With Forsaken Shores just over the horizon, what better way to celebrate than by challenging our community to create some incredible Sea of Thieves content? You came out in your droves to do battle with the skeleton crews plaguing the Sea of Thieves and had the stories to share. We saw such a wealth of creative talent take part in our Cursed Sails Challenge, we just had to do it again. Allow me to present our Forsaken Shores Challenge.
Forsaken Shores Challenge
From September 27th to October 24th, we want you to submit your Forsaken Shores-related content to us. We’re announcing our competition a little early to give you a day to plan.
As in our past challenges, we're looking to reward our winning submissions with some fantastic prizes. Our friends over at Corsair have provided us with two Corsair Gaming bundles to give to our winners and we'll even throw in a shiny Forsaken Shores T-shirt. Meanwhile our runners-up will receive the same shiny t-shirt and an exclusive Sea of Thieves journal.
We'll be selecting a total of two winners and two runners-up, comprising one winner and runner-up from each of the following categories:
- Best Forsaken Shores Video - This can be anything you want it to be. As long as it's themed around our Forsaken Shores content update, we want to see it. Be as creative as you like!
- Best Forsaken Shores Fan Art - In our last challenge, we were blown away by the sheer creative talent the Sea of Thieves community demonstrated, and we need to see more. We want to see your paintings, 3D art, sketches, whatever you can create!
We also encourage you to share screenshots of your adventures in The Devil's Roar with us on social channels using the #SoTShot hashtag, but to be in with a chance of winning these fantastic prizes we're looking for video and fan art entries as described above.
As usual, we'll be judging your submissions based on the following criteria: Creativity, Originality, Hilarity, and things that make us go "Oh wow".
There are a few rules you must stick to when creating your content:
- Keep your videos and fan art family-friendly.
Please keep your entries free from bad language and inappropriate content.
- Keep an eye on video length.
Please keep your video submissions to 10 minutes or under.
- Consider full crew participation.
We actively encourage you get your crew involved in this challenge. However, only the account that submits the content will be eligible for the prize.
- Content must have been created by you.
Exactly what it says on the tin. Please don't submit clips or fan art that another pirate has made. The content you submit must be your own.
One winner from each category will win a Corsair gaming set which includes 1x Harpoon RGB Gaming Mouse, 1x K68 RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard, 1x HS60 Surround Stereo Gaming Headset, 1x MM800C RGB Polaris Cloth Edition Gaming Mouse Pad and a Forsaken Shores Foil T-Shirt. One runner up from each category will win themselves a Forsaken Shores Foil T-shirt and a Sea of Thieves Journal.
