Gamers in the UK who simply cannot wait to get their hands on Sony and Naughty Dog’s upcoming title, The Last of Us, will have a rather unique opportunity in the coming weeks to play the game before it is released. According to a press release issued by Sony earlier today, Sony and gaming retailer GAME will be running a series of “lock in” events across the UK where stores will open up past closing time and allow for gamers to get their hands on The Last of Us before its launch while being fed and properly refreshed by Sony.
The Last of Us goes on sale in the UK on June 14th, but gamers will get a chance to play it a bit early at 75 GAME locations on specified dates between May 3rd and June 9th. This will serve as a chance for gamers to pre-order the title as well, as all that pre-order or have pre-ordered already will get a two-sided The Last of Us poster for attending an event. You must be 18 or older to attend and space is limited, so you’ll need to go to your local store and register for whatever dates they are running the promotion.
