Square-Enix has decided that instead of churning out trailers for its upcoming open-world action game, Just Cause 3, it would get the public to do it for them, with payment of course.

There are three categories:

  1. Best Action;
  2. Best Use of Audio; and
  3. Best Humour.

From these categories there will be one overall winner who will go onto winning the prize and her/his video will be the Just Cause 3 launch trailer.

What you have to do is head on over to the competition page  and follow the details. Square-Enix has released a kit that you can use to make this process a little easier. The prize consists of the following:

Winner

  • 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
  • NEAT microphone
Runner up
  • Top spec PC-rig, including latest 6th Gen Intel Core i7 Processor (also known as Skylake) and UHD monitor

The judges are made up of experts from Squarer-Enix and Avalanche Studio. They will decide who is best and who wins the prize.

We are still awaiting confirmation to see if South Africa is eligible for entry into this competition, but it seems like it is in the EMEA region and the US, so we should be there. In case you were wondering, Just Cause 3 releases on PS4, Xbox One, and PC on 1 December 2015.
