Square Enix has announced that players who pre-order the Just Cause 3 Day One Edition in North America, Canada, Mexico and Chile will be entered into a contest to win an actual Island worth $50,000.
The contest will start on Dec 1 and according to a press release by Square Enix:
“The contest will be an exercise in destruction, with participants racing to score the most Chaos Points by unleashing Rico Rodriguez’s collection of guns, bombs, vehicles and his faithful grappling hook to wreak havoc all over the in-game island of Medici,”
The contest will last 90 days after which the person on top of the leaderboard will win the Island although if they want the winner can opt out to take the cash prize instead. Also if the winner is from Mexico they will only be able to choose the cash prize.
As for the Island itself, it will be chosen by the contest’s sponsors and the contest’s rules state that “All taxes and fees associated with purchasing and obtaining of Island (including but not limited to attorney’s fees, escrow, and closing costs) are the responsibility of the Winner.” Oh and the “Sponsor does not guarantee the Island to be inhabitable, developed or reachable by any means other than a boat.” You can check out the rest of the rules for the contest on Just Cause 3’s website Preorder Just Cause 3 For the Chance to Win an Actual Island.
Just Cause 3 is due to come out for the PS4, Xbox One and the PC on Dec 1st.
