The Australian bushfires, which erupted towards late 2019 and continued through the early weeks of 2020, had a significant impact on wildlife, human property, and even personnel. According to the reports from NPR as of January 6. an estimated 1.5 million acres of forest and wildlife were affected heavily, while at least 25 confirmed dead.
Activision's Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is one of the most successful entries in the coveted first-person franchise to date. The studio announced they will donate all proceeds from the Outback Relief pack to aid Australian authorities and those affected. It offers purely cosmetic items, including the Bushranger operator skin, Sniper Rifle Charlie, a koala charm, a free battle pass tier skip, and other content as well.
Our thoughts go out to all those affected by the bushfires in Australia.
100% of Activision’s net proceeds from previous & future purchases of the Outback Relief pack through Jan 31 will be donated to help provide aid towards the devastating fires. #AustraliaBushfires
All previous and future purchases through January 31st will get donated, so everyone who already bought it doesn't have to do it again. The pack is available for 1800 COD Points, which is roughly around $20. Activision isn't the first major gaming studio to lend a helping hand. Bungie already created a special design t-shirt available for sale, with all proceeds generated going to WIRES and NSW Rural Fire Services. For now, we don't know where exactly Activision intends to give their money to, but as long as it is for a good cause, everywhere helps.
Considering the pack's Australian theme and the magnitude of the Call of Duty franchise, this is a class act from Infinity Ward and Activision. We hope the world recovers from this catastrophe.
