Child of Eden The Experience opens for business

Ubisoft's pop-up shop gives gamers the chance to get their hands on Child of Eden ahead of its UK release on June 17.


No Caption Provided Did you miss out on the cosplay-fueled fun that was the MCM Expo? Sad you didn't get your dose of free hugs? Angry that all your MCM-going friends got their hands on Child of Eden? While we aren't going to don a giant sword and give you a cuddle, Ubisoft's got you covered if you want to give Mizuguchi's latest psychedelic shooter a go.

The publisher has opened up The Child of Eden Experience in London's Soho, giving members of the public a chance to play Child of Eden in some suitably funky surroundings. Set over two floors, visitors can play the game in special booths equipped with big TVs, insanely loud sound systems, and a multitude of colored disco lights, all while being waited on hand and foot by Ubisoft lackeys.

We invited members of the GameSpot community down to the Experience last night, where we gave away an Xbox 360, Kinect, and a copy of the game to the person who got the highest score. The lucky winner was James World, who you can see looking rather pleased with himself in the photo to the right.

If you fancy yourself a spot of Kinect-powered action, The Child of Eden Experience is open from June 4 to June 17 from 12:00 to 20:00 daily at 34-35 Dean Street, London W1. Entry is free; just tell 'em GameSpot UK sent you. You can check out more photos from the event over on our Facebook gallery.
