GAME to Host Lock-In Events for Diablo III

 Ahead of Blizzard’s dungeon crawler, Diablo III, coming to PS3 and Xbox 360 on September 3rd, they have teamed up with the UK retailer GAME to hold events up and down the country giving gamers an opportunity to try before they buy.

The 18 stores nationwide which will be holding the lock-in events will give gamers a hands-on with Diablo III for PS3 and Xbox 360 and also give attendees the chance to win a trip to Blizzcon 2013 in California. Even if you can’t make the event, you still get a chance to win the trip just by pre-ordering Diablo III from GAME.

If you’d like to register your attendance of the event, drop in to the participating store, or contact them via phone or their Twitter account.

Charlotte Knight, category director at GAME said: “We’re thrilled to be working with Blizzard to give console gamers the chance to experience Diablo III’s intense gameplay which has been hand crafted for console before the game launches.”

Knight added: “Our lock-in series are a huge hit with our communities, and we continue to work harder to bring more content and more events to our customers. With a chance to win a trip to BlizzCon, this is a really exciting opportunity for UK gamers, and we are proud to be adding another superb title to our lock-in series.”
