CLOSES AT 5PM ADELAIDE TIME TODAY
2K have called us to let us know that this competition is open to anybody who can make it into Sydney on Wednesday October 10. They can’t cover the cost of trains, planes or buses (or even cars!) but if you can make it into Sydney proper (Surry Hills, to be exact) then you’re eligible to enter.
To apologise for the confusion, 2K have also given us five copies of XCOM: Enemy Unknown to give away to five runners up!
The competition closes soon, so get cracking!
When 2K contacted us and asked us if we’d like to send five lucky games.on.net readers to the top-secret launch party for XCOM: Enemy Unknown, we said “Yes. Yes, we would.” I gotta tell you though, this thing is pretty top-secret. They won’t even tell me where it is, and I’m the one organising to send you guys there. Wherever it is. What a mystery!
Here’s what you need to know
The event is open to people aged 18 years or older who are able to make it into Sydney’s Surry Hills. Sorry, everybody else, but that’s just the way it is! If you fit the bill, then we want to hear from you.
How do I enter?
To enter, leave a comment on this article with a link to a photo of you dressed in your best alien-exterminating outfit. Maybe you’re a private detective who knows something they shouldn’t, or maybe you’re an XCOM super-soldier from the front lines. Maybe your dad has an old Buck Rogers outfit that you can borrow — we’ll leave it up to you to determine the most stylish way to blast those alien scum.
Whatever it is, you’ll need to take a photo of yourself in it — holding a bit of paper/card with your games.on.net username on it, so we know you’re not faking — and put a link to it in the comments below.
The five best costumes will win their way to the launch party, so if you’re entering, make sure you’re free on the evening of Wednesday, October 10.
How long do I have?
The competition closes at 5:00 PM sharp (Adelaide time) on Thursday October 4. Winners will be asked to provide their details ASAP, so if you get a PM from me, please answer it as soon as you can!
Best of luck!
