GAME have teamed up with SONY to organise a massive number of lock-ins to market the release of their upcoming release The Last of Us. Lock-ins give you the chance to get hands on with big releases weeks before they are released to public.
The Last of Us is a genre-defining experience that blends survival and action elements to tell a character driven story about a population decimated by a modern plague. Abandoned cities are being reclaimed by nature and the remaining survivors are killing each other for food, weapons and whatever they can get their hands on. Joel, a ruthless survivor, and Ellie, a brave teenage girl who is wise beyond her years, must work together to survive their journey across what remains of the United States. This exciting new title comes from the developers Naughty Dogs who produced the Crash Bandicoot series as well as the more recent Uncharted titles.
75 GAME store stores have committed to running lock-ins across the country but for the sake of my editorial sanity I have only included those in London. You can find the details of these below.
