Majesco Announces Million Dollar 'Advent Rising' (Xbox/PC) Contest

by Rainier on April 26, 2005 @ 1:28 p.m. PDT

Advent Rising is a 3rd person, action/adventure game presented in a stunning cinematic format that delivers an unprecedented variety of addictive game play experiences. Built on the Unreal Warfare Engine, it offers precise, refined play-dynamics with action-packed adventure and style, wrapped in a visually imaginative universe. Advent Rising is akin to a fast-paced action movie where the player is swept up in a continuously evolving series of sequences and events.

“A game of such epic proportions requires a promotion of equal stature and a million dollar play and win contest is certainly that,” said Ken Gold, vice president of Marketing for Majesco. “We are excited to team with Microsoft on such an innovative promotion in which we watch gamers compete to become a millionaire and win tons of other great prizes via Xbox Live.”

$1,000,000 – And How to Get It

The contest commences June 9, a week after the launch of Advent Rising and is limited to the first 500,000 copies of the game. Consumers who purchase specially marked packages of Advent Rising will receive a free, two-month subscription to Xbox Live. Then, once a week for six weeks, an “Easter egg” in the form of the letter ‘A’ will be downloaded via Xbox Live and hidden within a level of the game. Majesco will distribute clues as to which level the icon resides in and then the race is on.

Once the egg is found, consumers will be given a code and prompted to log into the contest website using their Xbox Live Gamer Tag. The first person to do so is that week’s winner. The contest is open only to US and Canadian residents (void in MD, VT and in Quebec) who are 13 years or older. The contest ends August 15. Complete contest rules can be found online at beginning May 31.

Hundreds of Weekly Prizes

Over the course of six weeks, players can also compete for cash and prizes, with one Grand Prize winner receiving $1,000,000. Hundreds of great prizes include:
Six weeks of cash prizes totaling $10k, $20k, $30k, $40k, $50k, and the Grand Prize of $1,000,000;
12-month Xbox Live subscription cards from Microsoft;
SoBe refrigerator and a one-year supply of SoBe drinks;
SoBe guitars, golf bags, MP3 players, and more;
Advent Rising strategy guides from Brady Games;
Officially licensed Xbox controllers from Radica.

Developed by GlyphX Games, Advent Rising is scheduled to ship May 31 for the Xbox and for PC on June 30.
