From 12:01 AM PST, October 9 (that’s today!) to 11:59 PM PST, October 9, 2014, you’ll be able to play a huge selection of games on OnLive, completely free, and raise money for charity while you’re at it.
To help Extra Life prepare for its 7th annual Game Day event—a 24-hour gaming marathon to raise money for 170 Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals across North America —OnLive is hosting its own CloudPlay for a Cause day of free gaming on October 9. Again, today.
Anyone who registers for Extra Life and joins OnLive will not only raise money to help sick or injured children, but also be rewarded for their fundraising efforts with a chance to win additional prizes from partners such as Nordic Games, Mad Catz and WikiPad.
“We’re excited to team up with Extra Life and gaming enthusiasts everywhere to truly make a difference for these kids and their families,” said Jeff Wood, captain of OnLive’s Extra Life Team.
“Our hope is to rally awareness and participation for Extra Life in advance of their Game Day marathon by offering free gaming and multiple tiers of rewards to anyone who joins in and games for the cause. And we’re thrilled that our partners are joining forces with us to help maximize our impact for these kids.”
This will be a good stress test for their servers…
