Battlefield 3 Midnight Launches? There Are A Lot Of Them…

70


It seems as though we’re moving into Midnight Launch season, and first up is Battlefield 3. Both GAME and EB have announced which stores are staying up late for the release of Battlefield 3. Steel yourself folks – there are a lot of them.

EB

EB is set to feature some ‘official’ Battlefield 3 launches, which means they intend to do more than simply open the store and sell the game. According to EB’s Facebook page, this means “pizza, nerf gun comps, awesome prizes and freebies, and wayyy more…”

These will be held in the following select stores.

NSW
Macarthur

VIC
Werribee

QLD
Indooroopilly

WA
Galleria (8am morning launch with donuts instead of pizza)

The following stores will be opening at midnight to sell the game. Brace yourselves, this is a beastly list.

As far as we’re aware, JB Hifi will also be opening some stores for midnight launches, but it will be a select few and it’s on a store by store basis. Your best bet is to call your local store and ask.
