Although World of Tanks PC players won’t be blasting off to Mars for April Fools’ Day like their console brethren, they will have a chance to enjoy some interesting tank battles come Saturday.
Over the past week, you may have heard rumors that the rare M6A2E1 (also known as the “Mutant”) was scheduled to go on sale for one day only on April Fools’ Day. Given the questionable date, players weren’t sure whether to take the sale seriously. However, according to MeatheadMilitia in the latest World of Tanks Weekly video, the rumored sale is “not a joke”.
The Mutant M6A2E1 tank bundle will go on sale on Saturday, April 1st, and will cost about $89.99 USD. The Mutant bundle will only be available for 24 hours in the World of Tanks Premium Shop, so be sure to pick up this big-headed goliath before it’s too late, as it may never be sold again.
Since the Mutant was part of an exclusive pre-order package prior to the release of World of Tanks, some players aren’t happy about the tank becoming available to the rest of the player base. However, the World of Tanks Twitter page stated that they will be giving players who already own the Mutant a special gift as a way of thanking these players for supporting the game.
@DigInHardanger We wanted to give everyone a chance to get this tank. Original owners will get a gift to TY for your dedication to our game!— World of Tanks (@worldoftanks) March 29, 2017
Although the price point for the Mutant may be a bit steep for some, this is an extremely rare tank that hasn’t been sold since the launch World of Tanks and may never become available again. This Tier 8 Heavy will also avoid Tier X battles, which is certainly a tempting incentive.
The TOG Tsunami will also be taking over World of Tanks on April Fools’ Day this year. Since the TOG Tsunami consists of all-TOG battles, the TOG II will be available as a rental for 24 hours so that players can participate in the event.
“It is going to be a very slow battle.” You’ve got that right, Meathead.
