The coronavirus pandemic is sweeping the globe and there doesn’t appear to be an end in sight. Today, Ubisoft announced a month-long series of offers, trials, and discounts as part of the global efforts to support people staying at home. According to the company, “this initiative provides people opportunities to have fun with family and socialize with friends even as they practice social distancing from the safety of their homes.”
Ubisoft is also working with the game community to help combat coronavirus and support those affected. On March 28, the company took part in a Twitch Stream Aid. The company pledged $150,000 to the fund alone, and have since given $2.8 million globally.
Senior Vice President of Marketing and Consumer Experience said the following.
During these unprecedented times, video games have a role to play in bringing people around the world joy, comfort, and togetherness. We hope that this initiative and those we’re seeing from the video game community will encourage people to play their part and play at home.
Hopefully, everyone will stay at home as much as they can during these trying times. Together, we’ll overcome this too.
