Wargaming is proud to announce an electrifying collaboration with iconic metal band Megadeth. A multi-product musical in-game event called Metal Fest is set to bring the thunderous power of metal to four popular products: World of Tanks Modern Armor; World of Tanks Blitz; World of Warships; and World of Warships: Legends. Scheduled to kick off on August 28, Metal Fest will be a celebration of the genre, featuring exclusive voiceovers by Dave Mustaine, frontman of Megadeth; James Lomenzo; Dirk Verbeuren; and Kiko Loureiro, as well as an array of Megadeth-branded in-game items such as tanks and warships, in-game missions and quests, integrated songs, and much more!
The highlight of this collaboration is the introduction of the band’s iconic mascot, Vic Rattlehead, who will be making his debut appearance in video games with a stunning 3D representation and unique voiceover.
“This is the first time our images have been immortalized in video games! Moreover, our mascot has unleashed its own roaring voice, adding even more metal mayhem to the games. We’ve laid down over 350 mind-melting voice lines, and players will feel the thunder as we command during the battles. We have tanks, we have warships, and we are ready for Wargaming Metal Fest!” says Dave Mustaine, frontman of Megadeth.
World of Tanks will receive two new vehicles based on Megadeth’s albums: “Peace Sells… but Who’s Buying?” and “The Sick, The Dying… and the Dead!“. Megadeth’s mascot, Vic Rattlehead, will also be available as a commander.
World of Warships will receive Dave Mustaine as a ship commander, with original voice lines, accompanied by Vic Rattlehead. Players who purchase the Megadeth: Set the Seas Afire bundle will receive the ferocious cruiser Rattlehead, inspired by the “Rust in Peace” album cover.
The Metal Fest event will start on August 28, 2023, on all Wargaming titles.
World of Warships is available on iOS, Android, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and Microsoft Windows (through Steam). World of Tanks is available for the same platforms, as well as the Nintendo Switch.
