The lights are on
Winners have been chosen!
Congratulations to Azaiatavin, TheBritishness, and Starbucknessmonster. Check for messages and get back to us with the info we requested. Thanks to all that entered.
As you might have heard, a few of us have been defending the San Francisco Bay Area (circa 2046) from mutants, raiders, and our favorite critters, the hellbugs. We've got two different contests to tell you about that will help you get into both the game and the show.
Trion Worlds and SyFy Channel have announced a new contest that will see an intrepid Ark Hunter rendered in an upcoming episode of Defiance. Trion and SyFy are being cryptic about how and where the winner will be featured, but it's very clearly not a walk-on role.
In order to enter, players must enter a special code into their account (code and instructions here), complete a player-vs-enemy and a player-vs-player "pursuit" (in-game goal set), and work to accumulate the most battle-won salvage. Full instructions are available on the official page, and the press release is on page two of this story.
Of course, you need to play the game in order to have an opportunity to win your appearance. We've got three copies of the Ultimate Edition of the game (which comes with a messenger bag, hellbug statue, art book, in-game perks and currency, and a one-year season pass. We've got one copy for each platform (PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3).
In order to win, tell us why you should win a copy of the game and how you're going to become the best ark hunter you can be. Leave a comment below, and be sure to note which platform you'd prefer. The drawing will end tomorrow, Wednesday May 1, at 5 PM Central.
Email the author Mike Futter, or follow on Google+, Twitter, and Game Informer.
After the Volge attack and the recent murders in Defiance I decided to leave town and head for San Fran, and since I don't have a job now I plan on becoming a full time ark hunter.
360 would be my 1st choice 2. PS3 and 3. pc.
Ima be the best arc hunter I can be by keeping gameinformer in heart as I send hellbugs crying to their mothers, bring mutants to their tremblin' knees and turn those raiders to mush.
and I'd do this all on the platform of PC
Im apart of a chapter (Dark Angels - yes the ones from 40K) thats 70 strong maybe 25 strong in defiance. Were more than clan mates, were brothers. The idea of one of us being featured on the show or even made signifficant in game would bring alot of attention to our group and gaming commuity we have set up.
the entire community we have built is 264 members and growing - i would love the opportunity to have people hear about us. to be completely honest. wareternal.com come check us out on the net or facebook.
Why should I get Defiance? Is it because I played the Beta? No. Maybe because I am a veteran MMO player? No. Maybe because I have subscribed to Game informer for a long time? No. I will tell you why. Because if I don't win I will kick a pug! Ok not really I can't kick my dog she is too cute. Awww just look at her widdle smushy face!
What I mean to say is:
I will become the very best ark hunter like no one ever was
To gather all the guns
To shoot them is my cause.
I will travel across San Francisco
Shooting far and wide
Each ark I will explore
To find the power that's inside.
DEFIANCE! It will be you and me
To shoot all your guns in my destiny
Defiance you could be my best friend
In an MMO that I can play on PC.
There are more verses but I got sleepy and had to go find a burrito.
I should win because I never win contests! :D Actually, I won 1 digital copy of Darksiders II from GI but my computer wasn't able to run it.
I should win because if I don't, I'll get mad and when I get mad, I smash! Although if I get a chance to be an ark hunter, I'll use my soft and soothing voice and play nice with others in San Fran and share the ark spoils unless they try to steal the loot. Then I'll have to take off my kid gloves and pull out my plasma rifle and scorch and torch the nasty thieves. PS3 for me.
I should win the Xbox 360 Ultimate Edition Because that would be awesome I've never seen the show and have no idea what wanna bee Navi cat things are doing in San Fransisco but it's cool I can dig it. Oh and there's Dodge Chargers I love Mass Media marketing that make no logical sense.End of World=Muscle Car Overload?
To become the best Ark Hunter sounds like a Vault Hunter so I'd just be a Gunzeker and rip open a new hole in the land of Awesomness and with Tiny Tina blow the living hell out of anything that looks at us twice and then I would get Gold Guns cause you can do that. The End!
gameinformer, i don't need to win this nor does any other gamer but I have been very interested in this title and the whole setup with the transmedia with it for a while before it came out. I've watched the first two episodes which I can fairly say I am as hooked to it as I was with Firefly. I don't have money to buy games (work part time, i've saved money only for Halo 4) so if u guys gave me this special edition of a game that is changing the mmo, co-operative, and transmedia scene around the world I would be forever ecstatic and grateful. You guys have been my favorite gaming magazine and newspeople for a couple of years of now (and totally worth 15$ a year) and have been very helpful about which games I should try and would like (come on birthday come faster!!) so thank you guys for always being as ecstatic and informative about games as I've been for my friends.
p.s. If I win Xbox 360 please, defenitly gonna play it as soon as possible so I don't miss out on exclusive episodic content!!!
I want to be awesome like GameInformer and a PS3 copy of Defiance will help me become the greatest ark hunter in the San Francisco Bay Area. I'll keep to the shadows and hunt for treasure like it's going out of style!
Who won? I guess not me... I didn't get an email.
