Back in April, Bohemia Interactive put together Vigor DLC with the intention to donate all proceeds to an organization fighting on the front lines against COVID-19. The incredible work from the Outlanders resulted in a check being delivered to Brno University Hospital, which was, unfortunately, the target of a cyber-attack recently.
Times are incredibly tough as the world fights against this pandemic. An attack like that couldn’t come at the worst time but, hopefully, Bohemia’s donation will help the workers rally and continue the fight.
Bohemia Interactive and Vigor Players are Helping in the Global Pandemic
Outlanders helped Bohemia Interactive deliver an $11,000 check to the front line COVID-19 fighters.
July 24th, 2020 – Bohemia Interactive is happy to announce that representatives Petr Kolář and Dominik Jicha handed over an $11,000 check to the director of Brno University Hospital, Professor Jaroslav Štěrba, on July 16th. The donated money was raised in a collection that brought together over 7,000 Vigor players on Xbox One.
“We set the price for the mask at $2 so it would be affordable for everyone. We wanted to donate the profit to an organization that helps to fight the virus,” explains marketing manager Dominik Jicha.
“We decided to support a local hospital which fights the virus. The hospital that cooperates with Masaryk University was a main testing spot for this virus and unfortunately, it became a target of a cyber-attack. The choice who the help was pretty obvious. We admire the work and strength of the medical staff in these hard times. We tried to help as much as we could,” adds the project lead Vigor Petr Kolář.
This offering is the result of the Vigor Stay Safe! Charity Pack, which was released in April of this year and was inspired by efforts around the gaming industry to rally to fight against COVID-19.

About Bohemia Interactive
Our story began with our first game, Arma: Cold War Assault released back in 2001. Developed by just a handful of people, this PC-exclusive title became a massive success. It sold well over a million copies, received numerous industry awards, and was praised by critics and players alike. Since then, we’ve grown from a ragtag bunch of garage devs to an international family of over 400 professionals – working on major games like Arma 3, DayZ, Ylands, Vigor, and various other projects. Our ambition: to make games that act as platforms for people to explore, create, and connect. More information is available at www.bohemia.net.
