Real-life Battle Royale with £100,000 jackpot taking place on private island

A tycoon is searching for somebody to enable them to plan a 100-man fight royale-motivated occasion to occur on a private island.

Battle Royale games are gaining major popularity in the last couple of months with the likes of Activision and EA jumping on the bandwagon.

A very wealthy person, who now remains anonymous, has had the idea to create a 100-person battle royale event on a private island but needs a little help from a talented game maker who can help the organizers design the arena.

Fear not though, the competition won't be using actual weapons.

A witness told CNN affiliate WCCO that the child's mother was screaming that someone had thrown her child from the balcony. A 24-year-old male is being held at the Bloomington Police Department in relation to the incident.

The millionaire has roped in the website Hush hush to find a "gamemaker" who can design the battle arena.

Lucky for everyone, the Battle Royale weaponry will be compiled of Airsoft guns and ammo, with touch-sensitive body armor.

The millionaire is planning to create a "last person standing" championship with a £100,000 jackpot, to run towards the end of the year.

The event will take place across three days on a private island with each day's fighting lasting 12 hours, and the final survivor walks away with £100,000 ($130,660). The stakes are high, since the victor gets a jackpot of £100,000, and we'll see the competition played for 12 hours each day. Like your regular video game battle royale, the last person standing wins, and in this case, they win £100,000 ($140,351 AUD). The design contract will pay £1,500 daily with an expected six week duration, totaling £45,000. Combatants will be provided with food, camping gear, and other necessary equipment for the night. "If the championship is a success this year, it's something he wants to make an annual event moving forward, which is very exciting!" said HushHush founder Aaron Harpin. However, to get there, our concierge team needs some help to make it a reality. While this sounds cool and all, I'm now wondering how the designers will shove microtransactions into this. They are looking for a talented gamemaker who can help organize the three-day event.
