The UK games industry has come together to offer Christmas shoppers the ultimate wish-list of unique gaming gifts to help raise money for GamesAid, helping disadvantaged and disabled children.
The items included are a Deluxe Edition of Final Fantasy XV with an artbook signed by game director Hajime Tabata, a copy of Football Manager 2017 signed by the Sports Interactive team, a Limited Edition Shrine of Malacath statue from The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and a copy of Star Wars Battlefront: Ultimate Edition with a poster signed by the DICE team. Even more will be added soon, including a copy of Forest of Doom signed by Ian Livingstone and a signed copy of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Legacy Pro Edition.
“Last year, the UK games industry raised a whopping total of £954,000 for GamesAid. Thanks to some incredible donations from our partners, we’re making Christmas extra special with our 12 Days of GamesAid auction” said Ian Chambers, Chair of GamesAid. “Every penny from the auction on our eBay store will go directly into our funding pot, which makes a huge difference to the lives of the young people our charities support. Please show your support and get bidding!”
