The world is currently trapped in a bind. With the COVID-19/coronavirus pandemic, much of what we are used to is no longer possible. However, that does not mean we will just roll over. In fact, with Singapore game retailers like Qisahn doing their part during this crisis, the team here at Geek Culture wants to do ours as well.
Partnering up with the good folks over at 2K Games, Activision Blizzard, Bandai Namco Entertainment, Bethesda, Capcom Asia, Electronic Arts (EA), Microsoft, Raw Fury and Ubisoft, we want to make sure you will have plenty to be occupied with during quarantine.
So we will be giving out a grand total of 138 digital codes across the following 37 PC titles, worth over US$5,000 (on Steam, Battle.net, Bethesda.net, Epic Game Store, Microsoft Store, Origin and Uplay). Oh, and did we mention that this is a global giveaway?
Our objective here is to help gamers who might otherwise be impacted by what has been happening. Or maybe you have a gamer friend who needs a quick pick-me-up. Playing games has brought many of us some measure of relief, calm and peace, which is what some of us need right now, among other things. When we reached out to our contacts across the game industry, we were aiming for 10 codes to offer to a few players, but the response we got was overwhelming, as publishers graciously offered more than what we expected, to help the community.
Which is why it’s important that we make sure that these games reach the right players. More details can be found at the end.
