Thanks to UK games retailers GAME and Gamestation, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 fans will be able to bag themselves some exclusives and “the opportunity to receive a wealth of additional bonuses, not available with any other retailer” through the retailer’s ‘Call of Duty Perks programme’, which has just launched.
In exchange for a £10 deposit paid against the cover price of a copy of the forthcoming hotly-anticipated shooter, gamers will pick up up the following perks:
- As well as receiving the Nuketown 2025 map, you will also get:
- Quadrotor drone avatar/theme*
- Automatic entry into regular sweepstakes
- Double sided Nuketown 2025 poster**
- Plus LOADS of more stuff still to be announced
If you’ve already pre-ordered in store, the instructions are to go back to your local store where you preordered the game and place an additional £5 deposit to get access to the perks, and if you pre-ordered on line with a linked Reward card, you need fo nothing as you’ve already been upgraded. If you don’t have a linked Reward Card, or yours is currently unlinked, all you need to do is link your current card or set up a new one for free.
GAME are also promising ”additional bonuses”, but without any confirmation of what those might be just yet. And bear in mind, the earlier you get in, the more perks you’ll get.
Here’s the full down-low from GAME:
