With less than a month and a half to go until Just Cause 3 launches on consoles, Square Enix have decided to not just simply release a launch trailer in the lead-up to its release. Instead, they are inviting the public to create their very own trailer. Contestants are being asked to create a one-to-two minute trailer that “captures all the action, energy and atmosphere” of Just Cause 3, with a $5,000 prize package on offer to the winner.
The trailer will be judged across three categories: Best Action, Best Use of Audio and Best Humor. From these categories, one Best Overall Winner will be chosen for the grand prize and their video will become the official Just Cause 3 Launch Trailer.
Now, you may be wondering how someone could do this when there is no means of capturing in-game footage. Contestants have been given access to an online Creative Kit, or are able to shoot something entirely new. Licensed music from Razihel is also provided as a full track or music stems to remix. Participants who don’t have audio editing software can download a fully functional copy of Cakewalk’s Sonar Steam Edition to make cutting edge tracks for their trailer. More information on this contest can be found HERE.
This contest is open to those residing in Australia (except Tasmania for some reason), Belgium, Canada excluding Quebec, Chile, Denmark, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Netherlands, Norway, Romania, Russia, Spain, United Kingdom, United States (excluding NY, Rhode Island and Florida), Portugal, Brazil
