Mobile games advise players to stay at home during COVID-19 pandemic
As reported by BBC, Rebellion, Codemasters and Activision Blizzard will display a message encouraging players to stay at home in order to "save lives."

While families are practicing social distancing, many have turned to online entertainment to pass the time. Streaming services like Netflix, Disney+ and HBO Now are getting activity spikes through the roof, as other businesses suffer revenue losses, with phone manufacturers in particular experiencing their lowest sales in 10 years.

Many corporations took various measures to try and help both their clients and people affected in general. Apple donated millions of dollars to the US and worldwide, and even more masks to groups directly fighting the virus. The Uber Eats app recently introduced an option to donate in support of your favorite restaurants, and Google released reports based on anonymous location data collected from Google Maps, in an attempt to help organizations fight the coronavirus spread.

Makers of popular mobile games Candy Crush, Sniper Elite 4 and Farm Heroes Saga among others will do their own deed to help prevent the spread, by encouraging players to remain at home. Activision Blizzard has also donated 230 advertising screens to be used to display coronavirus information, BBC also reports.

Rebellion, makers of Sniper Elite, will be showing a coronavirus-related screen before gameplay begins, where they usually promote their other products.
