Far Cry 4 promotional contest could send you to Mt. Everest


If you're so excited for Far Cry 4 that you'd risk death by avalanche, blizzard or grumpy yeti just to play the open-world shooter a few weeks early, Ubisoft has launched a PR stunt that may be right up your alley.

Officially dubbed the "Far Cry 4 Quest for Everest" contest, the promotion asks fans to submit a YouTube video explaining why they would be the best candidate to trek to the Mt. Everest base camp for a private, early hands-on session with the game. Ubisoft urges entrants to "be creative" with their videos, and cautions that only those in "very good physical condition" will be eligible to join the expedition. Further, the winner must have a valid US passport and be willing to travel to Everest during the month of October.

Assuming you meet all of these qualifications and can record something pithy and clever (but no more than two minutes in length), you can find details on where to submit your YouTube clip at the official contest website. Before you dash off to submit your entry though, keep in mind that the world's highest mountain has been particularly lethal this year.
