With the Halloween season approaching, World of Tanks Blitz has collaborated with Mad Max: Fury Road’s Principle Vehicle Designer and Concept Artist Peter Pound to open the Mad Games event that will begin October 17 and run through to November 12.
Alongside Pound’s creations, the Mad Games features an exclusive post-apocalyptic mode, where sandstorms have destroyed the landscapes of World of Tanks Blitz. Tankers will be able to utilize special and powerful abilities like invisibility, shields and armor restoration.
To get everyone ready for this year’s festivities, the Garage now already has a post-apocalyptic flavor, maps have become a bit more haunting and an assortment of unique tank customization items are ready to spook out other tankers. Tanks from previous Halloween events also make a welcome return, including: 2015’s Tankenstein and 2016’s Dracula and Helsing.
Pound has created two new tanks which will only be unlockable during the event: the Tier V Scavenger and the Tier VII Gravedigger. To obtain the Scavenger, players need to earn 50 victories in battle, while the Gravedigger will require them to complete a set of battle missions.
These two tanks join the Artists’ Signature Series, an exclusive selection for World of Tanks Blitz, that began with legendary Gundam designer Kunio Okawara’s tank, the O-47.
“Working together with the World of Tanks Blitz team, I was able to create some unique designs and given creative freedom,” states Peter. “With Mad Max: Fury Road, I was focused on car designs but the challenge here was taking tanks and making them even more heavy metal! I enjoy a challenge and it was a cool experience. Now I hope everyone enjoys the hard work put into these steel beasts.”
