The global, far-reaching games industry has come together to help disseminate key messages from the World Health Organisation (WHO) about COVID-19. A total of 18 game industry leaders including the likes of Zynga, Activision Blizzard, Riot Games, and Unity has launched #PlayApartTogether—an initiative to encourage their vast network of users to follow the WHO’s health guidelines.

The pioneering 18 game industry leaders are joined by additional players including Lenovo Legion, Oculus, Razer, and more.

#PlayApartTogether is bringing special events, exclusives, activities, rewards, and inspiration to some of the most popular games in the world. The initiative encourages users to adopt best practices for their safety and of their families and communities. By incorporating COVID-19 self-protection messages into games, the industry is telling the world: “Wherever you are, whatever game you play, you can make the difference.”
