Square Enix’s New Promotion Lets You Create the Just Cause 3 Launch Trailer for a $5000 Prize Package

on October 15, 2015 10:47 AM

Rico Rodriguez’s latest adventure is set to be unleashed this December with Just Cause 3, and publisher Square Enix is preparing for a big marketing push by letting you take the wheel and make an epic trailer for the game’s launch.

Square Enix announced its new “My Just Cause 3 Trailer” promotion, which encourages fans to take part in creating the Just Cause 3 launch trailer for a $5000 prize package of neat items, and of course an infinite amount of bragging rights at helping to launch Just Cause 3.

Square detailed the contest in a new page on the Just Cause 3 website, as the company mentioned contest entrants must create “an epic 1-2 minute trailer that captures all the action, energy, fun and atmosphere of Just Cause 3 the best,” with pretty much free-reign to use whatever materials you want: you can shoot live-action footage, create an animation, or use a gameplay footage creative kit provided by Square Enix.

A panel of judges from Square will pick a winner from three categories in Best Action, Best Humour, and Best Use of Audio. From those three category winners, the overall winner of the contest will be selected, with two prize packages to be given out.

The first prize package will be given to the runners-up winners of the Best Action/Humour/Use of Audio category winners, with the prizes to contain:

  • Top spec PC-rig, including latest 6th Gen Intel Core i7 Processor (also known as Skylake) and UHD monitor
  • Collector’s Edition of Just Cause 3
  • NEAT microphone
  • SONAR Steam Edition Professional

runners up

The overall winner of the contest will receive the following prizes:

  • Opportunity to have the winning trailer submission to be used as the official Just Cause 3 trailer (priceless!)
  • KRK – RPG6 studio reference speakers
  • Tascam – 2×2 Audio Interface
  • Epiphone Les Paul Custom Pro Guitar
  • SONAR Steam Edition Platinum
  • Top spec PC-rig, including latest 6th Gen Intel Core i7 Processor (also known as Skylake) and UHD monitor
  • Collector’s Edition of Just Cause 3
