5 Comments

Rockstar Games has announced a new competition that challenges Grand Theft Auto V PC players to use the Rockstar Editor video editing suite to make a music video.

No Caption Provided

The first ever Rockstar Editor video contest calls on players to create what will be the official music video for the song "Leave" by Wavves, a track featured in GTA V on the new in-game radio station The Lab.

Here's how the band Wavves sums up the track and what it's looking for with a music video:

"The song is about leaving a bad situation. Whether that means a criminal enterprise or activity, or a bad romantic relationship, or something else entirely is up to you to interpret as the music video director. Just have fun with it and don't be afraid to get a little weird along the way."

You can listen to "Leave" through the SoundCloud embed below.

The grand prize winner will receive a G910 Orion Spark Gaming Keyboard and G510 Proteus Core Gaming Mouse. These will come with a laser-engraved Rockstar Editor logo, along with another engraving of your Social Club ID. The winner will also receive a "deluxe prize pack" of GTA V gear, as well as a $100 gift card to the Rockstar Warehouse. Two runner-ups will also receive the prize pack and gift card.

To enter the contest, all you have to do is create a video using the Rockstar Editor (no third-party editing software is allowed), and publish it to the Social Club. You'll need to tag the video with the world "leave" to ensure that it gets entered into the content. Submissions will be accepted through June 8, after which the band Wavves and a Rockstar team will view the videos and determine a winner.

Full details on the submission process and video parameters are available on Rockstar's website.

In addition, Rockstar has announced that everyone who uploads a Rockstar Editor GTA V PC video--any video, not just a music video--to the Social Club by June 8 will receive an in-game t-shirt featuring the logo for the fictional film The Loneliest Robot in Great Britain.

The Rockstar Editor is currently available only on PC, though a version of the toolset is coming to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 as early as this summer. The in-game radio station The Lab, also currently available exclusively on PC, will be released for the console editions sometime later.

Pretty cool, but I wish the prize was that beast of a PC Rockstar gave away a week or two ago. Why give the massive prizes for simply signing up for a contest, and the smaller prizes for something that would take a good amount of time like this? Whoever wins this will basically have a legit music video they directed that will most likely end up getting millions of hits. Should be worth more than accessories and R* giftcards.

Ehhhhhhhhhhh. Sounds like a lot of time and effort for the chance to win something I don't want. Selling them would be out of the question too, since the winner's username is engraved.

Easy. Just record yourself doing heist set-ups and the amount of times you are left at the loading screen.
