Can Also Sign Up With Other Accounts
Other accounts such as Steam, PSN, XBox, Epic, Twitch, 2K, Google, Facebook, and Twitter can be used to create a SHIFT account.
Step 3. Fill In Details & Password
The next step is to fill in your details such as e-mail address, full name, and password. You also need to input your birthday and your country of residence.
Step 4. Receive Confirmation Email
After clicking "Sign Up", you'll receive a confirmation email in the inbox of the e-mail address you used to register your account. Click "Confirm your account" to verify your e-mail for the SHIFT account.
Step 5. Log-In Using Your SHIFT Account Details
When you've confirmed your e-mail address, you can finally log into your new SHIFT account. Input your log-in details to gain access to your newly created account. Here you can change your account details and preferences.
Step 6. Link To First-Party Accounts To Earn Rewards
After creating a SHIFT account, link your gaming platform accounts to earn special gaming rewards. When you play a Gearbox game, you'll automatically get logged into your SHIFT account and gain points for reward redemption.
Why Create A SHIFT Account?
Earn In-Game Rewards & External Bonuses
The main purpose of having a SHIFT account is so you can earn points to redeem in-game rewards and external bonuses. These make for an immersive experience that reward players for playing Gearbox games or being fans.
Earn Rewards By Redeeming SHIFT Codes
You can earn rewards by inputting and redeeming SHIFT codes. These can normally be found in Gearbox's social media platforms such as Twitter or Facebook.
Earn Points By Playing Gearbox Games
You can also earn points by playing games created and published by Gearbox. Since you've linked your gaming platforms to your SHIFT account, any points you get will automatically reflect onto your account.
