Our Extra Life marathon begins in less than two weeks and we couldn’t be more excited! With your help, we’ve already raised over $3000 in donations and have nearly 300 team members! Thank you!

We’ve got an incredible list of guest streamers that include BioWare with Dragon Age: Inquisition, Double Fine with Massive Chalice, Bethesda with The Evil Within, and so much more!

But wait, there’s more! We’ve updated the list of ways participants and donors can win some pretty great things during the Extra Life marathon. You can find a list of various participant and donor contests here, while you can find out how you can win a gaming PC while playing for a good cause here.

We’ll update you soon on the list of times for our guest streamers, so hang tight, or game on for Extra Life!
