UK retailer GAME is getting a little bit of an exclusive that they will be able to share with their patrons in the form of Lock-ins hosted by Ubisoft. So fans of Ubisoft games will be able to check out the events taking place after the stores close, where live demos, unfortunately hands off unlike Gamescom, will be shown to those present for upcoming releases Watch_Dogs and Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.
In addition to getting to see Watch_Dogs and Assassin’s Creed IV played live in front of them, those who pre-order either game during the event will receive an Assassin’s Creed IV hoodie when they pick up their game after launch. Though it should be noted that no one will be allowed to film, photograph, or interview during the event. So, those looking to see the demos or pre-order to get the hoodie can check out the Lock-ins at these GAME locations on Friday August 2nd:
- Liverpool Lord Street (72 Lord Street, Liverpool, L2 1TL) at 19:00
