Halloween is usually a period of time where we see games put on events to entice us to play more, entice us back or capture the interests of new players. World of Tanks Blitz has done just that with its Mad Games event.
Kicking off today (October 17) and running until November 12, the Mad Games are a collaboration between Wargaming and Mad Max: Fury Road vehicle designer Peter Pound.
Pound has designed and created two special tanks that are only available during the Mad Games; the Tier V Scavenger and the Tier VII Gravedigger.

Both tanks will be part of the Artists’ Signature Series which is an exclusive collection of tanks for World of Tanks Blitz. The first tank included in the Signature Series was designed by Gundam’s Kunio Okawara.
To get their hands on these two new tanks, players will need to complete the following during the World of Tanks Blitz Mad Games event;
- Scavenger – 50 Victories in Battle
- Gravedigger – Complete a set of Battle Missions
Speaking on his experience designing these tanks, Pound said;
Working together with the World of Tanks Blitz team, I was able to create some unique designs and given creative freedom.
With Mad Max: Fury Road, I was focused on car designs but the challenge here was taking tanks and making them even more heavy metal!
I enjoy a challenge and it was a cool experience. Now I hope everyone enjoys the hard work put into these steel beasts.
In addition to the two new tanks, World of Tanks Blitz Mad Games also includes a special post-apocalypse mode that sees the landscapes of the game destroyed by sandstorms. Players will also be able to use special abilities including invisibility, shield and armour restoration.
Tanks from previous Halloween events will be back including Tankenstein and Dracula and Helsing.
