GAME to host Gears of War: Judgment lock-ins - play Epic's latest over a month early

14 stores take part in scheme across February

GAME has announced another wave of store lock-in events, this time starring Epic and People Can Fly's Gears of War: Judgment. Did you attend any of the Dead Space 3 events from last month? Are you willing to sacrifice your recreational hours once again?

The game's out on 22nd March, and the first lock-in kicks off on 2rd February, so that's a whole month and a half you'll have over those feckless fools who settle for playing Judgment on release day. To register, send the store in question a tweet or sign up in person. You'll need to be 18 years of age or older - plunging underslung chainsaws into rampaging mutants is Grown-Up Fun.


"As any fan of the series will agree, fighting off the Locust can takes its toll and so GAME will keep the COGs well-oiled with free food and drinks," notes a release. "On top of this, we'll have staff on hand to talk about the upcoming epic and offer goodies throughout the night."

The Gears of War: Judgment lock-ins will take place at 14 stores in total throughout February. Dates, times and locations are below:

- 3rd February 2013: Glasgow The Fort - 6.30pm
