Given, that I work in Activision/Blizzard/King -corporation, every once in a while the job has nice perks.
Today, I got to go to CoD WWII launch party in Stockholm!
It was the first time I've been to a launch party of a game ever! Of course a corpo party is a corpo party. Lot of jada-jada, blah-blah and free booze. But a game launch party of course is about the game. There was an option for every party guest to play the game on PS4. Then they had invited couple of Swedish semi-celebs to play in a friendly competition eSports-style 6-vs-6. Btw, the winners went home with brand new CoD WWII special edition PS4s. Insiders told me that all of the celeb-gamers had an option to practice playing the non-released game at the Activision office in Stockholm.
And of course, nobody went home with empty hands. Everybody was given a goodie-bag with a CoD WWII T-shirt and a PS4 store code for the game.
I'm not a huge fan of FPSs on console, so, I think I'm not going to play much that one. I'll wait for some PC Steam-codes to float around the office (eventually they will) and then start playing.
