New GAME lock-in announced – Injustice: Gods Among Us official UK tournament
In a twist to the GAME lock-in formula, stores will be hosting the official UK tournament heats of Injustice: Gods Among Us. Are you the greatest hero of them all? Well now you can prove it!
Each store in the tournament will play host to a heat, the winner will win:
- Gaming headset
- Limited Edition Injustice Fight Stick
- DC Comics character bobble head
- Weekend ticket for Multiplay’s Insomnia 49 event to be held on 23 – 26 August 2013 at The International Centre, Telford
The winner of each heat will then advance to the UK Final, held at Warner Bros HQ in London on 19th April 2013 and do battle with the other heat winners. Win this and you bag yourself the grand prize of:
- Injustice UK Tournament Winners Belt
- 40″ Smart TV
- PlayStation Vita (Wi-Fi version)
- Copy of Injustice: Gods Among Us Collector’s Edition (Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3
That’s a lot of awesome prizes for the grand winner which includes them taking on the best the world has to offer in Paris during the week commencing April 22nd and be in with a chance of winning the Grand Prize of the International Winner’s belt and a one-off Injustice Arcade Machine!
If, like me, you don’t really have what it takes to be a button mashing beat ‘em up God then you are more than welcome to attend one of the lock-in events purely as a spectator or take to one of the consoles for some relaxed fights without the pressure of being in the tournament. There will be pizza and refreshments on hand for everyone as well as a goodie bag containing an exclusive t-shirt and playing cards. GAME will also be giving out ‘on-the-spot’ prizes and also offering a runner’s up prize of a copy of Injustice: Gods Among Us Red Son Special Edition (Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3).
Feel like stepping up to the challenge? Well all you need to do is pop into your nearest participating store, send them a tweet, or email firstname.lastname@example.org to register your place. But with only 32 entrants in each heat, spaces are limited, so be quick! Oh, and all entrants and attendees need to be aged 18 or over, so ID may be required.
