You Can Get Paid £20,000 To Be An NPC

You Can Get Paid £20,000 To Be An NPC

Where would we be without NPCs? Non-player characters are the lifeblood of games, and regardless of genre, many would simply cease to exist if it weren't for the idle Pokemon trainers on the connecting routes of the region. Also, where would we be without the mugs asking you if you've ever visited the Cloud District in Skyrim?

While some of us dream of being the Tarnished, Link, or the Dragonborn, there are others who've always aspired to reach the lofty heights of being an NPC. If you've ever wondered what it's like being one of these characters that facilitate and frustrate, then your time has come. Better yet, you can now get paid £20,000 to be an NPC. 

How Can You Get Paid To Be An NPC?

Your time to join the background of a game has finally arrived. As part of a new press push from Xbox Game Pass and Pringles, you could be in with a chance of joining the background of Train Sim World 2 as a Pringles stockist. Oh, and they'll pay you a good salary, too. This is real.

The competition was revealed on the Dovetail Games and Pringles sites, and they confirm that "the winner will be busy at work stacking Pringles inside the world of Train Sim World, while in reality they will be carrying on with their day-to-day life and win £20,000." Blimey. There's also a prize for the runner-up, who'll get a custom Pringles Xbox Series S.

How Can I Apply To Be An NPC?

If you want the chance to become an NPC yourself, all you have to do is explain to the team behind the game why you should be the Pringles refiller in 50 words or less. Once you've got your perfect pitch, post it to Instagram with the hashtag #PringlesStayInTheGame, and tag @Pringles/uki.

 

You have until July 6 to put in your pitch, and from there, they'll develop a 3D model of you to be put into the game if you win. It's a bizarre competition, but we're not complaining for a second. It's a pretty good gig, to be fair.

NPCs are the very heart of many video games. Imagine BioShock without Sander Cohen, and you only have to look at how Fallout 76 fumbled its launch without them to see NPCs are just as important as the MVP. Okay, so while stacking Pringles might not exactly be a part in GTA 6, are you really going to turn down a cool £20k to have your likeness in Train Sim World 2? No, we didn't think so!
