Spare a thought for the hard-working staff of UK retailer GAME who face a very busy eight days.
A huge number of stores will be opening their doors tonight at around 11:45pm to welcome the arrival of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag on current gen machines at midnight.
Special event will be taking place at the Trafford Centre, Bullring, Cardiff St Davids, Tunbridge Wells, Hull Superstore and Cambridge Lion Yard stores.
In addition, nearly every GAME store in the country will be opening its doors early tomorrow morning for those who can’t get to a midnight event.
Then on Thursday night stores will be opening once again for the November 1st arrival of Battlefield 4. This will then be followed next Monday by the midnight openings of several stores for the November 5th release of Call of Duty: Ghosts.
“Stores generally open their doors around 11.45pm – some may open earlier to help you with your trade-ins,” the blurb reads. “Tills will be open from midnight. Stores will generally close around an hour later. Depending on customer demand, your local manager may choose to close earlier or stay open longer.
“For early morning openings, stores usually open at 8:30am – some may open earlier. To be sure that your store is opening, please check with your local branch before going out on the night as they will have the latest information. If you can’t wait to get your game, the best advice is to get there for opening time. That way you can also discuss game tactics with other fans in the queue!”
