Ubisoft Challenges the Mighty Quest Community with “Unleash the Chickens” Contest


SAN FRANCISCO – July 30, 2013 – Ubisoft® today announced the second in a series of Open House events for the studio’s upcoming free-to-play PC title, The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot.  The Open House allows anyone that signs up a chance to get a sneak preview of The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot while the game is still in closed beta. 

The second Open House event for The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot will take place from July 30 at 10:00am EST to August 6 at 6:00pm EST. Players will be able to sign up or sign in with their existing Uplay account at www.themightyquest.com, and will be granted immediate closed beta access during the event.

To kick off the Open House event, The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot development team has issued its first Opulencian Edict, known as “UNLEASH THE CHICKENS!” which states, “If the community is able to extinguish the existence of no less than 10 million chickens during the course of the second Open House event – the chicken will be unlocked and become available as a castle defense item for all players in the next game update.  Chickens have been seen congregating in Castle Chicken Shack and Castle Chicken HQ – you must band together to end their feathery, bucket-headed plots once and for all!”  The two chicken castles can be found within the Competition Zone.


The first Open House for The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot, which took place, July 2-5, was a castle-smashing success with more than 71 million gold coins plundered, 41 million life force shards looted and exactly 337,938 heroes falling to the formidable fortifications of their peers.  Players who return for the second Open House event will be able to continue their adventure exactly where they left off as any character power achieved, gleaming gold acquired, epic loot discovered, terrifying monsters unlocked and castle defences constructed were saved for their inevitable return.

In addition to the in-game festivities, players can become eligible to win prizes throughout the event by Liking the official Facebook page at www.facebook.com/TheMightyQuestForEpicLoot, following the official Mighty Quest Twitter account @MightyQuest and by keeping an eye on the news section of the official game website at www.themightyquest.com
