London, UK: This month, Bossa Studios plans to conclusively prove whether Surgeon Simulator 2 is more challenging thatn real surgery. The studio has partnered with real surgeons to bring the skills and experience of medical professionals face to face with the chaos of Surgeon Simulator 2. On Thursday October 15th, Bossa is supporting a 24hr charity livestream at Grimsby Hospital where a variety of medical staff will compete among themselves in a speed-heart transplant contest. Closely followed, on Saturday 17th, the studio will pit IRL doctors against gaming influencers in a live Twitch showdown, to see if real medical skills beat gaming ones.

Bossa Studios is a proud supporter of North Lincolnshire NHS Foundation Trust’s 24 Hour Charity Stream. Beginning on the 15th October at 10AM BST, staff at the Diana, Princess of Wales Hospital will be involved in a variety of (virtual) medical challenges. These include battling it out to perform the fastest heart transplant within the most advanced multiplayer surgery game ever made - Surgeon Simulator 2. The line-up of talent includes Cardiologists, Physiologists, Radiologists and no doubt numerous other something-ologists. The Stream can be viewed at: http://bossa.games/NHSstream

The testing continues over the weekend as ‘Pro’ gamers RT Game and Call Me Kevin go up against US-based OBGYN Dr. Danielle Jones (aka. MamaDoctorJones) and UK GP Registrar Dr. Idris Morgan (aka. Doctor Mim). The 100% medically appropriate stream will begin at 7PM BST on Saturday 17th October. Watch it live at: http://bossa.games/StreamerVsSurgeon

Bossa Studios has also announced that it is offering Surgeon Simulator 2 free to National Health Service (NHS) workers in the UK as part of its new NHS: National Handout of Surgeon Simulator initiative - or NHSSNHSS for short. Doctors, nurses, surgeons and all other NHS workers with an active NHS email will be able to claim a free copy of the game on PC by visiting http://www.nhs.surgeonsim.com.

The vastly expanded sequel to Surgeon Simulator, which was released in 2013, Surgeon Simulator 2 takes the frenzied gameplay and stitch-bursting laughter of the original and gives it an extra shot of adrenaline. Players are no longer a lonesome hand floating above a patient. Instead, up to 4 players can explore (or aggressively redecorate) an entire medical facility as they inject, amputate and transplant their way to victory. Surgeon Simulator 2 is out now on the Epic Game Store and available for £19.99 / $24.99.
