Forget the candy. This year Halloween is all about gaming.

From now through Nov. 9, World of Tanks is presenting the biggest Halloween event in its 10-year history.

Teaming up with Masahiro Ito, art director and monster designer of the Silent Hill universe, and composer Akira Yamaoka, the World of Tanks event will draw players into the sinister story of a scientific experiment gone wrong and a world gone mad.  

“Inspired by the imaginations of both Ito-san and Yamaoka-san – we’ve let our team run wild for spooky season, with a custom event map and a unique co-op mechanics; this PVE event will be unlike any other,” said World of Tanks Global Publishing Director Max Chuvalov in a release. 

“But beware, those who go it alone will do so at their own peril. Teamwork is key this Halloween, and it is the only way to vanquish your frightful foes,” he added.

Video games that took it too far

In the game, players must use teamwork and tactical cooperation to defeat armored monster tanks of a mysterious origin. A platoon of 5 tanks will join forces to save the world and uncover the mystery behind the town of Mirny-13!.

Players will be taken through four changing worlds in platoons of five, riding in specifically modified Tier IX tanks and unlocking the story of Mirny-13 as they go.  

 “The combination of the passionate artists at Wargaming and our shared vision for a unique and frightening event made this all possible. My previous works are known for their unsettling atmospheres, chilling narratives and nightmarish beasts, so hopefully, World of Tanks players are ready to experience all of these this Halloween,” said Masahiro Ito.   

 Video games: Addictive or just fun?

Throughout the event, tankers will be able to access unique content, carrying special crew members, 3D styles and camos, and loads of XP and Credits over to the main game. 

Players will even be able to get their hands on 3D skins designed by Masahiro Ito himself, whilst enjoying a haunting ambient track for the event hangar created by Akira Yamaoka.
