The Warhammer 40000 Universe Smashes into World of Tanks
Rolling into the battle for the first time ever comes the console-exclusive Leman Russ tank!
A conflict of cosmic scale begins, as the action of Warhammer 40,000 collides with World of Tanks Modern Armor as a special part of the current epic season, Gladiators.
During this Imperium-sized event, players can get five new Premium tanks inspired by the Warhammer 40,000 universe, two new 3D Hero Commanders (Volusad Thassius of the Ultramarines and Patricia Laserian of the Sisters of Battle), and six new 2D Standard Commanders.
All of this sets the stage for a month-long, two-stage challenge against both the forces of Chaos and the Orks. The Warhammer 40,000 event roars into action on May 2 and runs until June 6, 2023.
Triumphantly making its debut in World of Tanks Modern Armor is the Leman Russ heavy tank, a monstrous slab of mechanized armour built exclusively - for the console. Named for the Primarch of the Space Wolves Legion, the Leman Russ heavy tank for the console was conceived and implemented in full cooperation with Games Workshop.
In a massive two-stage community event, tankers will align themselves with either the Space Marines or the Sisters of Battle, with the option to change to the other side for the second stage. From there they can join forces with other players around the globe to fight the Orks and the forces of Chaos. Destroying the Orks will make the Ork content available to all users (for purchase or as rewards); the same mechanic will apply to the Chaos forces and their in-game content.
Directing the voice-overs for the new 3D Hero Commanders is noted director Jason Baughan (Hitman 2, LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, Fable: The Journey). Under his expertise, 330 lines of dialogue for the Commanders Volusad Thassius of the Ultramarines and Patricia Laserian of the Sisters of Battle are brought strikingly to life, grounding the player and establishing the tone in the game of the Warhammer 40,000 universe.
“I’m proud of this project in all aspects really, but if I had to choose just one to highlight, it would be the voice-overs for the commanders. We’ve set a new bar for ourselves in terms of quality: hearing your Ultramarine commander or your Battle Sister commander praising your victory in combat really elevates the gameplay experience,” says Daniel Burr, Live Game Director for World of Tanks Modern Armor.
In addition to the Leman Russ heavy tank, the might of Warhammer 40,000 also comes to World of Tanks Modern Armor with new faction-affiliated tanks: Nemesis Tank Destroyer, Teefbreaka Light Tank, Reaper's Scythe Medium Tank, and the Ignis Purgatio Medium Tank.
