Square Enix giving away actual island in Just Cause 3 competition

You could opt for cash. But then you couldn't say you own an island.

Just Cause 3

Square Enix is giving away an actual, real-life island to the winner of a newly announced Just Cause 3 competition. To receive the special code required to participate in this contest, you must pre-order the game.

“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,” Square Enix said in a press release. “The more creative and inventive the mayhem, the more Chaos Points players will earn, with an actual island at stake for the top-scoring winner.”

The island’s location is to be determined by the competition’s sponsor. It is not guaranteed to be inhabitable, developed, or reachable by any means other than a boat. The island will be valued at up to $50,000 USD. Winners may also opt to receive a cash prize instead of the island.

The competition will begin at the game’s launch on December 1 and run for 90 days. More information will be available at its official website.
