Namco Bandai have put a lot of thought into their game adaptation of the brand new Star Trek movie, paying close attention to co-op and making sure the action is as true to the series as possible, appealing to fans and Trekkies along the way.
In a deal with GAME and Cineworld cinemas, it seems that they want to appease loyal Trekkies a bit more by offering free (yes FREE) cinema tickets to Star Trek: Into Darkness with every pre-order or day one purchase of the third person shooter developed by Digital Extremes.
A small company called “Hollywood Movie Money” have worked with Namco to grant everyone who buys the game on day one, a unique code that can be redeemed instantly for a ticket to be used at any Cineworld in the UK. As if that wasn’t enough, you’ll also be entered into a prize draw for a chance to win a VIP trip to the red carpet, with five-star accommodation on the night of the Star Trek: Into Darkness premier. Yes, for once us lucky Brits are getting some special treatment.
What do you think? A nice treat or a horrible ploy to bribe gamers into buying what could be another movie to game flop?
