Rockstar have just announced the first video editor contest for Episodes from Liberty City, entitled "Base Jumping Extreme Film Festival".
The lucky winner will receive an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 470 graphics card, along with a Rockstar prize pack of limited-edition Grand Theft Auto and Episodes from Liberty City collectibles. Two runners up will also receive Rockstar prize packs.
In honor of the recent release of Episodes from Liberty City for PC, and with it, all new The Ballad of Gay Tony and The Lost and Damned channels at Social Club TV - we present the first in a series of Episodes from Liberty City Video Editor Contests: "The Base Jumping Extreme Film Festival".
Strap on a parachute in The Ballad of Gay Tony and use the PC version's in-game suite of video editing tools to make the most creative contest entry clip you can. A balls-out short action film? A base jumping commercial? An aerial music video? A creative montage of parachute stunts? We know you’ll amaze and surprise us as always.
The possibilities are endless. Just make sure it's at or under 5 minutes in length, and somehow, someway – parachuting or base jumping features prominently.
You should be aware that the contest is void in certain countries and US states. See the official rules and eligibility page for more details.
To enter, you'll need to upload your video to Social Club TV using the Episodes from Liberty City PC in-game video editor anytime between today and May 14th, inclusive - and make sure to use the tag "base-jumping-contest". Go to the Base Jumping Extreme Film Festival channel page at Rockstar Social Club TV to watch video entries as they start flowing in (and vote on the ones you like the best).
Rockstar will then pick the clip that wows us the most, looking at editing skills, user ratings, and overall creativity.
Rest in peace.
All of us here at Rockstar were saddened to learn this morning of the news that Keith Elam, professionally known as Guru of Gang Starr, has succumbed to cancer after a long battle.
Guru was truly a hip-hop legend, one of the genre's greatest voices, and we are eternally grateful for his contributions to the Grand Theft Auto series as the character 8-Ball.
Our condolences to the entire Elam family, to our good friend and his long-time Gang Starr collaborator DJ Premier, and to everyone else who had the pleasure of knowing or working with the man.
"Rockstar North went above and beyond to create an epic finale for fans of the series," said Sam Houser, Founder of Rockstar Games. "We hope our fans enjoy these two episodes as much as we've enjoyed making them."
Episodes from Liberty City is released on PS3 and PC on April 13th in North America, and April 16th in Europe.
