The move is part of the firm’s sponsorship of the event, that was announced last week. Gamers must vote for who they would like to win, and then register for the free game from the GMG microsite. Gamers will be sent their code within 24 hours.

Now everyone who votes, and has already voted, in the 2013 Golden Joysticks has the chance to benefit from a free game from Green Man Gaming, thanks to our friends at 2K Games.”
The Golden Joystick Awards 2013 takes place at the Westminster Park Plaza on Friday, October 25th.
