Millionaire organises Fortnite-style battle royale on private island

Do you enjoy battle royale-style games like Fortnite and PUBG, but want to hunt your fellow players in real life in a brutal fight to be the last man standing? This could be the job for you.

International luxury shopping marketplace has posted an advert seeking someone who can help design the arena for a millionaire's "100-person battle royale inspired event".

Perhaps bored by traditional rich person activities like hunting endangered animals, they've turned their attention to more challenging prey - humans.

Of course, the contestants won't actually kill each other - they'll be using Airsoft guns and touch-sensitive body armour for the three-day event.

"We were approached by one of our customers, who was on the lookout for a private island, for help in setting up the championship," the site says.

"We will also be handling registrations for the event when the time comes. 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 [NZ$194,000] jackpot."

But in order for the event to go ahead, the millionaire needs a gamemaker to help design the arena.

According to the advert, the ideal candidate will likely have experience in large-scale event management and set design. It's not clear if a taste for human flesh is required, but it probably helps.

"Battle royale games have become incredibly popular over the last few years ago and our customer is a huge fan who wants to make the game a reality in the safest way possible," says founder Aaron Harpin.

"If you're a fan of last-person-standing movies and games, it'll be a great opportunity to have a once in a lifetime experience and earn a significant amount of money.

"If the championship is a success this year, it's something he wants to make an annual event moving forward, which is very exciting!"
