It all goes down April 1 from 9:00 PM to midnight at GameStop stores in the following cities: Boston, Chicago, Dallas , Denver, New Jersey, New York City (two stores), Orlando, San Francisco, and San Jose. In addition to early hands-on time, those in attendance will be able to deal in-game death with the GameStop pre-order exclusive weapon, SPAS-12 suppressor shotgun, and compete for Ubisoft and Xbox Live prizes.
Los Angeles gamers will have a unique opportunity to play the game in true Hollywood fashion at the Les Deux Nightclub. There will be a hands-on session from 2:00 PM to 6:00 PM PST, followed by a “celebrity red carpet Premiere event” at 8:00 PM. The Premiere event will also include a live scavenger hunt of sorts called “Search for Sam Fisher,” the winner of which will walk away with the Xbox 360 Splinter Cell: Conviction Special Edition bundle and every Ubisoft Xbox 360 game. Not too shabby.
In short, Splinter Cell fans in the participating cities now know exactly where they’ll be on April 1. Am I right?
