Over at their EA Play conference, the company have just announced the EA Play To Give charity initiative which aims to “celebrate the global gaming community and give back to organizations fostering a better world.”
Starting today, June 12, EA games will feature challenges, and as they’re played EA will be donating a total of $1 million to five charitable organizations.
Those charities are:
– National Center for Women & Information Technology
These organizations give back to our player communities, support a more inclusive environment in videogames and help support and foster future game-makers. We’re excited to support them!
The challenges launching today are detailed below:
Battlefield 4™ and Battlefield™ Hardline
Earn a Gold Battlepack by providing supplies to your teammates in need. As a community, Battlefield 4 players are challenged with getting a 45 million total re-supply score and Battlefield Hardline players are challenged with getting a 5 million re-supply score from June 12-17. By achieving either of those goals, contributing players will get rewarded with an extra Gold Battlepack via Battlelog.

Players who complete any multiplayer match from June 12-14 can participate in the 3X Score Event, earning triple score and credits.

Subsequent completions will award more shards of Princess Leia, Rey, Barriss Offee or Ahsoka Tano.
