Epic Games founder Tim Sweeney donated $15 million to conserve 7,000 acres of North Carolina land. The easement permanently protects the Box Creek Wilderness area in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains from development for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. It is part of Tim Sweeney’s ongoing effort to safeguard parts of the 40,000 acres in North Carolina he started purchasing in 2008.
In international good news, the development studios for World of Tanks, Verdun 1914, 1979 Revolution, and Democracy 3 are donating some of this month’s sales to War Child, a charity for children in conflict regions like Afghanistan and Central Africa. Each of the studios will be offering special themed charity DLC or will hold sales for their games in support of the charity during the War Child Armistice Fundraiser.
