Matt Grandstaff, Bethesda Community Manager, has taken some time out of his busy schedule to inform us that they are hosting a Fallout 3 perk designing contest on the occasion of the upcoming Fallout anniversary. Actually we'd just received this information two minutes earlier by way of our very own Fallout Ranger, but it's nice to see that we're being kept in the loop.
"Celebrating 10 Years of Fallout!
10 years ago the original Fallout was released and forever changed role-playing games. Now is your chance to be a part of Fallout history. We're giving you, the fans, a chance to design one of the perks for Fallout 3!
No, we aren’t going to tell you about any of the perks that are already in Fallout 3. First, that would spoil it, and second, we don’t want to color your ideas with anything we are, or aren’t doing. It’s a clean slate for you. Be creative.
Think of something in the spirit of Fallout. What would you really want your character to be able to do in the game? Don’t worry about any stat requirements or the level you would get it at. Just design a cool perk and we'll fit it in where it could go.
If you win, you'll get your Perk in the game, your name in the game's credits, AND your choice of the grand prize from the Prize Vault: either the PC or the Console flavor.
All entries must be in by 11:59 pm (Eastern time) on October 31, 2007. We'll announce the winner of the contest, and all the other awardees, in November."
There are seperate prizes for PC and console owners, so there should be something there for everyone. So head on over to the contest page and get to work on those perks. You don't want to see someone from NMA get away with your loot do you?
