Ubisoft and partners Microsoft and GameStop are pleased to announce the official Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Conviction debut on April 1, 2010. Celebrating the upcoming launch of this highly-anticipated game, releasing exclusively on the Xbox 360, the Premiere event will be held at Les Deux Nightclub in Hollywood, California while ten other first-to-plays will take place in GameStop locations across the country. Featuring first-to-play co-op gaming sessions for Splinter Cell fans and celebrities alike, these events are the perfect time and place for Splinter Cell fans to get their Sam Fisher fix before the game hits store shelves on April 13, 2010.
Splinter Cell fans in the Los Angeles area are invited to participate in first-to-play sessions from 2:00 – 6:00 p.m. PST prior to the celebrity red carpet Premiere event beginning at 8 p.m PST. The Premiere will feature the “Search for Sam Fisher,” a live interactive game pitting attendees against each other in the search for Sam himself. Fifteen attendees (21+) at the L.A. co-op gaming event will be chosen to participate in the search and one lucky grand prize winner will win the ultimate gaming grand prize featuring the Xbox 360 Splinter Cell Conviction Special Edition Bundle and a library of Ubisoft Xbox 360 games.
Concurrent with the Premiere, GameStop is hosting first-to-play co-op demo events at 10 store locations nationwide from 9:00 p.m. to midnight on April 1, 2010, in Boston, Orlando, New York City (two locations), Denver, Chicago, San Francisco, San Jose, Dallas and New Jersey. Attendees will be the first-to-play with the GameStop exclusive in-game SPAS-12 suppressor shotgun and have the opportunity to win Xbox and Ubisoft prizes, including Xbox Live Gold memberships and copies of Splinter Cell Conviction. The first 100 attendees at each location will also receive a free Splinter Cell Conviction beanie.
