The Destiny midnight UK launch at GAME is kicking off in a couple of hours and in this article we wanted to highlight the open times along with other details. The release date is set for tomorrow, although you can get in-store tonight and take the retail box version home as the clock passes midnight to be one of the first playing.
If you don’t get to the Destiny midnight release, then GAME also promises to open select stores early for another chance to pickup the game and start playing right away on September 9th.
GAME’s Destiny midnight store opening times – we can confirm the doors open around 11:45pm in most cases for midnight releases, although some will open a little earlier to help gamers with trade-ins. You should also expect the stores to close by 1am, or maybe even slightly sooner.
Whether your local GAME UK store is taking part in the Destiny midnight will depend on its manager. We haven’t seen a list of stores opening, so it’s a good idea for our readers to phone their local store to find out. If you know that your local GAME store will be open for a midnight launch of Destiny, then please leave a comment with that stores location below.
Personally, we love these events thanks to the discussion we’ve had while in the queue. Will you be going to the Destiny midnight launch at GAME UK? It’s worth mentioning that the servers might already be up for some people that got their game early.
