring the Dreamland they have lived in ever since its release during the pandemic summer of 2020, Glass AnimalsDreamland: Real Life Edition, is available in all formats with a limited-edition glow in the dark vinyl featuring a new colorway artwork alongside a deluxe tracklist CD and cassette, and includes collaborations with Arlo Parks, Denzel Curry, Albert Hammond Jr., Bree Runway, and Diplo.
