Are you excited for the launch of Dark Souls III on April 12 (and perhaps a little hungry)? If so, you’re probably going to like what the game’s publisher has been cooking up. Starting April 4, Bandai Namco and the folks at the UK restaurant MeatLiquor will challenge fans to eat 20 chicken wings as fast as they can for a chance to win a PS4, Dark Souls III: Collector’s Edition, and the Dark Souls III Prestige Edition.
The catch? The wings are covered in a quarter of a liter of chilli sauce, which was specifically created for the challenge, and are so hot that you’ll have to sign a liability waiver and wear protective gloves to participate. Anyone who braves the contest will win an exclusive t-shirt which appropriately reads: “I SURVIVED,” and is entered into the “Hall of Souls” leaderboard for the MeatLiquor restaurant they competed at.
The fastest time from each restaurant scores a PS4 with the Dark Souls III Collector’s Edition, while the overall winner in the UK will also win the Prestige Edition (which comes with a 40 cm Lord of Cinder statue). If you’re a UK resident and feel like competing, you’ll be able to do so at participating MeatLiquor restaurants until April 12.
“We’re very excited to be partnering with such an exciting food group as MEATliquor, whose famous food, individual approach and adventurous challenges have clearly captured the interest of food enthusiasts all across the UK” said Lee Kirton, PR & Marketing Director of Bandai Namco Entertainment UK.
“Dark Souls 3 challenges players to overcome the odds – and we hope everyone will also enjoy the challenge of overcoming these incredibly hot wings.”
