SEATTLE, 2015-11-6 — /EPR Retail News/ — Amazon.com (NASDAQ:AMZN) today announced its Prime Now service will offer special delivery windows for Prime members wanting to get Activision’s Call of Duty: Black Ops III delivered just as it becomes available at midnight eastern standard time on the game’s release night – Friday, November 6.
“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,” said Stephenie Landry, Amazon’s worldwide director of Prime Now. “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.”
Developed by Treyarch for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC platforms, and published by Activision, Call of Duty: Black Ops III launches worldwide on November 6. The title was recently named by Nielsen as the “most anticipated multiplatform holiday game” of the year.
Release night pre-orders must be placed using the Prime Now app with reservations starting at midnight eastern standard time on November 4. Customers will be able to choose a special delivery window, select additional items they might need for their late night mission — such as beverages, snacks or extra gaming controllers — and pre-order the game for late night delivery on its release night, Nov. 6. There is limited availability within each delivery window so customers are urged to download the Prime Now app and be ready to reserve their delivery on Nov. 4 at midnight eastern when pre-orders begin in the app.
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.
