Publishers and developers across the game industry are joining forces to say thanks to medical workers in the UK. The Association for UK Interactive Entertainment – or UKIE – has led a massive giveaway for National Health Service workers through the Games for Carers initiative, which will provide over 85,000 free games to medical staff and their families.
There’s a massive list of participating companies, which you can see in full below, but the heavy hitters include the likes of Activision, Bethesda, Electronic Arts, Sega, and Xbox Game Studios. A UKIE press release says that games are available across a wide variety of age ratings and platforms, whether NHS folks are looking for stuff for themselves or loved ones.
If you’re an NHS worker, you can head to giveaways.keymailer.co/nhs and sign up with your NHS email address to participate in the giveaway. “Games companies of all sizes and players everywhere recognise their exceptional dedication and hope this initiative goes some way to help them to understand how respected and valued they are,” UKIE CEO Dr. Jo Twist says.
