With the PlayStation 5 releasing in the UK on November 19, many fans who were unable to get a pre-order will be searching high and low for the hit console from Sony. Here are some of the best places to get it in these regions.

The PlayStation 5 is here. After releasing in the United States and other regions on November 12, 2020, Sony fans in the UK will finally be able to get their hands on the highly-anticipated system on November 19, 2020.

Despite releasing on a completely different day than the United States, players in the UK will more than likely face the same problems that people did on the other side of the pond: a frustrating experience with very little chance of getting your hands on one, unless, of course, you pre-ordered.

The PS5 will cost around $499.99 and $399.99 for the Standard and Digital Editions, respectively.

Still, not all hope is lost and retailers will indeed have some on release day. Here are some of the best places to get your hands on the console over in the UK when it launches.

Where to find the PS5 online in the UK

Over in the UK, the retailers that will have the PS5 seem to be limited on launch day, however, there are still a few options that fans can try out.

Amazon has already confirmed that a slew of new PS5 stock will be coming to the UK store at 12:00 PM GMT on November 19, 2020. In addition, retailer GAME has confirmed that they will also have a limited number of stock on their website as well, with the consoles becoming available at 9:00 AM GMT. 

It’s unknown whether either restock is just the standard version or if the Digital Edition, which is already proving to be more rare than its disc-based brother, will be getting some as well.

For either retailer, it’s worth reminding fans that they should dedicate and set aside from time to try and get their hands on the console. If it’s anything like the original launch a week ago, and it more than likely will be, you’ll have to either continuously keep trying to check out or wait in a long queue. Either way, it will be annoying.

Amazon
Currently, the PS5 is listed as “unavailable” from Amazon UK.

PS5 at physical retail stores in the UK

As previously announced, due to the current world health situation, PlayStation 5 consoles will NOT be available in physical stores across the world, unless you have a pre-order secured.

This means that, if you don’t already have on pre-purchased, you’ll be stuck getting one through the online retailers listed above until further notice. Currently, it’s unknown when consoles will be available in stores, although one would imagine it won’t be for a while.

Call of Duty: Mobile Season 13 is on the way, and an early teaser suggests a classic, fan-pleasing Black Ops map is coming to the game.

Excitement for the next update for CoD: Mobile is heating up, as the game’s developers have begun hinting at what players can expect from Season 13.

As with every season, a new map will be released alongside the update, and it appears that this time around we’re going back in time with a map from 2018’s Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.

Yes, it looks like the Russian version of Nuketown is coming to your iPhone and Android devices.

Black Ops 4 Nuketown coming to CoD: Mobile

A teaser image shared by the official Call of Duty: Mobile Twitter account on November 28 has fans convinced that Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’s version of Nuketown is coming to the game.

The picture appears to be taken from inside the green building on the left side of the map. Through the window, the red building on the opposite side of the map can clearly be seen, as well as the snow-covered landscape surrounding it.

The image was shared alongside the caption: “Bundle up! It has been getting quite chilly lately… coming to #CODMobile in the next season!”

Black Ops 4’s Nuketown is a remake of the classic map from the original Black Ops. The layout is almost identical, except for the fact that this version takes place at a Russian nuclear missile testing site during the Cold War.

It’s likely that the Season 13 map that appears in CoD: Mobile will be an exact replica of the Nuketown that appeared in Black Ops 4, although there could be some minor differences – we’ll have to wait and see.

It will join previously-added maps from the main Call of Duty titles including Modern Warfare 2’s High-rise and Black Ops 2’s Meltdown maps.

There’s no official release date for Season 13 or the new Nuketown map yet, but we’re expecting to see them in the coming weeks. Season 13 is rumored to begin on December 22, 2020, and will take us through to January, 2021.
