[This unedited press release is made available courtesy of Gamasutra and its partnership with notable game PR-related resource GamesPress.]

February 06th 2014 GAME and PlayStation are joining forces to bring the highly anticipated upcoming release, inFAMOUS: Second Son, to 40 stores across the UK. The lock-in is exclusive to GAME Reward members and is a chance for them to get their hands on the sought after game before its release. What’s more, it also represents the first next-gen release from publisher SONY since the PS4 launched in November and restarts the hugely successful GAME lock-in series for 2014.

Developed by Sucker Punch Productions, this PS4 exclusive promises to be a huge hit with the UK gaming community and represents a unique chance for gamers to get to grips with this stunning new entry to the inFAMOUS franchise.

Every GAME conduit who is lucky enough to take part will be kept fully fuelled with free supplies of food and drink as they take to the in-game streets of Seattle, Washington and fight back against the oppressive DUP. And of course, the knowledgeable GAME staff will be on hand to talk about the title and offer goodies throughout the night. To attend the lock-in gamers must be 16 years or over and should visit their selected store to sign up and receive an entry ticket.

GAME is also offering an exclusive Collector's Edition of the title. Available only at GAME, the inFAMOUS: Second Son Collector's Edition offers a host of superhuman collectables and bonus in-game content in a stylish case designed after Delsin's own jacket.

The Collector's Edition includes:

• inFAMOUS: Second Son Full Game

• Delsin Jacket Material Game Case

• inFAMOUS: Second Son Collectable Coin

• inFAMOUS: Second Son Bottle Opener

• inFAMOUS: Second Son Badges

• Delsin Rowe Replica Beanie Hat

• Bonus DLC: Cole's Legacy Legendary Vest

Full details and all versions available to preorder can be found in store or online at:

In 2013 nearly 15,000 gamers attended a lock-in, with GAME working alongside some of the biggest publishers and developers to bring its customers the exclusive chance to get hands on with the most anticipated titles before launch.

Ailsa McKnight, Marketing Director at GAME said: “We’re really excited to be partnering with PlayStation and kick-off the 2014 lock-in events with such an amazing title like inFAMOUS: Second Son. The UK gaming community loved our lock-in events last year and we are thrilled to be bringing the series back to our stores, giving our customers an incredible opportunity to get hands on with some of the most anticipated titles this year, exclusively at GAME. inFAMOUS Second Son really demonstrates the power of PS4 and we can't wait to share that experience with our community - we'll be bringing more news on 2014 lock-in series in the near future."
