See MEGADETH's VIC RATTLEHEAD Mascot In New Trailer For WARGAMING's 'Metal Fest' Event
August 26, 2023
Earlier this month, Wargaming announced an electrifying collaboration with iconic metal band MEGADETH. A multi-product musical in-game event called Metal Fest is set to bring the thunderous power of metal to four popular products: World Of Tanks Modern Armor; World Of Tanks Blitz; World Of Warships; and World Of Warships: Legends. Scheduled to kick off on August 28, Metal Fest will be a celebration of the genre, featuring exclusive voiceovers by Dave Mustaine, frontman of MEGADETH; alongside his bandmates James LoMenzo; Dirk Verbeuren; and Kiko Loureiro, as well as an array of MEGADETH-branded in-game items such as tanks and warships, in-game missions and quests, integrated songs, and much more.
The highlight of this collaboration is the introduction of the band's iconic mascot, Vic Rattlehead, who will be making his debut appearance in video games with a stunning 3D representation and unique voiceover.
A new trailer for Metal Fest featuring Vic Rattlehead is available below.
Mustaine says: "This is the first time our images have been immortalized in video games! Moreover, our mascot has unleashed its own roaring voice, adding even more metal mayhem to the games. We've laid down over 350 mind-melting voice lines, and players will feel the thunder as we command during the battles. We have tanks, we have warships, and we are ready for Wargaming Metal Fest!"
World Of Tanks Modern Armor (August 29 - September 25, 2023)
Players will be able to complete Challenges to unlock various MEGADETH-themed rewards. Two new tanks inspired by the albums "Peace Sells…But Who's Buying?" and "The Sick, The Dying… And The Dead!" will make their debut in the Store. Vic Rattlehead will appear as an exclusive 3D Commander, while Dave Mustaine, James LoMenzo, Dirk Verbeuren and Kiko Loureiro will be added as 2D Commanders, all with their own unique voiceovers. Tankers will enjoy two MEGADETH songs ("Soldier On!" and "Peace Sells") in the Garage if they own the MEGADETH tanks, fueling the adrenaline of battles with pure rock power.
World Of Tanks Blitz (August 29 - September 3, 2023)
World Of Tanks Blitz players can join in the action with a dedicated MEGADETH quest, offering exclusive prizes such as static and animated camos inspired by various MEGADETH album covers; a unique tank skin inspired by the "Peace Sells…But Who's Buying?" album for the Chieftain Mk. 6; avatars; and collectible items. An exact replica of Dave Mustaine's guitar will create a special atmosphere in the Hangar, as players dive into thrilling metal-infused battles.
World Of Warships PC (August 28 - September 13, 2023)
World Of Warships players will be engaged in special missions to obtain exclusive Commanders! Dave Mustaine will be immortalized as a ship Commander with an original voiceover, and Vic Rattlehead will also join the fray, issuing orders with a menacing voice. As the final reward, the powerful Death Ray patch will be granted, marking conquerors of the seas with true metal prestige.
Additionally, two special bundles holding ship Commanders will also be available. Players who obtain the "Megadeth: Set The Seas Afire" bundle will also receive ferocious cruiser Rattlehead inspired by the "Rust In Peace" album cover as a bonus. When playing this ship, you will hear the famous "Tornado Of Souls" song from the same album, making battles even more intense.
