Footballing icon Gianluigi “Gigi” Buffon has joined forces with Wargaming on a massive global campaign to launch an Italian tank line for World of Tanks PC.
Working as brand ambassador, Buffon has taken the wheel of his own steel beast to share Italian tanks with the world in a new TV spot. Thanks to Buffon’s passion in the creative process, World of Tanks and the footballing icon combined the emotions experienced in intense tank combat with the passion of football in a fantastic video. What’s more, the footballer himself will appear in the game as a tank commander available exclusively for Italian vehicles.
“World of Tanks and football may seem a bit of an odd pairing—but trust me, it’s not,” said Anton Pankov, World of Tanks Publishing Director. “Whether you’re 15 vs 15 in our game or 11 vs 11 in football, it is all about teamwork. You need a good head on your shoulders because the right strategy and tactics are crucial for securing a victory. It’s this core that makes teaming up with the legendary Buffon a natural fit in celebrating Italian tanks.”
“There’re always new challenges ready to knock you down, but your teammates are here to back you up. And having a few tanks at your command makes life a little easier,” said Gianluigi Buffon. “If you think you’re up for it, then join me in World of Tanks!”
World of Tanks PC is a popular online game with over 160 million registered players all around the globe. Its dedicated community of players love to celebrate history, work together in battle, and take on pulse-pounding tank combat.
With the release of Italian tanks today, players can start their journey of discovery into what makes these vehicles such a thrilling experience. And Buffon will be right beside them along the way.
