Students will be transformed into warriors, wizards and mercenaries when they do battle at a Playstation 2 night at the University of Lincoln.

 

The Students’ Union Delph Bar will double as a Playstation 2 arcade on Monday 10th February, with 10 Playstation pods available for students to try out the latest games.

 

Among the events planned for the night are a Lord of the Rings tournament with prizes on offer for the finalists, including copies of Virtual Fighter 4 and Lord of the Rings.

 

There will also be a Tekken 4 tournament with the Tekken 4 game and merchandising on offer to the winning participants.

 

“We’re looking forward to the Playstation 2 night, which we hope will be an ongoing monthly event for the rest of the semester,” said Andrew Parkinson, President of the Students’ Union Co-operative.

 

Photographers are welcome to attend the event, which begins at 7.30pm on Monday 10th February at the Delph Bar in the sports centre at the Brayford Pool campus of the University of Lincoln.
