Get ready to nod at the latest collaboration between Swedish metal band Sabaton and World of Tanks. The two sides of heavy metal are getting ready for a fantastic show. An essential cut to any tanker’s war soundtrack, the “Steel Commanders” music scene will come in full force, while the cluster will stage a massive in-game event that will reward tankers with a bit of history: the First Premium Tier IX tank!
“Working together with the World of Tanks and Wargaming team on this huge project has been a wonderful experience. We shot an epic musical image together for the Steel Commanders. It was the perfect procedure to kick off our giant collaboration,” says Sabaton lead vocalist Joakim Brodén. “We’re proud to be the module for this original in-game event that includes the first Premium Tier IX tank as the ultimate prize and us as crew members!”
Alongside the music image, Sabaton is also starring in the new in-game ‘Spirit of War’ event. At the event, tankers will take the test to obtain the final reward, the Strv K, the game’s first Premium Tier IX tank. Sharp-eyed viewers have captured this tank in its ‘Steel Commanders’ image. The crew of the tank consists of Sabaton members, including Brodén, who recorded special voiceovers full of surprises for fans to discover. When tankers earn their Strv K, they will receive the quest to obtain the special ‘Battle Spirit’ 3D style.
“It was a pleasure working with the Sabaton group, we were delighted to have them on this project,” says World of Tanks Editorial Manager Max Chuvalov. “Our players love the band’s music and we complement each other well as both sides admire military history. Moreover, we hope the new music will encourage the tankers to work harder for victory.”
Although players may not finish the marathon, they will earn a lot of artifacts along the way, and with each tier they complete, they will receive a 10% discount when purchasing Strv K. Exactly the same goes for the 3D style. Strv K also has its own Sabaton soundtrack and will allow you to earn bonds in Random Battles. All in all, it’s a piece of World of Tanks history that no tanker would want to miss. The Martial Spirit event will run from August 27 to September 6.
