Pre-Order Call of Duty: Ghosts at GameStop to receive Special Price
offer to Purchase Eminem's new The Marshall Mathers LP 2 Featuring Bonus
Studio Track for Limited Time
SANTA MONICA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
The year's most anticipated game, Call of Duty®: Ghosts,
and music icon Eminem are giving fans another reason to line up this
November 5th. With Activision's new blockbuster Call of
Duty and Eminem's new The Marshall Mathers LP 2
(Aftermath/Interscope) dropping on the same date this November, fans of
both are in store for an incredible offer at a great price. In close
collaboration with GameStop, anyone who pre-orders the game at GameStop
will get their copy of Call of Duty: Ghosts at launch,
which will include a code, at time of pick up, to download a special
edition of Eminem's new The Marshall Mathers LP 2 featuring an
exclusive, bonus studio track at a special price of $8.99.
"The energy and intensity of 'Survival' really matches Call
of Duty: Ghosts," commented Eminem. "I'm excited to continue to
be a part of the franchise."
This program continues the close coordination announced in August, when
Eminem first revealed "Survival," a track from the upcoming album
release as part of Activision's worldwide live reveal event for the
multiplayer mode of developer Infinity Ward's new title. The ongoing
collaboration between Activision and Eminem will continue later this
month with a music video trailer featuring "Survival" and Call of
Duty: Ghosts, and will extend throughout the launch of the
"Call of Duty is the ultimate adrenaline rush. It's the intensity
and heart-pounding excitement you feel as the action unfolds. And Eminem
embodies this same spirit and captures this in his music," said Tim
Ellis, CMO of Activision Publishing, Inc. "The breadth of this program
takes our partnership to a new level and will continue to unfold in the
months to come. It's going to be a massive day in entertainment with the
launch of Call of Duty: Ghosts and Marshall Mathers LP 2
both hitting on November 5th."
The offer is redeemable through Monday, November 19th,
11:59PM EST and applies to purchases of Call of Duty: Ghosts
exclusively at GameStop locations as well as select additional retailers
worldwide. Participating fans will receive a code on receipt with their
purchase of Call of Duty: Ghosts. The code will make
available for purchase at the special price of $8.99 an edition of The
Marshall Mathers LP 2 featuring not only the track "Survival," but also
a bonus, exclusive studio track.
"Call of Duty is an entertainment juggernaut and cultural
phenomenon. We are excited for the upcoming release of the new
installment of this blockbuster franchise, Call of Duty: Ghosts,"
said Bob Puzon, senior vice president of merchandising at GameStop. "We
look forward to celebrating the worldwide November launch of this great
game that is on track to be the most pre-ordered title of the year."
The news of this limited time offer follows additional pre-order
headlines from last week, in which Activision and GameStop revealed that
gamers who pre-order Call of Duty: Ghosts at GameStop will
receive a pack of content that includes the bonus classic Simon "Ghost"
Riley multiplayer character. Made famous in the original Call of
Duty®: Modern Warfare® 2, the return of one of the most iconic
characters in Call of Duty history as a playable multiplayer
character is a first for the series and is a pre-order incentive only
available at GameStop.
