A guide on how to join is available on thatgamecompany’s YouTube channel.
Players can also watch a stream of the historic gaming event at the same time on thatgamecompany’s Twitch channel. Sky kids can use the hashtag #thatskyworldrecord on social media to engage with the Sky community before, after and during the event.
