On April 1st, 2013 MMO developer and publisher, Wargaming, made an announcement to add PvE elements to their two titles: World of War Planes and World of Tanks. The element being added to the games? Zombies.
In World of Tanks the zombies will clog up the tracks, immobilizing you and possibly infecting your crew. In world of planes zombies will latch on to your plane’s wings should you get too close to a tree line, making your plane drag to the side and slow down. The gunners on planes will have to be killed twice. Zombies and War machines, sounds too good to be true?
That’s what many players thought when they heard this announcement and soon after it was confirmed that this announcement was indeed a joke for April fools day. Many fans of the games were actually really excited to see the new additions to the game and admittedly agreed it would be worth trying as a small side game added to the originals.
To add to the joke the design team included some great art work from the false add on version of the games, truly making fans fall in love with the idea of killing a Zombie with a tank. Good one Wargaming, my hat’s off to you.
