World of Tanks celebrates Yuri’s Night and its own anniversary with ‘Stellar Bonus’ event

Sick of the same old holidays every year in MMOs? World of Tanks is fond of plucking really good ones out of the void and finding a way to use them in-game. Today’s event is in honor of the International Day of Human Space Flight, probably better known as Yuri’s Night, the celebration of the first manned spaceflight by Yuri Gagarin on April 12th, 1961.

“This double occasion inspired Wargaming and the International Space Station to create a project called Stellar Bonus,” says Wargaming. “On April 12, the ISS will beam holiday boosters full of goodies down to earth. To get your piece of the pie, log into World of Tanks and play one battle during the event.” Loot includes a stack of XP and credit boosters, usable even after the event is over tomorrow morning.

We’ll be streaming the game today at 3 p.m. EDT on OPTV in honor of the game’s anniversary, so check back this afternoon to see how far the game has come!
