Next month will mark the start of charity War Child UK’s Armistice project, where they will work with various game developers fundraise and “promote peaceful gameplay” while also commemorating Armistice Day on November 11. To little surprise, DigixArt, Aardman, and Bandai Namco Entertainment’s upcoming World War I anti-war title 11-11: Memories Retold will be part of that initiative with a special War Child Charity DLC.
While the main story of 11-11: Memories Retold follows Kurt, a German Soldier, and Harry, a Canadian photographer, the War Child Charity DLC instead focuses on Jack and Eva, two “naive and innocent” children that are stuck in the cross-hairs of the violent war. This story was based on real letters War Child UK has received, and 100% of the DLC’s proceeds will go directly to War Child UK.
The War Child Charity DLC will be available on PC, PS4, and Xbox One that same day that 11-11: Memories Retold launches for $2.99. If you are wondering why the game isn’t on Nintendo Switch, Aardman Animation Producer George Rowes revealed to DualShockers at Gamescom that while the developers would like to, it would be quite difficult to port due to its performance-heavy visuals.
You can watch a video where Elijah Wood, Harry’s voice actor, introduces the DLC and partnership with War Child UK below. 11-11: Memories Retold is poised to release on November 9, just days before the 100-year anniversary of Armistice Day, for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
