There will be thousands of retail locations offering Watch Dogs as a midnight release and GameStop will make sure it’s a night to remember with 3,500 US launch parties taking place. Just like previous events, each GameStop location will help gamers connect with contests, giveaways, and gameplay being played while you wait.
The Watch Dogs midnight release wait will also be eased by having the opportunity to get some exclusive hands-on time with the game, although you’d need to be at your participating store by 9PM (local time) if you want the chance to play.
GameStop made it clear that Watch Dogs is the most pre-ordered Xbox One/PS4 game yet and this alone should give you an idea about how busy these launch parties will be. The activities at GameStop stores will not only help pass the time, but will also be a great night out with a lot of celebration and fun.
If you’ve pre-ordered Watch Dogs at GameStop, then you can expect to get the Palace Pack DLC for free. This downloadable content features a single-player mission, a ATM hack boost, investigation bonus, and PS4/PS3 orders also receive 60 minutes of exclusive gameplay.
You can find out about all the US GameStop retail locations taking part in the Watch Dogs midnight release by contacting your local store. The official website offers contact information at gamestop.com/browse/storesearch.aspx.

The US won’t be the only country with launch parties, we also hear there will be events at EB Games stores in New Zealand and GAME UK stores. Those of you looking to get the PC version might want to watch this video revealing the difference between ultra and low settings.
