isn't the only MMO studio ponying up for charity
on October 15th. Funcom
is also partnering with Extra Life for a bleary-eyed 24-hour gaming marathon designed to raise money and awareness for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.
Here's how it works: You'll need to register
with Extra Life and collect pledges from friends, family, co-workers, and anyone else you come across. Then you can join either the Age of Conan
or Anarchy Online
in-game event and try to stay awake. What's in it for you? Well, aside from doing the right thing to help a bunch of kids in need, you might win beta access to The Secret World
. While you're at it, don't forget to follow Massively's own Beau Hindman
(and donate as much as you're able) as he embarks on his own Extra Life marathon.
