I’m not too clear on the particulars, such as which vehicles and tiers will be available options, but Wargaming is bringing a PvE mode into World of Tanks, “Homefront”, as an event running from Thursday, July 25, to Tuesday, August 6.
Battles take place on both the Eastern and the Western Front. On each of them, you can join one of three Divisions:
The Eastern Front (U.S.S.R.):
• The Ironsides
• The Crimson Mongrels
• The Beast Slayers
The Western Front (U.K. and U.S.A.):
• The Spearhead Brigade
• The Rolling Saints
• The Lucky Second
Each Division has its own unique history, a number of available vehicles, and various active and passive abilities.
Battle side by side with random allies or in a Platoon of five (5) friends to stop the onslaught of enemy bots attacking in waves that get stronger with every passing minute. Don’t let them break through your last line of defense or they’ll start dealing damage to your base.
Although it’s a PvE event, you still need solid game skills and great diligence to successfully resist the A.I. enemy attacks. It’s no picnic — you’re going to get quite a workout on the battlefield. However, the rewards are worth the metaphorical “blood, sweat, and tears,” so gather your friends in a winning Platoon, summon your will, and push for victory!
In World of Warships I’ve gotten to where I mainly play the PvE modes, so I’m glad to see Wargaming working to incorporate some PvE modes into World of Tanks, too.
