Mech Battles Coming to World of Tanks: Mercenaries
Youd be surprised what the gang at Wargaming.net like to do, and with this latest news, it is getting back to some of the teams roots with what is a surpirse new mode that will be hear for a short time. Core Breach is the new mode, and simply put youll be piloting huge mechs on the battlefield. Yes, you arent reading wrong, youll be piloting mechs. 2019 also marks the launch of the Winter Games, a new event that gives players the opportunity to earn monthly rewards and Premium gift tanks.
From January 29 through February 4, the new mode will bring mech battles to World of Tanks: Mercenaries. In Core Breach, players will be able to swap their trusty tanks for these titanium titans and duke it out in 4 v 4 deathmatches. You will clobber your way to victory in one of two mechs: the gigantic US Iron Soldier, or the sleek and deadly USSR Steel Comrade.
Each mech is equipped with lasers, missiles, machine guns, and a whole lot of health. Shoot and crush your way through the snow-covered Old River City map and its plethora of destructible environments, then decimate all opposing mechs to reign supreme. Destroyed mechs will experience a core breach explosion capable of leveling city blocks and your mech as well. The action doesn’t stop if you get knocked down – just eject, respawn, and get right back at it again.
While mechs may be a surprising addition to World of Tanks: Mercenaries, this mode marks a return to the roots of Wargaming Chicago-Baltimore (formerly known as Day 1 Studios), with some of the key talents behind Microsoft’s machine-mashing MechAssault series working to bring Core Breach to life. This special event is the latest in a series of crazy fan-favorite modes that flip World of Tanks: Mercenaries’ core gameplay on its head, with previous events featuring sea-faring battles, tank warfare on Mars, and even an alien invasion of Earth.
