The team at Frontier Developments put on quite a show on December 17th with a bit of livestreaming. But the Elite: Dangerous crew wasn’t just showing off a patch; no, it was a charity stream running for 24 hours straight, with money raised going to supporting SpecialEffect. That’s a charity devoted to helping people with special needs get support to play video games, so you can imagine that it’s a subject near and dear to the hearts of the team.
The stream raised a grand total of £43,000 for the charity, along with giving away items to the audience and putting up several bits of memorabilia up for charity auction. Our congratulations go out to the team for their effort and success at raising money for a worthy cause. There’s also a minor update with a variety of fixes for bugs that’s on the live servers today, so the team’s even giving back to its most devoted fans.
We streamed for 24 hours straight. We laughed, we cried and laughed some more. But most importantly, we raised an INCREDIBLE £43,000 for @SpecialEffect. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for helping disabled gamers get back in the game! #FDEVCharityStream #CharityTuesday pic.twitter.com/6tfCyGFil6
