Crackdown, Sumo and Microsoft jump in to Extra Life 2015

3rd November 2015Posted by: Sumo Digital

Saddle up and get ready for 24 hours of madness – Extra Life 2015 is here and we’ll be joining the Crackdown family!

We’re excited to announce that on the 6th of November, we will be joining Microsoft Studios and the rest of the Crackdown 3 family for a 24 hour charity livestream as part of Extra Life 2015.


For those that may not be too familiar, Extra Life is a 24-hour gaming marathon held in support of the Children’s Miracle Network hospitals. With the support of gamers from all across the globe, the event aims to raise awareness and donations for the CMN who help save the lives of children facing everything from asthma and chicken pox, right through to some of the more life changing ailments like cancer and genetic diseases.

We hope you agree with us – this is a truly inspiring event that deserves as much support as possible!


The Crackdown team is hoping to raise over $10,000 dollars over the course of the 24 hours, with every donation  that is pledged going directly to help support children everywhere.

Want to help? Then visit our Extra Life page and join our team. Every single dollar, pound, euro helps the team achieve our goal and of course all proceeds are tax-deductible.


Join us on November 6th at 9am PDT (5pm GMT!) over on Besides ourselves, there are going to be a ton of other developers from across the industry involved, as well as video game celebrities. Just to give you a little tease, we’ve already heard that Microsoft’s very own Phil Spencer will be taking part, as well as players like the renowned Stallion83 – the first player on Xbox Live to reach 1 million gamerscore!

We’ve also heard rumours that there are going to be plenty of giveaways throughout the stream, including t-shirts and tons of other swag. There may even be a chance to win an Xbox One! How cool is that? See our Extra Life page for more information.

What are you waiting for? Join us THIS Friday at 9am PDT over on and help us heal children for Extra Life 2015.
