Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice releases later this month and South Africans have a chance to win not just the game, but a limited edition PlayStation 4 Pro and a blacksmithing class.
This is all being organised by local distributor Megarom who have put together a rather appealing package for anyone looking to enter.
Before we look at the prizes in detail, head on over to the dedicated site to enter. All you need to do is leave your details between now and 18th April.
Depending on your view of things, the big ticket item here is a PS4 Pro that’s been made to look like it’s made out of wood, complete with imitation Shōji and a controller to match. A copy of the game on the console is, of course, included.
Apparently only 40 of these consoles exist, so it’s pretty exciting that we’re getting one in the country, even if it can only be had by chance.
If you’re wondering what could top that, well it’s a blacksmithing class with Neels van den Berg. You may have heard that name before as this content creator on YouTube creates replicas of videogames items but, instead of 3D printing as we usually feature, it’s in steel.
If that sounds like something you’d like to get your hands on, there are ways to get more entries aside after putting in your contact details.
Anyone who enters the contest and leaves your full name in the “referred” section will net you another entry.
An extra entry can also be had by subscribing, liking and commenting on van den Berg’s videos about making the Mortal Blade from the game.
Finally (and this is one we really don’t recommend) your amount of entries will be doubled if you pre-order Sekiro from BT Games. While From Software has a generally stellar reputation, you just never know with new games and we always urge people to wait for initial reviews before spending any money.
As mentioned earlier, the entry form and more information about the contest can be found on the official site.
For anyone wanting to learn about shaping steel or anything in that domain, you don’t need to win a contest to do so. South Africa has many makerspaces where you can do that at your leisure and you can read about our visit to one a few years back right here.
