Fifa 14 lock-ins and midnight openings promised from UK retailer GAME.
UK video games retailer GAME have revealed possibly its largest EA lock-in plans to date. 50 stores are said to be offering “Extra time” to give people an early demo of Fifa 14 and some hands on time. The events take place weeks before the official release of Fifa 14 which is Friday 27th September.
The lock-ins take place between September 8th - 22nd September.
The lock-ins gives gamers the chance to get to grips with the latest innovations to the award-winning game play and experience the thrills of scoring great goals. The new pure shot feature and a brand-new ball physics system will transform shooting so every shot feels real and exhilarating, making FIFA 14 more authentic and fun than ever before.
What’s more, GAME will also be opening up 300 of its stores at midnight on 27th September to allow gamers to take home the most anticipated football franchise of the year as soon as possible.
Gamers who pre-order FIFA 14 on Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 will also receive three Exclusive bonus packs – the Adidas, Historic Kit and Pro Boosters Bundles, plus Four FIFA Ultimate Team Packs.
Adidas Bundle includes
Adidas All-Star Team, featuring Leo Messi and Gareth Bale, plus two pairs of boots and two balls
Historic Kit Bundle includes
A wide selection of historic club kits to unlock, from some of the top clubs across the globe
Pro Boosters Bundle includes
Five pro boosts to turn your online pro into a star – upgrade passing, shooting, ball skills and more!
Gamers can register for the lock-ins at their nearest participating store, either in person or by phone, or by sending their local store a tweet. Spaces are limited and customers will be chosen on a first-come, first-served basis. Gamers must be 16 or over to register and ID will be required for entry. The EA SPORTS team will also provide half-time refreshments and goody bags to all participants.
Charlotte Knight, Category Director at GAME said:
