It is that day now when we all must tread carefully on the Internet. It is the day of false news stories, jokes and tall tales. However, sometimes during all that we get something kind cool.
Wargaming’s April Fools joke is one of those. They’ve added a new mode to their game World of Tanks that’ll only be available for a limited time. Just what have they added? Well, take a look.
Yes, last year they took us to the Moon – so this year they’ve taken the game a little further over to the red planet of our solar system. The terrain will be rocky red and you’ll get a chance to use your favourite tank to zip along shooting lasers under hovering UFOs, all in simulated low-gravity conditions. Sounds fun, and the trailer makes it look pretty amusing as well.
Playing the mode will get you a ‘Life on Mars’ medal, but the gamemode will only be available from now until April 3rd at 8am BST – so hurry if you want to grab it. Who knows though, there have been cases of April Fools jokes being so popular that studios have implemented revised versions into the game permanently.
And if you want them, Wargaming has actually given some tips, which are as follows:
Use ramps to launch the Lunar Chaffee to skip valleys and reach health power-ups.
Use target lock while on the move to increase firing accuracy.
Drive into the light (yes, we mean it) to see what comes next.
Today can be a little bit annoying for some of us, but frankly the creative jokes and the fun ones (like this one!) kind of make the day worthwhile. A little.
