GAME customers are being given the opportunity to get their hands on Splinter Cell: Blacklist a month before the game goes on sale.

12 stores across the country will be hosting hands-on lock-in events next Friday 26, July and Saturday 27, July, where fans will get to try out Sam Fisher's latest adventure before it hits stores on August 23.

Free food and drink will also be supplied.

"Gamers keep telling us how much they love the unique community experience they get at our in-store events," commented store director Dave Howard, "and with a huge and varied programme of Lock-Ins planned for the next few months, the Splinter Cell events are a great way to kick off the gaming season."
