Throughout the development of BioShock Infinite, we’ve twice immortalized our fans in the game, either by having parents that gifted them with a truly magnificent name, or by turning them into citizens of Columbia. I’m still jealous of Everett Sawyer being able to deliver that telegram to millions of BioShock Infinite fans.
This time we have a new sweepstakes, with the goal of putting three more fans into BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea. If chosen, your name will be placed into the world of BioShock Infinite, viewable within the third DLC Pack of the Season Pass, BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea – Episode Two. The actual location will be determined by Irrational Games staff at a future date. Each winner will receive a high-resolution screenshot of their location within BioShock Infinite, as well as directions on how to find their name once available.
To put your name in the running, all you need to do is download Clash in the Clouds on the platform of your choice and make your way through each level, completing all 60 Blue Ribbon Challenges. Upon completion of all 60, you’ll hear the familiar tone of an achievement/trophy unlock, and your username will be emblazoned upon the leaderboards for all to see. Many of you have already been playing for a few weeks, and all of that progress counts towards this goal.
We’ve set a deadline of August 27 at 9:00 AM EST for all our fans to complete this task, which gives you right around two weeks from today. Luckily, you don’t need to accomplish all 60 Blue Ribbon Challenges in one sitting, but as long as you’ve completed all 60 by August 27, you’ll be automatically entered to win. Three winners will be chosen randomly from all players that have completed the above task, across all platforms, and meet the eligibility requirements below.
NO PURCHASE NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN. OPEN TO LEGAL RESIDENTS OF THE 50 U.S. AND D.C., AT LEAST 13 YEARS OF AGE WITH PARENTAL CONSENT AND TO RESIDENTS OF CANADA (EXCEPT QUEBEC) AND THE UK 18 AND OVER. CONTEST BEGINS JULY 30, 2013 AND ENDS AUGUST 27, 2013 AT 9 AM ET. VOID WHERE PROHIBITED. SUBJECT TO THE OFFICIAL RULES, LOCATED AT http://irrationalgames.com/uncategorized/bioshock-infinite-blue-ribbon-challenge-sweepstakes-official-rules/.
Good luck—and in the coming days we’ll share a few tips and tricks on some of the more difficult Blue Ribbon Challenges. Full details on this sweepstakes can be found here, or at the link above.
