Insomniac Games is auctioning off an Xbox One console signed by Insomniac Games to help its former intern and Epic Games artist Ana Kessel who was involved in hit-and-run car accident.

Kessel, who was hospitalized in November after being struck by an unlicensed driver, lost a leg through amputation. Kessel's friends and family are also currently raising money to help pay for Kessel's medical bills. To date, more than $57,000 has been raised through the campaign to help offset medical bills and expenses.

The new console was donated by Microsoft and is available to be shipped worldwide for free. The console will ship with physical Day One Editions of Ryse: Son of Rome and Forza Motorsport 5. At the time of writing, bids for the console package rest at $800.

In November, Epic Games auctioned off three signed Gears of War replica Lancers to help the artist. The Lancer replicas went for $1,200.00, $910.00 and $890.00. All proceeds from Epic's and Insomniac's auctions will be donated to Kessel's recovery.
