World of Tanks Blitz, Can tanks function in space?

World of Tanks Blitz is heading for a new frontier: outer space. Throughout April, all activities have a cosmic flavor, including several in-game events, the return of Burning Games and the Gravity Force mode, as well as a dedicated Battle Pass — Operation Red Planet — starring a new Explorer tank!

As a first salvo, to begin the “cosmic” month, World of Tanks Blitz launched a model of the mentioned tank into the stratosphere. This 1:32 size replica of the modified Tier VI Cromwell B medium tank sprung into the air at a speed of up to 15m/sec, hovered 24 km above Earth, landed successfully and is now ready to crown the special rewards of the action-packed Operation Red Planet!

In addition to the new Operation, that will be running from April 1 to 30, tankers should strap in for a shower of cosmic activities:

  • First comes the Galaxy Riches event granting players an outstanding chance to get unique in-game items that can be exchanged for certain resources, such as credits, boosters and certificates for Premium Account days. The event will take place from March 26 until April 5.
  • Next follows a week of Burning Games. Running from March 31 to April 4, the event will be loaded with tons of fun to indulge yourself into as usual.
  • The Sheridan Rocket event will burst into the game on April 9 and will stay till April 16, allowing those players who haven’t acquired the Sheridan Missile tank with the unique ATGM mechanics yet, to enjoy operating this vehicle!
  • Last but not least, the game will see the long-awaited return of the Gravity Force mode. Available from April 12 to April 18, it will introduce a new ability that allows tanks to jump up and operate in the air.

“April is a traditional “cosmic” month in World of Tanks Blitz, when we encourage our players to step out of the earthly limits and indulge in a truly out-of-this-world experience,” says Natallia Pershyts, Publishing Product Director, World of Tanks Blitz. “This time, we’re treating them to a whole cluster of special activities so everyone can find something to their liking!”
