Crystal Dynamics Celebrates Pride with Charity Fundraiser, Giveaways, and Livestream!

Happy Pride!

Pride month is a time to celebrate the LGBTQ+ community’s accomplishments and victories. Today we’re excited to share all the ways Crystal Dynamics will be celebrating Pride throughout the month, and beyond!

Crystal Dynamics x The Trevor Project

From now through the end of June, Crystal teammates and community members are coming together to raise money for The Trevor Project, a crisis hotline for LGBTQ+ youth. Our goal is to raise $5,000, but we need your help to reach it!

If you’d like to participate, you can join the Crystal Community Team on Tiltify now. We’ve made this graphic for you to share that you’ve joined our team, as well! Make sure to tag us, and use #Pride!

You can download this social graphic HERE.

If you’re able to donate, you can do so HERE.

If you don’t have the means to donate, we’d love if you could share our posts throughout the month to help us reach as many folks as possible!

Pride Livestream Extravaganza ft. Rock M Sakura from RuPaul’s Drag Race

We’ll be fundraising for The Trevor Project throughout the month, but on June 24, we’ll be running a day-long livestream featuring an exciting lineup of guests!

  • Kickoff with RuPaul’s Drag Race Contestant Rock M Sakura – Rock M Sakura from Season 12 will help us kick off the extravaganza with a segment where she puts herself in Lara Croft-inspired drag.
  • Artists Draw Live – Pride Edition!
  • Stream Queens Play! – The Drag Queens of Twitch join us to play games together!

Join us throughout the day for fun giveaways!

Marvel’s Avengers – Digital Tie-In Short Story

At the end of June, we’re releasing a free digital tie-in short story that expands on our Marvel’s Avengers lore. In the short story, written by Crystal Dynamics’ own Leilan Nishi, Ms. Marvel sets out to help Wakandan and Dora Milaje trainee Ayo impress her captain (and crush!) Aneka.

The short story will feature three cover variants from legendary Marvel Comics artists, including Paulina Ganucheau, Kris Anka, and Derek Charm. We’ll reveal each cover throughout the month and release them all as free desktop backgrounds for you to enjoy as well! Today we’re debuting the first, from cover artist Derek Charm whose portfolio boasts covers for Marvel, DC, and Star Wars, just to name a few!

Marvel’s Avengers – Identity Flag-Themed Nameplates

This month and every month, we celebrate members of the LGBTQ+ community – real-life superheroes who teach us that being ourselves is in and of itself a superpower.

Available in July and in celebration of our LGBTQ+ players, we’ll be giving away this set of six identity-flag-themed Nameplates that will be permanently free in Marvel’s Avengers! The Nameplates are themed after the intersectional Pride Progress, Bisexual, Lesbian, Trans, Non-Binary, and Asexual identity flags.

Pride is more than a moment, and our team is committed to celebrating the LGBTQ+ community year-round. Happy Pride!
