What goes best with driving heavily armed and armored military vehicles around? Summertime! Also, apparently, professional wrestling! The summer season arrived to both War Thunder and World of Tanks on console, just in two decidedly different ways.
War Thunder players can enjoy Operation S.U.M.M.E.R. between now and August 31st, which has players trying to earn Stars in marathon tasks to get premium event vehicles, special Mythical Creatures decals, and decorations from the Weapons series. The provided link has all of the specifics including what events reward Stars and how many.
As for World of Tanks, console players were “treated” to an hour-long WWE-powered event known as the SummerSlam Showdown. The event featured some vignettes featuring superstars Kofi Kingston and Big E of the tag team New Day, “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, and Lacey Evans as they cooked food for military vets, took on several “challenges” involving a real-life MK5 Centurion tank, and a best-of-three faceoff in the game. It’s a thing that really happened much to the apparent chagrin of many WoT players, and we’ve got the video evidence below to prove it.
