Wargaming’s free-to-play fight MMO, World of Tanks, is leaning arduous into Halloween this 12 months by collaborating with two of the unique creators of the Silent Hill sequence: artist and monster designer Masahiro Ito and musician Akira Yamaoka. Whereas we sit on our arms ready for that long-rumored Silent Hill reboot, or for Konami to do one thing (something!) with the franchise, World of Tanks is our present best choice for otherworldly horror vibes.
World of Tanks’ Halloween occasion features a PvE cooperative mode wherein gamers will battle “armored monster tanks of a mysterious origin” as a workforce of 5. Within the mysterious city of Mirny-13, gamers might want to battle waves of enemy forces, accumulate a useful resource referred to as Mirium, and ship it to the construction referred to as Magnus. Surviving gamers will then be transported to a parallel dimension, the place an more and more thick fog will envelop the city.
The occasion will embody new 3D skins that gamers should purchase, which have been designed by Masahiro Ito, the creator of Silent Hill’s iconic Pyramid Head. These tank skins are rusted, smothered in barbed wire, and in any other case fairly Silent Hill-y. Akira Yamaoka, accountable for the Silent Hill sequence’ signature soundtracks, wrote a “a haunting ambient monitor” that performs in the occasion hangar, based on Wargaming.
