“Like so many, the SIDE team has been horrified by the humanitarian crisis resulting from the war in Ukraine. We want to raise funds to help the millions of people whose lives have been devastated in the past months, and who will be dealing with the effects for years to come,” said Sini Downing, head of studio, SIDE London.   

During the livestream, viewers will be encouraged to donate to the relief efforts.

“As part of the PTW family of brands, SIDE works every day with voice actors who bring life to the beloved characters in award-winning games,” Downing continued. “Our goal is to combine the global love of games and the talent in them, together in a powerful event to benefit Ukraine.”

The event will be livestreamed across IGN’s channels on May 7, with voice actors from around the world also contributing performances.
