The big telco, who has partnered with Microsoft
to bring the subscription-based Xbox All Access
to our shores, is looking for a Telstra Game Reviewer
to review 10 games at $2,500 AUD a pop. Each video will be a written and video deal, running from June to November, exploring the Xbox Game Pass
As per the description.
For this project, we’re looking for an enthusiastic and knowledgeable gamer. You’d better know your Minecraft from your Mass Effect, your Halo from your Hollow Knight, and your Gears from your GTA. If you can spot a Warthog from miles away and you know the fastest way to hit bedrock, we want to hear from you.
This is a one-of-a-kind paid opportunity for you to create up to 10 video and written reviews for us from June to November, exploring the long list of games from Xbox Game Pass and getting hands-on with some of Telstra’s other upcoming gaming products.
We know gaming can be even more fun with a crew – and so can this! The successful applicant is free to feature other members of their household if they want to join in, including flatmates, couples living together or even an entire family (providing the applicant is a parent or guardian of any minors featured).
Applications are now open (head here
for details) with those looking to apply having to provide a video review with a supporting 300 word article "telling us about their favourite parts of the game". Telstra is moving pretty quick on this with applications closing at 11:59PM AEST on Wednesday May 20 - with the first review set to go live in June.
As our own Joab Gilroy knows
, this isn't Telstra's first videogame rodeo, as the ISP ran GameArena in the 2000s - a place for excellent reviews and coverage backed up by stable low-ping servers for a number of high-profile multiplayer games.
