Hello everyone,

It's that time of the year again, where it's all about giving, sharing, and celebrating. And of course we wouldn't have it any other way then to celebrate this time with you...

Frontier's 24 Hour Charity Stream!


On 17 December, 2018 (midday UTC), Frontier will be starting our fourth annual Charity livestream to raise money for SpecialEffect, a wonderful charity which helps people with physical disabilities use technology and play videogames. It's a charity we are all incredibly passionate about, and last year we raised over £58,000 together with you all - we can't wait to reach more milestones this year and have 24 hours full of fun activities for you to enjoy. We will be hosting several activities in the weeks to come as well as during the 24 hour stream, which will end on 18 December, midday UTC.


Charity Auction

This year we've got another exciting Charity Auction lined up for you; this Auction features unique prizes that you can bid on, like two special Elite Dangerous paintjobs, signed props from our Jeff Goldblum interview earlier this year, or a unique Planet Coaster cushion set (and loads more, don't worry!). We will post separately about all the prizes you can bid on in the coming week. All of the money from the Charity Auction goes to our Just Giving page for SpecialEffect, and you will receive your amazing prize (if you are the highest bidder) after the Charity stream.

Charity Sweepstake

The Charity Sweepstake is the final hour of the livestream (so 11AM UTC on 18 December) and it's the hour during which we give out loads of amazing prizes to our wonderful community. For every £1 you donate to our Just Giving campaign between now and 18 December 11 AM UTC, you get 1 entry into the prize draw (so if you donate £10, you get 10 entries, and so forth). At the end of the stream we will pick winners together on screen, so make sure to donate and enter your email address (the optional field at donation, not as a comment) for a chance to win one of the following amazing prizes:


  • Noblechairs ICON in white
  • PlayStation 4 Pro
  • Xbox One X
  • Thrustmaster (for platform of your choice)
  • Elgato StreamDeck Mini
  • HyperX headsets
  • Corsair HS50, GLAIVE Mouse, MM800 pad
  • Frontier Goodiebag
  • Frontier Game Bundle on the platform of your choice x3 (contains Elite Dangerous + Horizons, Planet Coaster Deluxe, Jurassic World Evolution, and LostWinds 1 + 2)
  • Planet Coaster Vinyl
  • Frontier £25 Merch Design Voucher x3
  • ... and much more!

Milestones!


You are changing lives by donating to SpecialEffect and for that we cannot thank you enough! During the 24 hour livestream, for every £1,000 we reach in donations, we have a milestone activation - this will unlock a special giveaway or some secret Frontier content for you! So do keep supporting the cause during the stream as much as you can, and help us reach our target goal of £30,000!

Streaming Schedule

We've also enlisted the help of some fabulous community content creators to help us raise as much money as possible. During the 24 hours, we have a separate streaming schedule where you can always find someone playing the game or doing charity challenges with their communities. We will post the full roster as soon as possible.

Thank you as always for the incredible and valuable support during the past year; from the launch of Jurassic World Evolution to the community meet-ups and the countless game updates, it means the world to us to have you by our side. We hope you're excited to join our cause and our celebration, and remember that it's all going towards SpecialEffect. Every little bit makes a huge difference in someone else's life.

See you on 17 December, 12PM UTC!

Terms and Conditions

Charity Sweepstake


  • Every full £1 (UK British pounds) donated to the Just Giving page is an entry into the prize draw.
  • If a donation is made in another currency, it will be converted to make sure you receive the correct number of entries into the prize draw.
  • The prize draw will be held on 18 December, 2018 at 11AM UTC as the final part of the livestream. Any donation made between the time this post goes live and 18 December, 2018 11AM UTC will count towards this prize draw.
  • For prize draw tickets to be valid, they must include suitable contact details. Please put your email address in the donation field (not as a publicly viewable comment).
  • Prizes in the Sweepstake may be substituted for one of equal value if, for any reason, they become unavailable, such as going out of stock.
  • Prizes are available worldwide.
  • Where a prize is not deliverable by a specific merchant, vouchers may be offered for a suitable retailer instead. Specifically for the Gaming PC, Xbox One X and PlayStation 4 Pro.
  • Prizes will be shipped in January 2019, after all the winners' addresses have been collected. Game codes will be sent as soon as possible after the stream concludes on 18 December.
 
So glad you are supporting this amazing charity again this year. Added bonus for me is that the 18th is my birthday and so I have holiday, so I can watch loads of the livestream (and not have it minimized on my work pc desktop :D)
 
Special Effect Decals for donors?

I have mine on 2 accounts but more people need to fly with an exclamation mark. ;)


P.S. To quote rootsrat: hurray for the 24h live stream! \o/
 
Yay. That will be fun!

Last year I managed about 12 hours. I'm going to try and get better this time. Might actually get a very boring shift at work, this year, which should help. :D
 
It would be nice to see this now, especially the milestone reveals/rewards :D
I've put together a timeline of the main events during the 2018 charity livestream, including the milestone rewards. Apologies for any names I've got wrong, mistakes, missing bits etc. - let me know and I'll edit the post.

I couldn't find Milestone 18000 - it was hit at the beginning of the pub quiz and Ed said it would happen later, but the next one I found was for 19000. If anyone has a timestamp I'll add it to the list.
Brilliant! Thanks so much for doing that. I missed quite a lot so this is great, I can just dip in to some of the best bits.
 
Just watched the show afterwards..

That Chante(?) character needs to stop screaming and yelling, my ears wont stop bleeding.. :D

Otherwise, good entertainment as always. Thanks Fdev!
