Wargaming and World Of Tanks have announced a long-term collaboration with the Swedish heavy metal band SABATON.
For Wargaming and its millions of players, the combination of history and epic music is a huge part of their gaming scene. Not only is SABATON a big influence for fans of the game, but the bandmembers themselves love playing World Of Tanks when they have some time between the shows. It just goes to show that this kind of united inspiration brings a massively diverse bunch of people together to share their passion…and blow stuff up.
"It's fantastic to see that SABATON's members are an active part of World Of Tanks," said Maxim Chuvalov, World Of Tanks marketing manager. "We know our players' interests don't just stop at gaming — their talents go far beyond. With this collaboration, we wanted to celebrate the musical talent from our World Of Tanks community because it's an extremely important part of the in-game experience. This was our chance to share the music in and around our games with the global gaming communities and help inspire them even more."
"History is a great source of inspiration to us," said Joakim Brodén, lead singer of SABATON. "We like to tell stories that influenced the lives of a lot of people. We've all been playing World Of Tanks and seeing the company step outside of just gaming in lots of cool ways is an awesome thing to be a part of."
Fans of Wargaming and SABATON can expect some cool surprises on the way, so you'd better stay tuned for more information. And, of course, rock on!
