'World Of Tanks' Celebrates 40th Anniversary of G.I. JOE With Commanders, Tanks and Event

by Rainier on Oct. 14, 2022 @ 3:00 a.m. PDT

In World Of Tanks player teams are fighting action-packed PvP battles, featuring more than 150 armored fighting vehicles from the pre-WW2 era up to the Korean War.

World Of Tanks is a team-based massively multiplayer online action game dedicated to armored warfare. Throw yourself into the epic tank battles of World War II with other steel cowboys all over the world. Your arsenal includes more than 150 armored vehicles from America, Germany, and the Soviet Union, carefully detailed with historical accuracy.

Ride the legendary Tiger tank, or choose the fast-and-furious Soviet T-34, practice your sharp-shooting skills with the American 155mm M40 Gun Motor Carriage or try experimental/prototype machines such as the Germany's monstrous Maus tank. A Player can have an endless number of tanks in "garage", and all machines can be upgraded in dozens of ways: better turrets, chassis, guns, engines, radios, various ammunition types, plus tank crew members can be leveled up as well.

The legendary G.I. JOE: Real American Hero toy line marks its 40th anniversary and World of Tanks is proud to join the celebration of this major milestone. 

In 1982, G. I. JOE  33⁄4 in. action figures arrived on toy shelves, delivering a new and adventurous play experience that has endured for decades. World of Tanks commemorates this milestone for the G.I. JOE franchise with new 3D styles, new female commanders, G.I. JOE themed web event, and retro-awesome decals, emblems, and inscriptions for each faction.

Coming to take control of the battlefield; Hasbro’s iconic G.I. JOE characters, Cover Girl and The Baroness (in Crimson Strike Force uniform) as World of Tanks commanders. Both commanders are ready for any challenge the fight may bring. But what is an experienced commander without an equally formidable vehicle? Available to players will be two 3D styles inspired G.I. JOE vehicles: Cover Girl’s WOLVERINE and COBRA C.A.T.

The G.I. JOE WOLVERINE WoT Edition is for the Strv S1 tank, The Baroness’ C.A.T. (Crimson Attack Tank) WoT Edition is for M54 Renegade tank.

More adventure awaits with a challenging G.I. JOE themed web event where players may redeem codes to receive emblems dedicated to the G.I. JOE 40th anniversary, and coupons to purchase G.I. JOE branded styles with a discount.

New decals and emblems will be available to mark this special event. Headlining the customization elements is the commemorative, customized G.I. JOE 40th anniversary emblem. Tankers will also get unique decals featuring the legendary G.I. JOE WOLVERINE and the COBRA C.A.T. (Crimson Attack Tank), depicted in all the retro-glory of their original package art.  Emblems include the G.I. JOE Star and the COBRA insignia.

World Of Tanks is available for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
