World of Tanks is commemorating the 75th anniversary of VE Day, the day that marked the end of the Second World War in Europe, with a brand-new PvE mode called Road to Berlin. The event started today and runs until the 18th May and will see players take to the battlefields in Allied tanks to defeat AI controlled enemies. Below is a short trailer for the event and a longer video providing details of the event.
In the event players will have the option to join one of 5 different Units, British, American or Soviet, and take part in battles against the AI. Each unit will consist of three middle-tier vehicles of the same type and will have a set of Combat Boosts, such as Airstrike, Artillery Strike and Special Shells, to help the mission go more smoothly.
Each battle will have 5 sequential objectives, including capturing and defending special zones and defeating enemy commanders, that will require players to use different tactics to achieve. Battles will take place on one of four maps that have been specially created for the campaign, three of these are available to fight on now with the fourth map, titled Berlin, becoming available on the 8th May when the war in Europe officially ended.
The event will provide players with a variety of rewards, including Decals, Bounty Equipment and a special Medal, plus there’s a chance to win the IS-2 with spaced armor.
“The end of the Second World War in Europe is a key part of global history,” states Max Chuvalov, Publishing Director, World of Tanks. “By creating this mode, we intended to remind people all around the world of this anniversary.”
