How It Works

Studios are encouraged to take creative ownership of their own unique and innovitive activations: from non-violent in-game modes like snowball fights, football matches, and letters from the battlefront, to in-game purchasable items.

Who's Involved

The campaign, which first launched in 2016, is supported once again by BlackMill Games and M2H, Wargaming.net, Positech Games and joined for the first time by, Big Huge Games, Flaregames, 11 Bit Studios, Focus Home Interactive, XSplit and Extra Credits, with more exciting partners to be announced soon.

The Vision

War Child’s vision for Armistice is an annual event, where more and more game studios get involved and contribute to raising awareness and funds for children affected by war across the world. Now in its second year, the event has grown closer to being the biggest source of charity fundraising in the gaming sector.
