It's been nearly 75 years since the end of World War II, which left an enduring legacy across all facets of life -- and that includes video games. One company that knows this all too well is Wargaming, with its WW2-inspired series of military games, and next week, one of those games will be commemorating the end of the war in Europe with a virtual parade.

Wargaming will stream a "naval parade" in World of Warships on its Twitch channel on May 6, with commentary from naval experts, including its in-house expert, the Chieftain, and New York Times bestselling author and naval historian James D. Hornfischer. They will offer "more details about selected ships while providing a historical context and highlighting the ships’ accomplishments during World War II." Viewers of the parade will have a chance to earn random prize drops, such as VE permanent camouflages and ships.

Wargaming took on this effort due to the fact that many nations that would normally hold in-person parades and festivities to commemorate the anniversary had to abbreviate or cancel their plans due to the current global pandemic. Personally, I think they should have done it anyway, because history and gaming buffs would find it cool.
