A Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 Live ‘esports experience’ will take place in London this weekend.
Fans will get to play the game from Saturday November 10th to Monday November 12th, ahead of its launch on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC on November 13th. Activision says it will “turn the traditional sports bar experience on its head and bring to life Black Ops 2’s multiplayer and esports.”
The ‘exclusive Black Ops 2 destination space’ will open at Bloomsbury Ballroom, Victoria House, Bloomsbury Square, Holborn, London, WC1B 4DA.
A statement read: “Bloomsbury Ballroom has been transformed into the ultimate Call of Duty destination, complete with an esports arena, zombie inspired diner and sports bar to watch all the action live on big screens, keeping visitors entertained when not playing.”
Apparently, Meat Liquor is providing the food at the event, which will feature a Zombie Diner with Zombie Burgers and Zombie Cocktails.
