HMV Oxford Street to host official COD: Black Ops II UK launch event

Call of Duty: Black Ops II’s official UK launch event will take place at HMV’s Oxford Street store next Monday (November 12th).

A 1,000 strong audience is expected, all of whom will receive goody bags. Treyarch developers will be on hand to sign copies of the game and a ‘Zombie Bus Stop’ will offer fans the chance to get hands-on with a number of props featured in the game.

A multiplayer tournament will also be available.

The store will open its doors at 10pm.

I am a huge fan of Call of Duty, so on a personal level I am really excited and can’t wait for it to come out,” HMV’s category manager for games Andy Pinder stated.

I hear the new perks are great and I’m particularly looking forward to seeing what they’ll be like. This is undoubtedly the games release of the year, which is great news not just for fans but retailers alike as we head into Christmas.”

There’s no let up for games retail at the moment. Tomorrow sees the long-awaited release of Halo 4, and Call of Duty: Black Ops II will be unleashed to the world next Tuesday (November 13th).
