To mark the release of the new film, Dunkirk, Warner Bros. has joined forces with Wargaming for a suite of new WWII-themed content for its suite of video games.

Wargaming will commemorate the 77th anniversary since the events that took place at Dunkirk during the war, with a series of ‘Remember Dunkirk’ events.

In July, events will come to the Wargaming ‘Battle Trilogy’ of video games, while a series of offerings are taking place across the entire slate of Wargaming's combat video games.

"We believe Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk will be an unforgettable film about one of the most momentous accomplishments of World War II," said Erik Whiteford, head of marketing at Wargaming America.

"We are honoured to be in a partnership with a creative endeavour that shares our passion for honouring and preserving the incredible events that define that era."
