In addition, IGN is raising money for charity in support of the World Health Organization’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund by hosting two exclusive events during Summer of Gaming. The first event, the pre-show Speedrunner Countdown Challenge, will take place at the beginning of each day of IGN’s showcase and pits the world’s greatest speedrunners in a race against time as they strive to break world records live as part of IGN’s countdown to their daily Summer of Gaming programming. Speedrunner Countdown Challenge will feature in-depth commentary provided by the speedrun charity organization Games Done Quick.


The second event, Animal Crossing: Celebrity Island Tours will include some of the biggest names in pop culture, taking fans inside the world of Animal Crossing: New Horizons to explore guests’ unique islands in a day-long live stream. Animal Crossing: Celebrity Island Tours will include special segments of the viral hit talk show Animal Talking with host and creator Gary Whitta (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, The Book of Eli), which streams on his Twitch channel and can be watched in VOD on his YouTube channel.
