Between October 26 and November 9, World of Tanks is getting a Halloween event from Silent Hill’s creative minds. Masahiro Ito, the art director of the Silent Hill franchise, and composer Akira Yamaoka collaborated with Wargaming to create a new World of Tanks PVE co-op event.
Utilizing “unique co-op mechanics,” players will fight against mysterious tanks while exploring a town called Mirny-13. In the event’s custom map, players in teams of five will ride modified Tier IX tanks. Their task is to discover why peculiar supernatural events, likely related to a “scientific experiment gone wrong,” are occurring.
XP and credits earned in the Mirny-13 event will carry over to the main game. Players can also unlock and obtain 3D skins designed by Ito, as well as special crew members, 3D styles, and camos.
“Working on this year’s Halloween event for World of Tanks was a very interesting and rewarding experience,” says Ito. “The combination of the passionate artists at Wargaming and our shared vision for a unique and frightening event made this all possible. My previous works are known for their unsettling atmospheres, chilling narratives and nightmarish beasts, so hopefully World of Tanks players are ready to experience all of these this Halloween!”
World of Tanks was released in 2010 and has been going on strong for 10 years. The game is a free-to-play MMO devoted to tank battles. You can play it on PlayStation 4, PC, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Xbox 360, and Mac.
