The footballer/movie star is stepping into the spotlight as the special guest of the much-anticipated Holiday Ops 2024 event for World of Tanks

The World of Tanks franchise (World of Tanks, World of Tanks Blitz and World of Tanks Modern Armor) continues its annual tradition of celebrating winter holidays with its community by inviting a special celebrity ambassador. This year, the renowned British footballer and movie star Vinnie Jones is ready to lend his charismatic tough-guy persona to the World of Tanks Franchise Holiday Ops 2024 event.

Vinnie Jones has been working covertly as Santa’s enforcer, dealing with those who found themselves on the “naughty list”. However, this year Vinnie isn't here to give the gift of punishment but to submit his resignation letter to Santa. He is leaving his post to seek a new opportunity: becoming a commander in World of Tanks.... but not before he and his crew knock out one last “naughty list”.

“You heard that correct, I'm hanging up my candy canes for good to join the awesome World of Tanks players for Holiday Ops 2024,” said Vinnie Jones, holiday enforcer turned World of Tanks Holiday Ambassador. “My days of ‘correcting’ people on the naughty list are over. I am a World of Tanks commander now, and it is going to be ‘Jingle-Bells’ all the way!”

Team up with Vinnie Jones in the tanker garage, where he will be assigning challenges and quests to the most focused and festive of tankers. Successfully completing these missions will reward players with themed customization items such as celebrity-inspired tank skins, emblems, inscriptions, decals, medals, unique decorations, avatars, and more. Players of World of Tanks and World of Tanks Modern Armor can also recruit Vinnie into their tank crews, with his gruff iconic voice supporting tankers in battles.

Holiday Ops 2024 is set to kick off on December 1st, and World of Tanks players across all platforms can join Vinnie for this holiday adventure.
