Remember that episode of the Simpsons where Bart chose the elephant ‘gag prize’ over cold, hard cash in a radio contest?
Just Cause, as a series, is a bit mental. Just Cause 3 is no exception.
Today, however, Square Enix have today excelled themselves by announcing the Just Cause 3 Win an Island competition. Entry is open for anyone who pre-orders the Just Cause 3 Day 1 Edition and registers it with Square Enix following the release on December 1, 2015. Then, during the contest period, whoever racks up the most Chaos Points wins, and they get their very own island*.
“How do I accumulate Chaos Points?” You might be asking. Here’s the Just Cause 3 Win an Island announcement trailer to explain more:
So, blowing shit up, then.
But remember, in order to stand a chance of coming out on top in the Just Cause 3 Win an Island contest, you’ll need to blow shit up in the most creative and imaginative ways possible. And presumably also play the game around the clock during the contest period to give yourself the best chance.
Perhaps the Just Cause 3 Win an Island contest won’t come down to the most skilled, or the most imaginative. It might come down to the most unemployed, or the biggest insomniac, or the group prepared to treat it like a sweatshop and grind out those Chaos Points in shifts under one PSN/Xbox Live account…
Anyway, here’s hoping the Just Cause 3 Win an Island contest won in the spirit of honest endeavour and good clean fun. Where, of course, values of good clean fun equate to blowing things up with a rocket launcher while parachuting and grappling around an island.
* Up to the value of $50,000 USD. In a location of Square Enix’s choosing. But then, the winner of the Just Cause 3 Win an Island contest can also take that fifty grand as a cheque…
