CHICAGO, ILLINOIS (DECEMBER 4, 2018) – In honor of our veterans and active-duty members of the military who put their lives on the line for their country, Wargaming is giving back via two special activities. The first is a special charity event in the Greater Philadelphia Area, during the annual Army vs. Navy football game on December 8, 2018. At this event, Wargaming invites guests to come to a local sports bar and watch the game, with free food and drinks provided by the publisher. More info and a sign-up form to request an invitation can be found at the official World of Tanks: Mercenaries website.

As another way to honor US servicemembers, Wargaming will sponsor special viewings of the Army vs. Navy game at various U.S. Army and Navy bases around the world. As part of these viewing events, Wargaming will give away video game consoles with World of Tanks: Mercenaries and additionally World of Warships: Legends pre-installed when available.

“We are honored to support the active service members across seven different army and navy bases to enjoy the traditional American Football rivalry match together with their brothers in arms,” said Ingo Horn, Communication Director for Console at Wargaming. “After the event, they can keep enjoying camaraderie with friends and family around the world via our donated game consoles as they play World of Tanks: Mercenaries or in the near future World of Warships: Legends.”
