Amazon's Prime Now will bring you the latest Call of Duty game at midnight

Taking part in the midnight launch of a video game usually involves driving to your local GameStop or Best Buy and sitting in line with your fellow gamers for awhile. But Amazon seems to think the whole communal aspect is a bit unnecessary. Today the company announced that Prime Now, its one-hour delivery service, will be making midnight deliveries of Call of Duty: Black Ops III on November 6th. To get the game right upon its launch hour, you'll have to preorder using the Prime Now app beginning at midnight ET on November 4th.

So technically you'll need to stay up late for two nights instead of just killing time in line on the eve of Black Ops III's release. You could risk waiting until later in the morning on November 4th to preorder, but Amazon is already warning that "there is limited availability within each delivery window" so customers are being encouraged to be ready to buy in at midnight. You'll be able to choose a special "delivery window," and from the sounds of it, some customers might have to wait until 2AM for their delivery.

But on the plus side, you can tack items like beverages, snacks, and whatever else Prime Now sells onto your order, and they'll arrive alongside the game. Prime Now is available in Atlanta, Austin, Baltimore, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Indianapolis, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Manhattan, Miami, Minneapolis, Orange County, Phoenix, Portland, Sacramento, San Antonio, San Francisco, San Jose, and Seattle.
