Megadeth and WARGAMING are teaming up to bring heavy metal to World of Tanks and World of Warships in a new collaboration.
Heavy Metal superstars Megadeth are taking to the online battlefields this month as WARGAMING announces the Metal Fest event for World of Tanks and World of Warships. The event, announced on August 16, will see four of WARGAMING’s titles taken over by Megadeth, and their frontman Dave Mustaine.
As part of the event, Mustaine will be providing voiceovers with his iconic voice, alongside bandmates James LoMenzo, Dirk Verbeuren, and Kiko Loureiro. In addition, World Of Tanks Modern Armor, World Of Tanks Blitz, World Of Warships, and World Of Warships: Legends will all feature in-game Megadeth branded items, including tanks, warships, and decals.
These items will also be the first videogame representation of Vic Rattlehead, the Megadeth mascot! I mean… He’s no Eddie from Iron Maiden, but the thought is there!
And perhaps most exciting, two iconic Megadeth songs, Soldier On! and Peace Sells will feature in-game, in the Garage, if players own some of the Megadeth-themed tanks.
