Christmas Truce 2017
Posted by: bramlegolas on steam_community_announcements December 21, 2017
The Christmas Truce of 1914 is going to be reenacted in Verdun once again this Winter, from December 21 to January 4! As in previous years, you’ll be able to get a taste of this unusual moment of peace and reflection in the midst of the enormous devastation of the First World War.
Between every few normal matches, players will experience the Christmas Truce event on a special map featuring football, snowball fights and Christmas cards which can be sent from the trenches by email or social media. Everyone who sends postcards to their loved ones has a chance of winning some WW1 Game Series swag, from Verdun / Tannenberg keys to a trench whistle or thermos. We’ll announce three winners everyday on this thread.
There will also be a Christmas Truce DLC to allow players to easily donate to War Child UK for €1.99 / $1.99 / £1.69. All players who pay for the DLC get a unique Christmas Truce 2017 medal, and will be able to access the Christmas Truce whenever they like for as long as they like until January 4.
War Child is a charity working to help support children affected by war or living in conflict zones.
Do I need to buy the DLC to play on the Christmas Truce map?
No, everyone will be able to experience the Christmas Truce between every few regular matches. However, if you do get the DLC and donate to War Child UK you’ll get an exclusive Christmas Truce War Child medal and be able to join the Christmas Truce whenever you like, as long as you like until January 4. This includes joining existing Christmas Truce games in progress, or starting your own.
What is War Child?
They are a charity working to protect and support children in conflict zones or affected by war.
You can read more about them on www.warchild.org.uk.
How can I win prizes by sending postcards?
It’s easy! Every day, we will randomly pick three winners from those who sent postcards that day. Winners will be announced in this thread, and could win a key for Verdun or Tannenberg, a trench whistle, or a Verdun thermos!
Is the Christmas Truce also happening on consoles?
The Christmas Truce is for PC only.
If I buy the DLC, can I access the Christmas Truce after the event ends?
No, but as well as sending money to War Child, buying the DLC will unlock the ‘Christmas Truce War Child’ medal and allow you to access the Christmas Truce event whenever you like for as long as you like until January 4.
Happy Holidays everyone! Enjoy the snow if you have some, otherwise come enjoy it in Verdun :)
