After so many months of waiting, we are down to under a week until Rockstar Games release Grand Theft Auto V worldwide. While games like this would generally receive a midnight launch if anything, EB Games Australia have chosen to launch this game in style…. via a midnight launch party held in World Square, Sydney.
The party starts; 9.30pm, Monday 16th September, featuring Australia’s best DJ’s and upcoming acts, warming up to when the star of the show, Grand Theft Auto V goes on sale at Midnight. The night will be hosted by Danny Clayton, MC Losty, Kez (EB Games Community Manager) who will be giving away money can’t buy Rockstar Games Merchandise, EB Expo tickets and more across the evening.
Featured live acts include:
- Alison Wonderland
- Leah Mencel + Lee Monro
- The Havknotz
Everyone is invited to attend this free event, however if a customer wishes to pick up a copy of Grand Theft Auto V at midnight and get a free burritos from Guzman Y Gomez (Limited to 400 people), they must preorder and pay in full for their copy of Grand Theft Auto V at any of these EB Games locations:
- Royal Randwick
- Greenwood Plaza
- Chatswood Chase
- EB World Square

- Birkenhead Point
EB Games will also be opening at midnight to release the game in over 320 locations across Australia (excludes WA). Western Australian stores will be open from 8am Tuesday 17th September – customers are invited to prepay their title in full in order to gain access to express queues during the breakfast launch. Customers should check with their local store for details. The company released a list of stores to fall under each category HERE (Although be mindful that this list could have changed since it was posted).

Grand Theft Auto V (GTA V) is no ordinary game, so we wanted to go all out and give our customers a launch like no other. Music is just the beginning; customers will have the chance to participate in competitions such as Burrito eating and Grand Theft Auto V cosplay to win money-can’t-buy Grand Theft Auto V prizes. There are free burritos for the first 400 customers and of course the main event- being able to be one of the first people in the world to get their hands of Grand Theft Auto V at midnight.
