Will Cruz thought it was a joke. Yeah, many of us did. Now he will be the lucky person who will play Far Cry 4 from the highest mountain in the planet.
Quest for the Everest may be one of the craziest campaigns ever seen, since climbing the highest mountain in the world is far from being an easy effort. Anyway, Will Cruz says he’s already getting ready, since he’s a hiking fan.
I can really relate to his moment of glory: “They sent me an email while I was at work. I was on the phone with a new hire and I was trying to set them up with a schedule. I get this email that says Congratulations, you won! and I instantly just checked out. I couldn’t hear anything the person was saying. I just held my hand up in the air and started cheering.“
When asked about preparations for this lifetime adventure, he said he’s already running three miles every day in addition to gym hours. I guess he’ll double his efforts from now on.
I am actually a bit jealous. I mean, it’s not only about marketing and games, it’s also about getting to actually know and feel the cultural and natural setting of one of your favorite games. His whole Far Cry 4 gaming experience will be truly unique.
Far Cry 4 releases on November 18th for PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC.
