World of Tanks Gets Surprise New Space-themed Event

To celebrate the anniversary of Yuri Gagarin going to space for the first time, Wargaming has revealed a new, limited-time event for World of Tanks.

If you play World of Tanks and you’ve been craving for some new bonus content then you’re inĀ luck. Today, developer and publisher Wargaming announced a brand new in-game event for the popular MMO, but if you want the extra content you’ll have to act quickly.

The Stellar Bonus event will go live tomorrow, April 12, 2018, which is significant because that’s the day, 57 years ago, that Yuri Gagarin made it to space, making him the first person to achieve such a goal. To celebrate this anniversary, any player who logs in during the event will receive +100% Combat XP, +300% Crew XP, +300% Free XP, and +50% Credits boosters, all for one hour each.

All of the boosters can be used after the event ends, however, players will have exactly 24 hours in order to obtain them. Once 7:20 p.m. EST (4:20 p.m. PST) on April 13, 2018, passes, you’ll no longer be able to earn them, so get moving.

To celebrate the announcement of the event, Wargaming released a brand new trailer, featuring the Russian members of the International Space Station. You can check it out at the end of the article.

World of TanksĀ is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and Windows PC.
