The long wait is nearly over, and now fans of the Battlefield franchise are being given the chance to be among the first to get their hands on its latest instalment, Battlefield: Hardline, before its official launch on Friday 20th March.
To ensure gamers can enter the fray as soon as possible, GAME will be opening over 200 of its stores across the UK at midnight on Thursday 19th March – giving fans the chance to experience the launch buzz and make the most of some exciting GAME exclusives.
Battlefield: Hardline sees a shift from the traditional backdrop of warfare, as gamers are immersed in a world of street crime and heists. Play as either the cop or criminal as you navigate through this action-packed blockbuster in gripping single and multiplayer modes.
And if the chance to get the game before anyone else wasn’t enough to tempt fans to get along to their local store, the Battlefield: Hardline Deluxe Edition, only at GAME, includes a Versatility Battlepack, Precision Battlepack and Suppression Battlepack – all featuring unique assault rifles, weapons, camos and XP boosts. There are also 10 gold backpacks delivered in-game once a week, featuring a host of invaluable extras.
For those visiting GAME Stratford, GAME Liverpool Lord Street, GAME Birmingham Bull Ring, GAME Newcastle Eldon Square or GAME Edinburgh St James’ Centre, there is the added bonus of having your prison mug shot photo taken. Gamers can stand in front of an official GAME prison wall and share their photo on social channels using #GAMEmugshot.
Dave Howard, Operations Director at GAME Retail Ltd, says: “We’re really excited to open so many store at midnight for this highly anticipated title. There will be lots of added theatre at our stores across the UK and more importantly, the Exclusive Deluxe Edition looks to be a much-needed lifeline for gamers to help them navigate through the game.”
