The lead designer of the World of Tanks game, Jeff Gregg took to the official PlayStation blog this week to reveal the celebrations for the 100th anniversary of tanks from the game.
To do this, the developer has released a new trailer of all of the tanks that have been included in the game, along with the inclusion of special custom operations, a new Centennial T95 tank, and a brand new event mode.
Gregg explained more with the following:
First of all, celebrating 100 Years of Tanks is obviously a big milestone for us. For me personally it’s a reminder of how far we’ve come both “in real life” and in the game itself; these behemoths have had incredible influence on history. From the first Mark I tank that rolled across Europe to the current roster of vehicles in the game, each tank has had an impact on both me and all of the development team. We take great pride in bringing these vehicles to the players in our community and love to see them used in digital combat all across the world.
To celebrate this anniversary, the team has worked on special custom operations, a new Centennial T95 tank for players to acquire, and a brand new event mode featuring the Mark I tank itself. For those who don’t know, the Mark I was the first vehicle to be given the moniker “tank.” Its primary job was designed to break through defensive lines and traverse across trenches while protecting soldiers from enemy fire. It was big, noisy, slow, and terrifying when it appeared on the battlefield.
Be sure to check out the trailer below for a quick look.
