Verdun Players Can Now Take Part In A Christmas Truce
Throwing snowballs at other players or playing football matches are not things that are associated with realistic First World War games, but that is exactly what is happening in Verdun. The developers of this first person shooter have added a brand new dedicated winter map to the game where players can engage in these activities and more. Even more amazing is the fact that it is historically accurate as French, German and British troops actually held a truce during Christmas!
World War 1 was one of the bloodiest wars the world had ever seen, but Christmas cards written in the trenches by soldiers in 1914 revealed details of this remarkable truce. Players of Verdun can now take part in this remarkable even by joining in on football matches, pelting other players with snowballs, singing along to Christmas carols and even writing Christmas cards. Best of all, by sharing these cards players can win an extra Steam key to share with friends this festive season.
The WW1 Christmas Truce in Verdun is active from December 22 until January 4 2016 and during this period the game is also sold at a nice 40% discount. Verdun features realistic World War 1 gameplay, complete with authentic weaponry and realistic bullet physics, so players who have yet to experience the game should definitely make use of the discount.
