Big prizes await World of Tanks players in May’s Soviet Dream Machines event
The rare Motherland tank is just one of the many prizes up for grabs during the latest World of Tanks special event.
With World of Tanks recently hitting its 1.0 release on PC – more than eight years after its original launch – console players now have their own reason to celebrate thanks to the Soviet Dream Machines event kicking off in May.
Exclusive to World of Tanks players on PS4, Xbox One and Xbox 360, this month-long event is chock-full of goodies for avid "tankers". Alongside the typical rewards for emerging victorious, console players will receive special points whenever they make it into the top five for their team at the end of a multiplayer battle. These points can then be redeemed for a wide range of tantalising prizes, including Boost Ops, Premium time and even Premium tanks.
Heading up the selection of tanks on offer during the Soviet Dream Machines event is the Motherland, a Soviet Medium Tank that long-time tankers might remember as one of the first Hero tanks to be added to the game. Alongside the Motherland is the brand-new T-29, a tank built for devastating close-range encounters, as well as the KV-220-2, the ISU-122S and the T-50-2.
Even more Premium tanks will be joining the ranks as May's special event continues, with the most notable being Kraft's Pz. IV. This personalised tank serves as an early teaser of the upcoming World of Tanks comic book World of Tanks: Citadel, which Garth Ennis of Preacher and The Punisher fame is penning.
New tanks aren't the only additions coming to World of Tanks on console in May, either. A raft of special events will be popping off throughout the month as well, providing plenty of opportunities to rack up more points for those sweet, sweet prizes. From hunting down Soviet tanks in the new Lock On: Soviet Tanks Op to taking the Russian war machines for a spin in the Soviet Predators Op, May is set to be a wild one for console tankers. To top it all off, a new map will join the rotation from 1 May: Nomonhan, a battlefield based on the real-life conflict between the Japanese and Soviets at Khalkhin Gol.
The Soviet Dream Machines event kicks off from 1 May and is freely available to all World of Tanks players on PS4, Xbox One and Xbox 360.
