It's been 75 years since the Second World War has ended in Europe, and Wargaming.net is marking the anniversary of the armistice by launching a new PvE mode: Road to Berlin, for World of Tanks, which runs from May 4 to May 18.
There will be five different units for players to join among the Soviet, American, and British forces, with each unit consisting of three middle-tier vehicles of the same type. They will also have a set of Combat Boosts such as Special Shells, Artillery Strike, and Airstrike to help their enemies with more efficiency. Once chosen, they will team up with four other commanders to take on AI-controller units.
Each battle will have 5 sequential objectives called Battle Missions. The Battle Missions require players to utilize many different battle tactics in order to conquer them. They can range from defending special zones or toppling the opponents or even defeating enemy commanders.
There will are four maps that have been specifically crafted for Road to Berlin, including a brand new Berlin map. Only three will be available from the start, with the Berlin map being made available on May 8th in the evening which was when the ceasefire became official 75 years ago.
“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.”
As players make progress within the mode, they will unlock Decals, Bounty Equipment, a special medal, and other rewards. The top prize will be an IS-2 with spaced armor.
