War Child UK Armistice Steam sale and charity DLC is available now

Play for charity

Remembrance Sunday is not only being commemorated by special 11-11: Memories Retold DLC, but a charity sale on Steam.

It’s the centenary of Armistice Day on Sunday, when the end of the First World War is commemorated on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, and video games are doing their bit to raise awareness.

Bandai Namco’s 11-11: Memories Retold, which we were very impressed with in our review, was released today, but charity War Child UK has also arranged some special DLC for the game.

The DLC is inspired by real-life stories from children helped by War Child UK and involves fictional characters Jack and Eva as they’re caught up in the events of the First World War. It’ll cost £2.99, with all proceeds going straight to charity.

Not only will extra DLC content be released for 11-11, but also smaller commemorative extras for Prison Architect and World Of Tanks. The latter will also offer a day of premium content if you use the code 111111 on Sunday.

On top of that is the Steam Armistice sale, which is live now and offers discounts on games such as RiME, Prison Architect, The Talos Principle, Broken Sword 5, The Room, ABZÛ, and Democracy 3.

A percentage of proceeds from each sale will go to War Child UK, with the aim of raising at least £250,000.

‘War Child’s Armistice is a unique and exciting initiative. Peace is denied to too many children around the world, but millions of gamers can help some of the world’s most vulnerable children affected by war by playing games as part of War Child’s Armistice’, said , War Child UK global ambassador Carey Mulligan.

‘It’s such an innovative way to fund-raise and very simple too – just buying and playing a game you love can help provide crucial support for innocent victims of war.’
