With the release of Just Cause 3 a bit under 2 months away, Avalanche Studios and Square Enix are giving gamers the opportunity to create their own launch trailer. Fans have until November 12th 23:59 GMT to submit their entries here. There is a $5000USD prize up for grabs including a top-end Intel gaming PC.
The trailers sent in for the competition will be judged across three categories: Best Action, Best Use of Audio and Best Humor. From these categories, one Best Overall Winner will win the grand prize and their video will become the official launch trailer.
“Just Cause 3 is a game designed with streamers and content creators in mind; a true sandbox built to be explored and played creatively. To that end, it felt right to offer our fans – who’ve posted over 4 million Just Cause 2 trailers to YouTube since launch – the opportunity to create our launch trailer” commented Jon Brooke VP Brand & European Marketing, Square Enix. “It takes a leap of faith to invite your fans to make something as important as your launch trailer, but we’re really excited to see what they come up with.”
Contestants may use the video footage in the online Creative Kit provided or shoot something entirely new to enter. Licensed music from Razihel is also provided as a full track or music stems to remix. Participants can download and use a fully functional copy of Cakewalk’s SONAR Steam Edition.
