Wargaming has announced that World of Tanks Blitz is kicking off a special event today, in partnership with Games Workshop and their legendary series, Warhammer 40,000.
Players will soon be able to lead the charge with indomitable Space Marines—the finest fighting force of the Imperium of Man. Taking part in “Macragge's Thunder” event, starting today, recruits get their hands on two iconic vehicles: the Vindicator and the Predator, both sporting the colors of Ultramarines, one of the most famous Space Marine Chapters. Players can also earn the camo of two other Chapters of great renown: Imperial Fists and Dark Angels.
To put the Vindicator and the Predator in their Garages and win a wealth of credits, tankers need to earn Ultramarines, Imperial Fists, and Dark Angels Emblems in battles, and use these special currencies to complete three stages of “Macragge’s Thunder”. Going through the three additional stages will provide the most stalwart tankers with lots of assorted boosters, a load of spare parts, and the camo of the Imperial Fists and Dark Angels for both Space Marine vehicles. During the event, Big and Huge Bonus Containers will offer a small chance to get the Ultramarines’ Vindicator or Predator outright.
“By launching the ‘Macragge’s Thunder’ event, we’re saluting all tankers and Warhammer 40,000 fans,” says Andrey Ryabovol, World of Tanks Blitz Publishing Product Director at Wargaming. “We know these two groups overlap—being brothers in arms and waging war unites World of Tanks Blitz and the grim dark future of Warhammer 40,000. Now players can fight like the best Space Marines in World of Tanks Blitz and earn the privilege of driving the vehicles of distinguished Chapters—in the Emperor’s name!”
