SDCC2014: Play Far Cry 4 on Mt. Everest
At Comic-Con International in San Diego Ubisoft announced an extremely unique contest tied to its upcoming shooter Far Cry 4. The prize is playing the game on Mt. Everest.
To win, make a video saying why you’d be the best person to make the trek. The winner will be trained by experts and make the trek through Himalayan landscapes featured in the game. The winning contestant won’t pack an Xbox One up the mountain, they’ll us a “one-of-a-kind” gaming device designed to hold up the harsh conditions.
We’re assuming Ubisoft is looking for an extremely fit gamer, but it doesn’t say for sure. I note that the video never goes as far as saying that you’ll be required to summit Everest, but it still sounds like whomever wins will be in for a long hike.
If you’ve got the guts, you can sign up here. Be sure to read the long legal section absolving Ubisoft and any other entity remotely involved with the contest of responsibility for your potential gruesome death.
