Frontier's 24 Hour Charity Livestream - Now live!

Hi everyone!

We’re nearing that time of the year again... wearing cozy jumpers, picking out presents and decorations, celebrating together with family and friends... As per tradition, we’d like to celebrate with you too!

Frontier’s 24 Hour Charity LivestreamOn December 11, 2017 (midday GMT), Ed and Bo will kick off our third annual Charity livestream in honour of SpecialEffect, a wonderful charity which helps disabled people use technology and play videogames. We will be joined by amazing developer guests, do midnight challenges, and get progressively tired and silly in the name of a great cause! Last year, we raised over £46,000 together with a £10,000 target; this year we've gone for a more ambitious £25,000 in the hopes that you'll be there to support us to reach that amazing amount. We will be hosting several activities in the weeks to come and during the 24 hour stream, which will end on December 12 (midday GMT).

We will be streaming on and will upload the entire livestream on YouTube afterwards for archive purposes.
Please read the below sections carefully if you want to join us in spreading the holiday spirit, and also have a chance to receive some amazing and unique prizes!

Blind Charity Auction Coming Soon!
Like last year, we’re also organising a Blind Charity Auction with super unique prizes for you to bid on (with all the money going to SpecialEffect via our Just Giving page).

Keep your eyes peeled on our forums for the Blind Charity Auction coming soon!

Last but not least...
We love that you are helping out by donating to SpecialEffect and supporting us by watching our streams. That’s why we’ve set up a very special Advent Calendar that will run throughout the stream, starting from the campaign amount when the stream goes live on December 11. For each £1,000 we raise during those 24 hours, we will open a Calendar door, and there’s loads of surprises behind them... ranging from silly little dares to big giveaways! So help us reach those milestones!

Thank you for supporting us throughout the past year, with all the updates, our first ever Frontier Expo, streams, and more! Your enthusiasm and love for Frontier is what keeps us ever going, and we couldn’t do it without you. We hope you’re excited to join our celebration, all in support of the amazing charity SpecialEffect. Every little bit helps make a difference in someone else’s life.
We’ll be sure to host an awesome show on December 11, 2017.
