In a galaxy far, far away ...

OK. Hold that thought. The first thing that needs to be done is to make it abundantly clear that what is about to follow is not an official or sanctioned launch event by EA, LucasArts, Disney or Prima Interactive. But it’s the game that is the real hero, and the event is a bunch of Star Wars fans willing to do anything to pretend they’re Darth Vader, Han Solo or Princess Leia and to do so with some friends and associates while celebrating the release of (and giving you some hands-on time with) Star Wars Battlefront.

With that out of the way, let’s get back to that galaxy far, far way. While it’s not actually Tatooine, it’s only far away if you don’t live in Cape Town, because on Friday 20 November at the MWEB offices in Parow, Cape Town, the GameZone team will be hosting a launch event for Star Wars Battlefront and we want you to be one of the friends and associates that celebrate it all with us and the headline sponsors Gigabyte.

Of course, while you’re enjoying the various gaming moments from your favourite Sci-Fi franchise (or at least one of them we hope) at the MCave, you can expect to bag some of the best swag we’ve ever had up for grabs at a launch event before. We’ll reveal more on them later, but we would also suggest bringing along you credit card as will be in attendance with some discounted Star Wars merchandise and game.

We will have the usual interaction of humans and machines happening (in other words, play the game, win some swag), as well as the Twitter giveaway mechanic, so bring a Twitter enabled phone to get the best opportunity to walk away happy from the event. On top of that, we encourage you to dress up as your favourite Star Wars character, because that would just make an awesome event, even more awesome… and there may even be a prize up for grabs.

How to bag your Golden Ticket

There will be food, there will be drink, and it will all be a blast(er), so get yourself in line to be one of the 40 golden tickets up for grabs.

If you are over 18 and in Cape Town on Friday 20 November and can be at the MWEB GameZone headquarters in Parow from 6pm, you can get into the random draw for one of the 40 golden tickets.
