There’s only a few days to go until everyone dresses up as their favourite monster for Halloween, and videogame studios are getting in on the fun as well. Today Gaijin Entertainment, the creator of massively multiplayer online (MMO) title War Thunder, has announced a series of events and promotions for players.
Running from 28th October until 1st, November 2016, there will be an aircraft and a ground event to take part in. For those who enjoy taking to the skies is ‘Witch Hunt’, a race in which players take control of the infamous soviet night bomber, the Polikarpov Po-2 of the ‘Night Witches’ squadron. Getting ahead doesn’t just mean winning the race, it also means players can shoot their rivals with the rear mounted gun. On the ground there’s a race to the Sepulchre in an enchanted M18 Hellcat tank, operating without a commander or crew.
Winners are rewarded with a Witches’ Cauldron trophy. This yields unique items such as decorative pumpkins and witches hat, decals and boosters that improve earnings.
While for the fourth anniversary celebrations there are 50 percent discounts for all vehicles in-game which can be purchased with Silver Lions and Golden Eagles, discounts for in-game items: premium account, talismans, modifications and back-up vehicles and more until 2nd November.
War Thunder supports both Oculus Rift and HTC Vive head-mounted displays (HMDs), and for all the latest updates on the title, keep reading VRFocus.
