A host of WWE parties will be kicking off across the UK next month to promote WWE 13.

The game's publisher, THQ, is encouraging fans to host parties in their own homes and showcase the events using social media.

THQ has partnered with IGN, Kerrang Radio and Come Round to offer 500 UK fans to own a copy of the game before anyone else. 

Entrants need nine friends to attend their own parties on Saturday, October 27th. 

One of the 500 groups will be chosen to attend the WWE Raw Live event at Birmingham's LG Arena on Monday, November 5th. There they'll be able to meet WWE 13 cover star CM Punk.

Jon Rooke, marketing director for UK and Europe at THQ, said: “This really is the full package for the ultimate WWE Fan. We are really excited to watch the parties unfold on October 27th and to see the exclusive content supplied by Kerrang! Radio and IGN UK."

Alex Baker, commercial programming manager and presenter added: “We at Kerrang Radio are absolutely thrilled to be involved with the WWE 13 campaign, and will be leveraging our presenters’ genuine love of WWE through exciting on-air mechanics which puts our listeners’ love of gaming and WWE at the heart of the action.

"I cannot wait to get this campaign on air and feel the listeners’ reaction. Off the top rope!"
