The indie WW1 game Verdun is offering its players to both remember the atrocities committed during The Great War as well as help contribute and help those in modern conflicts, this Christmas.
The “Christmas Truce” DLC, which is available on Steam for £1:99, aims to recreate the 1914 truce along the Western Front which has become one of the most famous events of the war.
Players can walk the expanses of No Man’s Land, playing football with their enemies, take part in snowball fights and even write and send back Christmas Cards to loved ones.
The DLC map will be available only from December 16-January 2 2017 and any players that take part in the event will receive a special Christmas Truce medal to help commemorate the day of peace. On top of that, all net-income of the DLC will be donated to War Child UK in an effort to help support the thousands of children across the globe who are affected by conflicts.
The move has been met by near universal acclaim by the player base and with the game being 50% off on Steam anyway, there is no better time to both donate to a worthwhile cause and pick up an absolutely fantastic game in the process.
