The latest addition to the Call of Duty franchise is just about ready for it prime time, and to celebrate the launch of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare on Xbox One, Microsoft will be hosting launch events in all of its 104 Microsoft Stores across the United States. The events will take place on November 2nd starting at 9PM local time.
10 Microsoft Stores in particular will host a special Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Day Zero event that will see the Stores re-furnished to create a military-style theme. The stores that will host the special event are the ones in Fashion Valley (San Diego, CA), Oakbrook Center (Oakbrook, IL), Park Meadows (Lone Tree, CO), St. John’s Town Center (Jacksonville, FL), The Shops at La Cantera (San Antonio, TX), The Woodlands (The Woodlands, TX), University Village (Seattle, WA), Walden Galleria (Buffalo, NY), Westfield Century City (Santa Monica, CA), and Yorkdale (Toronto, ON).
Customers that visit these stores will take be able to take part in a “training course” where they can check-in to 5 stations in-store for a chance to win an Xbox One, a mess hall where they can sample Call of Duty-branded snacks and beverages while being entertained by a live DJ, and a “combat zone” that lets them try out the game on the available Xbox One gaming stations.
For those that pre-order the game, all Microsoft Stores will offer a $10 gift card to spend, and even those that pre-ordered via the online Xbox Store will receive one to spend online. Customers get a chance to score additional freebies, which you can read about in detail over at the VIA link below.
