Rise of the Tomb Raider CE Giveaway and Twitch Stream!
You may remember our Life is Strange Extra Life Charity Twitch Stream from a couple of weeks back. It was a great couple of days and we had a ton of fun playing and discussing Life is Strange with everyone who joined us. We also managed to giveaway a handful of season passes to some lucky viewers.
Well, we're back on Twitch this Friday, November 20 at 6:00pm GMT / 10:00am Pacific with another game and another awesome giveaway you won't want to miss!
We'll start with an unboxing of a sealed copy of the Rise of the Tomb Raider Collector's Edition (which is massive), after which we'll jump into the game and play through the first two or so hours of Rise of the Tomb Raider. Throughout the stream we'll of course be chatting with our viewers and also running a free giveaway in which you'll be able to win a sealed copy of the game's Collector's Edition.
It's really quick and easy to enter the competition - Once we're live on air and you're logged in to a Twitch account, just send the line !raffle via the chat and you'll be in the running to win the Collector's Edition. Please make sure that you've read the terms and conditions posted just under this blog before you enter though!
Unfortunately we are only able to run this competition in the US, Canada (excluding Quebec) and the UK. I know that this will frustrate some of you and we do apologise for not being able to run the competition in more countries at this time. We are planning to host many more such live events via Twitch and are actively looking into adding more eligible countries for future giveaways - we haven’t forgotten or are ignoring you! Nevertheless, even if you't can't participate in the giveaway, do drop by and experience the beginning of Rise of the Tomb Raider along with us.
See you tomorrow (Friday) at 6:00pm GMT / 10:00am Pacific on the Square Enix Twitch channel!
