Ubisoft wants you to Climb Mount Everest and be the first to play Far Cry 4!

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So Ubisoft wants to you climb mount everest. This might actually break Linus's Highlander highest elevation lan party record. :P

 

Its open to US residents only and Ubisoft will pay for the return trip to Nepal for 14 nights! So anyone entering? I would go to see Mount Everest but meh, been there done that.

The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion.

I've never climbed a mountain before and Mt. Everest certainly wouldn't be the first one I'd attempt.

I wonder what will happen to this "campaign" when somebody falls of the mountain......

EDIT: Or the guy freezes his fingers off and cant play (that would be.....kind of amusing ironic actually)

If it isn't working absolutely perfectly, according to all your assumptions, it is broken.

From what I see, this isn't a LAN party, so it wouldn't beat HighLANder :P

But, alrighty nonetheless. I can't see this happening in the slightest. They're trying too hard to be cool, and it's most likely going to end up with injuries and/or a flump.


I really wish that we'd just make organic hardware already, that grows and adapts to the demands it needs to meet. That way, grannies' computers can be floppy sacks of organicness and the 12 year old Minecrafters will look like the guys that only do bicep curls, and the nerdy programmers will finally have justice, with their body-builder rigs that skipped leg day.

Or even death...seriously, why would they choose Everest? It's one of the most difficult mountains to climb.

I wonder what would happen......

 

For some reason I get the feeling that we wont be hearing from this campaign at all. I think it will suffer from a lack of participants.

... You could die up there for being in that high of an altitude for like 20 minutes, couldn't you?

Depends on the person really. Some can get pretty hard with altitude sickness.

No I think I read somewhere that no human can survive being on the summit for prolonged periods of time

 

I think frostbite kicks in less than an hour that high up

As long as you are well protected frostbite won't be a problem. As long as there is oxygen which they will carry to the top. They should be fine. I have been upto the base camp. It ain't that bad.

This. They need at least 10 people playing to break the record :)
