No GAME store could hold Sam Fisher – but regular gamers won’t be able to escape playing Splinter Cell Blacklist at these after-hours lock-ins before the release on August 23rd.
12 GAME stores across the UK will be holding lock-ins on July 26th and 27th, giving gamers the chance to experience the game way before the general release.
To keep gamers fully fuelled to formulate attacks, tackle terrorists and apply tactical precision to missions, GAME will be keeping recruits well-equipped with free supplies of food and drink. And of course, knowledgeable GAME staff will be on hand to talk about the upcoming epic and offer goodies throughout the night.
GAME is also offering three special editions of Splinter Cell: Blacklist to fans, two of which are exclusive to the retailer:
- The 5th Freedom Edition complete with steel book case that gives collectors the chance to get their hands on game memorabilia including 24cm Sam Fisher figurine and Splinter Cell Echoes, a 96 page graphic novel and incredible additional in-game content including two maps – Dead Coast and Billionaire’s Yacht. *Exclusive to GAME
- The Upper Echelon Edition is perfect for those who are after extra in-game content and comes complete with Dead Coast map, gold goggles and Upper Echelon suit. *Exclusive to GAME
- Ultimatum Edition swaps the figurine of the 5th Freedom Edition for a digital watch and the graphic novel for a 24 page comic book and includes the two maps, plus the gold goggles, ghost boots and Upper Echelon suit
These editions are not to be missed and can be pre-ordered in store or online at http://www.game.co.uk/splintercell.
Dave Howard, Store Director at GAME said: “I can’t wait for the Splinter Cell: Blacklist Lock-Ins – there’s a huge dedicated following for Splinter Cell and Blacklist is yet another incredible title for the current generation of gaming. Gamers keep telling us how much they love the unique community experience they get at our in-store events and with a huge and varied programme of Lock-Ins planned for the next few months, the Splinter Cell events are a great way to kick off the gaming season.”
With over 5,000 gamers having already attended GAME Lock-Ins this year, this is a not-to-be-missed opportunity. Gamers can register interest at their nearest participating GAME store or send a tweet. To get involved in the action, gamers must be over 18 years old and as spaces are limited, entry will be on a first-come, first-served basis.
