Gamers living in Amazon Prime Now service areas can skip Black Ops 3 midnight launch events. Amazon is delivering the game to homes at midnight.
Call of Duty: Black Ops III will be released midnight on Friday, November 6. To be one of the first to play Black Ops III, gamers have to head out to a store like GameStop or Walmart that hosts a midnight release event. Amazon has now another, rather convenient option. Call of Duty fans living in a Prime Now service area can stay home and Amazon will deliver Black Ops III at midnight.
Stephenie Landry, Amazon’s worldwide director of Prime Now explains: "Why wait in lines on release night when we’ll bring Call of Duty: Black Ops III right to your door? We’re making it easy for hardcore gamers to download the app, reserve a coveted delivery window for midnight delivery and sit back while the game comes right to their doors. Our Prime customers will be on their way to ranking up before they know it, and all without having to leave the comfort of their house. We love offering exclusive opportunities for our Prime members and the gaming community, and now they can get the most anticipated game of the year, Call of Duty: Black Ops III, moments after it is released.”
To get to enjoy the Black Ops III release night delivery, customers need to make pre-orders using the Prime Now app. The reservations are starting at midnight eastern standard time on November 4. This is important. Amazon urges to reserve early as there is limited availability within each delivery window. Amazon also offers customers to order beverages, snacks or extra gaming controllers with the game.
For these special, late night Call of Duty: Black Ops III two-hour delivery windows, there will be no delivery fees.
Amazon's Prime Now is currently offered in Atlanta, Austin, Baltimore, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Indianapolis, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Manhattan, Miami, Minneapolis, Orange County, Phoenix, Portland, Sacramento, San Antonio, San Francisco, San Jose, and Seattle.
Amazon was expected to also announce the details of the Countdown to the Black Friday Deals Week sales event that is expected to begin on Sunday, November 1. Last year the online retailer has announced the early Amazon Black Friday sale on October 30. The announcement has revealed a list of deal highlights. Overall Amazon offered 15,000 limited time deals. The reason why Amazon has not yet announced the Countdown to Black Friday 2015 sale is unclear.
It is certain that Amazon will offer an early Black Friday 2015 sale as the company has prepared new Countdown to Black Friday Deals Week banners.
