Almost every GAME store around the UK will open their doors at midnight for Monday’s launch of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2.
The specialist retailer confirmed that 319 of its outlets are hosting special launch events to mark the arrival of Activision’s next blockbuster shooter. A full list of the stores involved can be found on GAME’s website.
Many stores will be militarised for the occasion, with staff at the Westfield Stratford, Westfield Shepard’s Bush and Birmingham Bullring branches donning full army uniforms and camouflaging the stores.
The Birmingham store will even be protected by the troops from the Birmingham Armoury, while goodie bags will be issued to the first 25 customers at the Westfield branches.
GAME St Austell is taking over the White River Cinema for a special pre-play event at 10pm on Monday. Any gamers who have pre-ordered Black Ops II will be given the chance to compete in multiplayer games across four cinema screens.
Finally, GAME Belfast has invited ice hockey team the Belfast Giants and a special guest DJ to entertain queuers. There will even be a mock battle between CoD soldiers in military vehicles and zombies.
All GAME stores will have a special offer for any customer that buys Black Ops II on the night, giving them 5 worth of reward points when they purchase any Call of Duty merchadise.
