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. Purchase the Christmas Truce DLC HERE.
War Child is a charity working to help support children affected by war or living in conflict zones.

The FPS Verdun takes place on the Western Front between 1914 and 1918, in one of the bloodiest conflicts in world history. We were inspired by the infamous Battle of Verdun France in 1916. The game offers four distinct game-modes: Frontlines, Attrition, Rifle Deathmatch and Squad Defense. We have included many historically accurate features such as realistic WW1 weaponry, authentic uniforms, gore, and maps based on the real battlefields of France and Belgium.
