If you’re an NHS worker and you’re a gamer, you’re in for a real treat!

As a thank you to those hard working people in the NHS, The Games for Carers initiative has been set up to give something back during the well deserved off time from helping those caught up amongst the COVID-19 pandemic.

Videogame companies such as Bungie, Codemasters, Media Molecule, Rare and Bethesda, as well as many independent studios have come together to offer some enjoyable relief during their downtime.

The Games for Carers project is a collaboration between UKIE – The Association for UK Interactive Entertainment and Keymailer, a promoter of videogames to up and coming online influencers. The project has over 85,000 games on offer.

NHS staff that wish to participate need only go to the Games for Carers website [HERE] and give their name and NHS email address, and they will be contacted with the process of what games are available and how to claim them.

There are a few terms to consider:

Availability: at the time of writing these terms, over 85000 games were available in this giveaway.
