Splinter Cell: Blacklist sneaks into GAME for lock-in events

Ubisoft’s stealth blockbuster will be in GAME stores after trading hours next weekend – but gamers won’t need their night-vision goggles to get their hands on it.

Instead, GAME will be welcoming customers with open doors as 10 stores around the UK host the latest in the retailer’s series of lock-in demo events, this time centered around Splinter Cell: Blacklist.

Sam Fisher’s latest outing will be available to play in selected stores on Friday, July 26th and Saturday, July 27th. The game will be released for Xbox 360, PS3, Wii U and PC on August 23rd.

Consumers can register for a space at the event either in these stores, or by tweeting the relevant store’s Twitter account. Places are first come, first served.

More than 5,000 customers have already attended GAME’s lock-in events, and the retailer will be hosting more later in the year.

Here’s a full list of the participating stores:

Friday, July 26th

  • Lord Street, Liverpool
  • Victoria Centre, Nottingham
  • Cribbs Causeway, Bristol
  • Back of the Inns, Norwich
  • North End, Croydon

Saturday, July 27th

  • Arndale Centre, Manchester
  • Mill Lane, Solihull
  • St Davids 2 Centre, Cardiff
  • Oracle Shopping Centre, Reading
  • West Quay Centre, Southampton

UPDATE:Unfortunately, the Edinburgh and Leeds lock-ins that were originally reported have been canned, GAME told MCV.
