The Last of Us and Uncharted developer Naughty Dog is helping raise money for the ongoing bushfire relief effort in Australia. The studio has announced a special livestream event featuring game director Neil Druckmann and Ellie actor Ashley Johnson.

The pair will play The Last of Us: Left Behind as part of Sony's #Gaming4Life2020 charity campaign. The livestream begins at 10:30 AM PT on Wednesday, February 19. You can watch the livestream through Naughty Dog's Twitch account.

It's not just Naughty Dog that's helping raise money for Australia. The Sony Foundation Australia charity campaign will also see Insomniac Games (Spider-Man) conduct a livestream event on February 20 featuring company founder Ted Price. Additionally, PlayStation games boss Shuhei Yoshida will appear on a stream on February 21. LittleBigPlanet and Dreams developer Media Molecule held its own livestream on February 14.

More details on the Gaming4Life2020 charity stream can be found on Sony's website.

The bushfires in Australia ripped through more than 12 million hectares of land, destroying thousands of homes and killing animals across the country. Estimates say 33 people died as a result of the fires. As of February 13, all bush and grass fires in New South Wales are contained.

Millions of dollars have been donated from individuals and organizations around the world. The Fire Fight benefit concert in Sydney was held on Sunday, featuring acts like Queen and Alice Cooper, and it was a massive success with more than $9.5 million raised.
