Midnight Club LA Launch Event Feat. Eagles of Death Metal
So its pretty much obvious at this point how excited we've been about the latest installment of Midnight Club taking place in our beloved city. Well the date has finally arrived, and what better way to uphold the Rockstar name than having Hollywood's quintessential rock n' rollers Eagles of Death Metal performing at the game's midnight launch event at the Virgin Megastore? The group has long stated its passion for establishing themselves as LA's band, and with their new album launching in just a few weeks, we can't wait to get our hands on the game and check out some new tracks included on the Midnight Club playlist.
Like we've said before, our friends at Rockstar worked particularly hard on making the LA landscape as realistic as possible. We can't expect much less from the publisher that has brought us such detail-oriented titles as Grand Theft Auto and Bully, so check out the trailer one more time and prepare to virtually fulfill that dream of driving west Sunset Blvd. at 65 mph.
