February 10, 2021 — With the Lunar New Year celebrations kicking off as we welcome the Year of the Ox later this week, both World of Tanks and World of Tanks Blitz are unleashing two unique themed events to mark the occasion.
World of Tanks PC is introducing the Lunar Challenge, which will run from February 12th through 22nd. This special event will see tankers test their skills with 10 stages which offer up great rewards. There will be two ways to complete each stage: missions for commitment (available for Tier VI-X vehicles) and the more challenging missions for mastery (exclusively for Tier IX-X).
For completing all 10 stages, players will get their hands on the tanking embodiment of the Ox, the brand-new 122 TM, as well as a unique Lunar New Year 2D style, which can adorn any vehicle. Additionally, tankers who have already got their hands on the 122 MT can take on daily missions; those who complete 8 of them will be rewarded with a stunning 3D style exclusively for the Chinese medium.
World of Tanks Blitz is also getting in on the action with a special event that will run from February 10th through 19th. Lunar Rising is made up of 9 stages and players will need to win just once a day to get all the rewards, including collectible Lunar New Year items like the Red Lantern, Red Envelope, Mystic Knot and Lunar Ox. As well as all these items, players will be able to get their hands on a never-before-seen camo: Unexpectable. How unexpected!
Additionally, the Lunar New Year-themed Operation Lichun will be available in World of Tanks Blitz throughout February. Players will be able to get their hands on valuable in-game rewards, including a collection of special camos; those who take the Premium Pass route will get even more rewards and the Ox, a brand-new Tier VI Chinese medium tank. For more information about both Operation Lichun and Lunar Rising, please head to the official World of Tanks Blitz portal.
