Digital Extremes, developers of the runaway hit third-person shooter Warframe, exposed this weekend that it’s running a contest to send out among its dedicated gamers to area– well, sort of. What it’s actually providing is a quite sweet payday, however it’ll depend on the winner if that loan goes towards a journey to the paradises.

The business exposed the contest at Tennocon, a Warframe fan convention in Ontario. It declares to wish to make somebody the very first “ genuine area ninja,” utilizing the term for the in-game Warframes. To go into the contest, you need to play the video game (which is complimentary), and you get extra entries for every single day you visit. Considered that I understand more individuals than I can count who play Warframe consistently, this will most likely be a simple entry for the fans. The guidelines and regs likewise specify Digital Extremes will permit gamers extra chances (whatever those might be) at different points in the next 6 months.

Naturally, it’s not actually a journey to area. The real reward is $250,000 — according to the contest guidelines, this is “the comparable expense approximated by [Digital Extremes] for a journey to area.” (It’s likewise the precise cost of a 90- minute Virgin Galactic spaceflight, so I believe we can recognize where it got that number). However absolutely nothing in the guidelines clearly mentions the winner will be bound to invest the cash on an area jaunt. All it mentions is: “ The Winner should schedule the area journey straight with a service provider if the Winner picks to utilize the money granted for an area journey,” which would appear to suggest you might utilize it for something else.

I do not understand about you, however I can consider numerous things I might invest the cash on long prior to a journey to area struck me. The guidelines likewise specify that the winner is accountable for paying taxes, and the business will not change the cost total up to represent the cost, implying you’ll most likely need to pony up a few of your own money for the cosmic journey. You’ll likewise be accountable for setting up the area flight, which seems like a problem of preparing to me.

You understand what $250 k will likewise supply, Warframe fans? A load of merch. A journey to next year’s Tennocon Heck, you might most likely construct the world’s biggest Warframe cosplay with that quantity of loan– I’m simply stating, if you discover preparing your own spaceflight to be too challenging, do not let it stop you from declaring the reward.

The contest ranges from now up until December 31.
