The entirety of the money raised will be donated to Special Effect, a U.K.–based charity which uses special technology to enhance the quality of life for people who have severe physical challenges due to a disability, traumatic injury, or a chronic illness. The gaming-focused charity works closely with the games industry around the world – but particularly in Europe – for most of its funding.

Special Effect took to Twitter to thank the donors, and shared a minute-long clip that explained how the charity organisation works. It noted that the donation is “invaluable in making up our funding shortfall due to COVID-19”. Check out the clip below.

Mediatonic later noted that its artists have started to work with the auction winners on their custom skins, and confirmed that it will “ include 4 costumes as a special thank you to the amazing people that made this possible”.
