The amazing people at Bethesda ANZ yesterday announced a special partnership with Game on Cancer™, an initiative of the Australian Charity, Cure Cancer. We love stories where gamers are doing good for their community, and what better time than in the lead up to the festive season. The event will see Bethesda ANZ staff team up with a variety of local and global talent, including UFC middleweight Rob Whittaker and Rich Lambert, Creative Director of The Elder Scrolls Online.
The Bethesda Holiday Special stream will commence from 10am AEDT on December 16th over at the official Bethesda Twitch channel where the Bethesda ANZ team and guests will set forth on some grand adventures in Skyrim Anniversary Edition, The Elder Scrolls Online: Blackwood and Fallout 76. Whilst gaming will be running hot, more importantly, the team will be raising funds to support the important work of Cure Cancer. The charity funds early-career cancer researchers across all areas of cancer research.
The Bethesda Holiday Special stream will run for six hours and there will be more than just gaming on the show with developer interviews, cooking challenges and prop making. The segments include:
- The Elder Scrolls Online Devs and Community Chatting all things ESO
- The Elder Scrolls Online New Life Festival Cooking Show with the ANZ Community Managers
- The Elder Scrolls Online Mates of Oblivion Community Session
- Rob Whittaker plays ‘Skyrim Anniversary Edition’
- Skyrim Anniversary Edition Creation Club Showcase
- Hench and Scrap Foundry showcase their Sanguine Rose prop creation
- Fallout 76 Wasteland Cooking Challenge with the ANZ Community Managers
“We are thrilled to partner with the amazing team at Bethesda ANZ and feature their Holiday Special Stream as a part of our Game On Cancer™: Holiday Spectacular to help fund crucial cancer research”, said Shane Bailey, Head of Gaming & Streaming at Cure Cancer. “Our biggest hope is that we can provide enough funding to young cancer researchers, whose ground-breaking ideas may hold the key to a cure. We’re aiming to raise $100,000 this December for vital cancer research and I’m confident that the support of the passionate and generous Bethesda community will help us achieve that goal.”
