When does the midnight launch event start and where?

So far, the event has only been announced to be taking part in one location – Birmingham, UK, at the Bullring store. We don’t currently know if any other branches will host their own midnight launches. What we do know is that the Birmingham event will start at 11pm on February 17th, 2022, but you won’t actually be able to buy the game until 00:01 on February 18th. You’ll want to get there early, though, if you want a chance to grab that limited poster.
