Wargaming, developer and publisher of the top free naval combat games, World of Warships (PC) and World of Warships: Legends (consoles), today announces its next Christmas charity broadcast, with 24 hours of gameplay, special guests, giveaways and challenges.
To further spread the spirit of giving, Wargaming will offer charity packages for sale to PC and console gamers, with all proceeds going to the global humanitarian organization S. Finally, upon completion of the broadcast, Wargaming will match the funds that have been raised by viewers into a donation of its own.
Starting at 14pm EDT on December 10th, players and fans can watch the broadcast, donate and earn in-game rewards. All proceeds will be dedicated to Save the Children, which works every day in more than 100 countries to give children a healthy start in life, the opportunity to learn and protection from harm. This is part of an ongoing partnership with the charity, which has seen the Wargaming community raise more than $88 in previous years.
World of Warships Lives Charity for Save the Children
“We are so grateful to be in a position to help our charity partner Save the Children and support them in an effort to protect the most vulnerable and improve their living conditions,” he says. Sergey Vorobyev, World of Warships Product Director. "The holiday season is traditionally festive in the World of Warships community, so we wanted to spread the joy even further and give our players the opportunity to come together and support a worthy cause."
During the broadcast, viewers can participate in charity auctions featuring rare ships and exclusive merchandise; interactive games and quizzes; as well as watching in-game battles with special guests and the World of Warships team having fun for a good cause.
“Save the Children is excited to once again partner with Wargaming and its dedicated community of gamers who have supported our efforts,” he says. Ettore Rossetti, lead consultant for technology, marketing and innovation partnerships at Save the Children.
The event also marks the launch of the Save the Children Charity Pack at the World of Warships Premium Store. These containers will include a unique applique and flag, along with a load full of camouflages for players to dress up their winter ships. Console gamers will have their own charity pack in World of Warships: Legends. All proceeds from these limited-time packages will be donated to Save the Children and used as a basis by World of Warships for an equal donation.

In addition to the charity broadcast, Wargaming also announces the 0.10.11 update for World of Warships (PC), which brings the new Shipyard in Clydebank, Scotland, with the tier IX Marlborough ship.
