Thanks to Futuremark Games Studio, we can provide you with a truly global Christmas gift: 10 lucky registered BSN* users will win a Steam license key for Shattered Horizon. The game surprised every staff member here at BSN*, given its superbprice/performance ratio and the fact that in my personal opinion, this is the first real 3D game since Descent series.

The only thing you need to do is register to become a member of Bright Side of News*. You have to have a valid e-mail address to register, and that is also the way how lucky winners will receive the key for the gaming surprise of the year, Shattered Horizon.

If you are already registered user here on Bright Side of News*, you are already entered. On Christmas day, December 25, 2009 at 12:00 GMT, the computer will randomly pick 10 registered BSN* members and we’ll publish a story on the site naming those 10 winners. If a user does not claim his/her award, we will run the number generator once more and update the article with according winners. You have time up until December 31, at 12:00 GMT to claim the award.
