The likes of EA, Xbox, Konami and Codemasters are all pulling together for the new Games For Carers initiative, which will offer more than 85,000 free titles to download across a range of platforms and genres.
The UK games industry body Ukie has organised the new move alongside marketing firm Keymailer as a way to allow National Health Service workers to alleviate some stress in any downtime they may have.
Other companies getting involved include the likes of Jagex, Media Molecule, Team 17 and many more.
Ukie CEO Jo Twist said:
“The UK games industry has been proud to play its part in conveying these vital public health messages during this national emergency.
“Now our community has united again to say thank you to the truly extraordinary people who make up the NHS frontline team.
“Games companies of all sizes and players everywhere recognise their exceptional dedication and hope this initiative goes some way to help them to understand how respected and valued they are.”
Ukie later clarified on social media:
“Games are added randomly each day over the next week to keep it fair. It’s one game per person only due to the demand, so take your time to pick.”
