GAMING fans are being invited to dress as their favourite characters and camp outside shops to get their hands on a hotly-anticipated new game.

Hampshire GAME stores will host the Star Wars Battlefront midnight launch and are calling on fans across Hampshire to join them on the midnight launch of the game.

• To see if your local GAME store is hosting a Star Wars Battlefront midnight launch visit the Game website.

It will be released on November 19 but GAME stores will open their doors for customers at midnight the previous day for them to have the chance to purchase the first copies.

Fans are also invited to attend in cosplay costumes, dressed up as any character of the Star wars franchise. Each store which hosts the event in Hampshire will select one winner to go through to a national Cosplay Draw and compete for many prizes.

Doors will open at 11pm on November 18 and will close at 1am on November 19.
