In quite possibly the weirdest tie-in we will see all year, World of Tanks is celebrating the International Day of Human Space Flight by holding a Stellar Bonus event. I can’t even begin to think how they came up with this idea, by their very nature tanks are stuck quite firmly to the ground and at no point zip off to space.
Here are cosmonauts Oleg Artemyev and Anton Shkaplerov on the actual International Space Station in actual space, wearing World of Tanks t-shirts and launching the event. No, really, they are, watch the video.
To participate in the event players should simply log-in to their World of Tanks account and play one battle between April 12, 06:00 GMT (BST) and April 13, 06:00 GMT (BST) to claim their Stellar Bonus of valuable in-game boosters.
