Millionaire Wants To Make IRL Battle Royale On A Private Island

Paintball championships are already a thing, so it only makes sense that someone would take the battle royale idea and give it a real-life twist.

The battle royale on a private island was first spotted over at Ladbible by an alumni from our British cousins, and notes that the event would be held over three days.

It's hosted on Hush Hush, a luxury marketplace that advertises things towards people with too much money. On that site is a listing for a designer for a "100 person battle royale inspired event", with the contract weighing in at just over $71,000 and around $2371 for each of the days the game is operational.

The current plan, according to the listing, would see competitors equipped with Airsoft guns, armour and ammo, with food and camping gear provided for all contestants:

Contestants will be provided with Airsoft guns, ammo and touch-sensitive body armour for a three-day event. The ‘last person standing’ will win a £100,000 jackpot. As it is currently planned, the event is intended to last three days, with 12 hours of competition each day. Competitors will then camp for the night. Food, camping gear and all the necessary equipment will be provided.

It's basically just a giant paintball competition, so if you knew someone who owned a large enough piece of land this could totally happen. And hey, the people who make Zedtown happen could probably design a wide-scale set like this. But if you want to put your hand up for six weeks of work designing a real-life battle royale, there's more details here.

    That would be pretty cool. Would they just leave pistols and rifles and stashes of paintballs lying around on benches and in sheds and such? I am intrigued.

    And now everything Battle Royale comes full circle with a bunch of people being taken to an island for a Last Man Standing fight to the death. Only with less death, and no exploding collars.

      Dude who wrote the original BR must be kicking himself for not having somehow come with the idea of making it into a game. The whole genre is a massive money-maker.
