Infestation: Survivor Stories (formerly "The War Z")

Giveaway: Win this absurd $2,800 Origin PC courtesy of The War Z

PC Gamer at


For the low, non-existent price of liking us on Facebook and sending us an email, you can be eligible to win a new PC. Courtesy of The War Z creators Hammerpoint Interactive, we’re giving away a fancy rig tricked-out with the laser-etched logos you crave. But more importantly, it’s stuffed with a quad-core Intel Core i7 3770K, a liquid cooling system, a GTX 680, and backed by Origin’s warranty program.

Regrettably, we can’t extend this giveaway to our readers outside the United States. We're also unable, weirdly, to offer the prize to residents of Rhode Island (because the prize’s value exceeds $500). We’re truly sorry that laws get in the way of us offering this giveaway to everyone.

HOW TO ENTER:

“Like” PC Gamer on Facebook, and write an email to contests@pcgamer.com with the subject line “Origin PC giveaway,” and provide your complete name, address, city, state, zip code, birthdate, and phone number. One prize winner will be randomly selected on November 12, 2012.

LIMIT ONE ENTRY PER HOUSEHOLD, REGARDLESS OF FORM OF ENTRY. Use of automated devices or methods of submission are not valid forms of entry. Any attempt at email or other alternative Internet entry is void. Entries become the property of the Sponsor(s) and will not be acknowledged or returned. Please read additional sweepstakes rules and information on the next page.

Check back on Monday for another contest—we’ll be partnering with non-profit gaming clan and community resource Gamersplatoon.com to give away 50 digital copies of The War Z.

Though they have some super expensive, high-end machines, they actually won "best gaming PC under $1500" from Gizmodo (http://gizmodo.com/5928728/the-best-1500-gaming-pc).
