NetEase has revealed an upcoming charity battle in its game Immortal Conquest which will ultimately raise $15,000 for charity.
The event sees two factions, Nerds and Veterans, battling to conquer the in-game city of Delphi from October 21st to December 8th. The winning faction will then vote on which charity the $15,000 will be donated to.
The Nerds faction is headed up by YouTuber and rapper Dan Bull, while the Veterans have Stack-Up CEO Stephen Machuga as its ambassador. Stack-Up is a video game charity supporting military veterans, which NetEase has also donated $30,000 to.
As well as the ambassadors, the developer is recruiting a number of Chief Officers for each faction. Players with previous experience leading alliances successfully are encouraged to contact NetEase to nominate themselves for the role.
Immortal Conquest launched at the start of 2017 and has gone on to moderate success. It was highlighted by NetEase as one of its international successes in its Q2 FY17 financials.
The developer ranked fourth in our top 50 mobile game developers of 2017. It is currently gearing up to launch one of its biggest games, Onmyoji, in the West later in 2017.
