First and foremost, I want you to close your eyes and pretend a Borderlands Psycho and an Elder Scrolls Mudcrab are holding hands because that’s the ideal header image I wanted but could not have. And it’s a nice mental image to have because too often we’re bombarded with console wars and discourse over which company is better than another when instead we could be watching these cool companies combine to do extra cool things.
Like right now!
On February 15th in an unprecedented initiative from both companies, they’ll be playing each other’s games on their respective Twitch channels! That’s right, 2K will be playing Skyrim, while Bethesda will be trying their hand at Borderlands 3!
Helping them along will be a wide variety of streamers, all donating to the Australian Red Cross to help those impacted by the fires that have swept our nation.
Both companies will start by playing Skyrim together, as a sort of fun bonding activity, with the streams being able to be watched on both the Bethesda and Borderlands Twitch channels. Money can also be donated right now through their joint Tiltify campaign.
