The popularity of battle royale games such as Fortnite, PUBG, and Apex Legends has reached the elite of the elite, it would seem. That is what one millionaire is looking to do, while remaining anonymous. And among those people is a millionaire who wants to make this come true on a private island.
If you think you're up for the job, you can register to be a potential game maker here.
The competition itself, at least what they've thought out so far, will last for three days on a private island, with 12 hours of competition per day. The champ of three-day Airsoft challenge will be granted £100,000. The organisers appear to give much consideration to safety, as they promise to provide food and all the necessary equipment, including that for overnight camping.
The prospective buyer's ambition is to create a "last person standing" championship with a £100,000 jackpot, to run towards the end of the year.
Progressive Conservatives loosen Ontario booze, gambling, rules in first budget
Families are expected to receive around $1,250 a year through the program, which will be made retroactive this year to January 1. The government will also let municipalities establish rules about where booze can be consumed in public, such as in some parks.
So how does this work in real life?
Hush Hush's founder Aaron Harpin commented on the idea. Presumably you'll need to be a paintballing pro to even stand a chance, but if this becomes a success there's the possibility that real life battle royale could become an annual thing.
One would have to assume this customer with very deep pockets must be exhausted of playing these games digitally and wants to see them brought to life.
The post that was listed on the website said that the unknown employer is looking for "somebody who can help structure the field for a 100-man fight royale propelled occasion". A 45K-pound contract will be offered for organising the game with an expected deadline of six weeks. The lucky game maker who nets this project will walk away with a good chunk of change as well. We expect that this time something will actually happen once players are finished, which might mean everyone was too fast for Epic's expectations at first, so the company had to make them do it all over again so as not to spoil the surprise. One thing is for sure, this event will be talked about for quite some time.
