PepsiCo Wednesday rolled out a new line of Mountain Dew Amp sodas aimed at esports and gamers.

The drink, which will be available starting Jan. 14, will come in four flavors: Charged Cherry Burst, Charged Berry Blast, Charged Tropical Strike and Charged Original DEW. If you’re really dying to get your hands on the special cans of Dew, you can also pre-order them at Amazon.com and Walmart.com.

We worked with gamers to truly understand what they are looking for in a beverage when gaming, then applied what we learned to develop the product. We can’t wait to share Mtn Dew Amp Game Fuel with the gaming world come January.”

The new line of drinks will also be sponsoring the Call of Duty World League, with players at the Dec. 7 to Dec. 9 Las Vegas competition getting a first taste of the drink ahead of its 2019 launch.
