Jagex has announced that this weekend will feature a Runescape and Ace of Spades 24-hour games charity event to benefit SpecialEffect’s inaugural GameBlast. During the event, developers and community members will play RuneScape via live stream. Jagex will also be conducting in-game events, including the Well of Goodwill that allows players to donate game currency that will later be exchanged for real-world cash. Players can also purchase special event avatar tunics.
“Jagex has long supported numerous charities close to our heart, and we are thrilled to be able to continue our strong relationship with SpecialEffect by taking part in the inaugural GameBlast,” said Neil McClarty, Brand Director for RuneScape. “Our community truly are fantastic, and their generosity during our most recent charity campaign saw hundreds of billions of gold pieces and Bonds converted into real-world cash for good causes, including SpecialEffect. The weekend is shaping up to be big with lots planned including live streams and players recently voted to celebrate with double XP available all weekend, this is one not miss.”
