Bungie, Ubisoft, and Activision raise money for Australian bushfire relief

Games publishers and players alike are trying to help with the crisis in Australia, from indie developers to the makers of Call Of Duty.
The apocalyptic scenes of out-of-control bushfires in Australia have brought out the best in video game makers, with several them pledging money and helping to raise more.
Ubisoft has already donated the equivalent of £23,000, after fans suggested they create special in-game items that could be bought by players and used to raise money.
As Ubisoft points out though, that takes time and so the cash donation is to tide things over until the in-game items can appear.

The bushfire crisis has devastated communities across the nation and the scenes of loss are heartbreaking.

Activision is following a similar approach, donating all proceeds from its Outback Pack DLC to the wildlife crisis fund. Anyone that’s already bought the DLC will automatically have their purchase diverted towards the relief funds.
The idea first came from fans, who made the suggestion to Activision on Reddit. Similar suggestions have also been made for fund-raising in-game items in Apex Legends and Overwatch , although create a brand-new skin does take time so it’s unclear if that’ll happen quickly enough.
Meanwhile, Bungie has gone the simpler route and will be selling a limited edition Destiny 2 T-shirt from 16 January. The first half of all profits from it will be donated to WIRES, Australia’s largest wildlife rescue organisation, and the other half to the New South Wales Rural Fire Service.

It’s not just the big publishers though, as indie company Cryptivo, makers of The Universim, will be donating all revenue from its online store and 30% of its Steam sales for the next two months.
Meanwhile, indie developer Jez Kabanov from New South Wales will be donating all money from game Bushfire Rescue Tactics, which has been created to raise awareness about bushfires and how to prevent them.
