Gianluigi Buffon Joins the Ranks at World of Tanks PC

Footballing icon Gianluigi “Gigi” Buffon has joined forces with Wargaming on a massive global campaign to launch an Italian tank line for World of Tanks PC.

Working as brand ambassador, Buffon has taken the wheel of his own steel beast to share Italian tanks with the world in a new TV spot. Thanks to Buffon’s passion in the creative process, World of Tanks and the footballing icon combined the emotions experienced in intense tank combat with the passion of football in a fantastic video. What’s more, the footballer himself will appear in the game as a tank commander available exclusively for Italian vehicles.

“World of Tanks and football may seem a bit of an odd pairing—but trust me, it’s not,” said Anton Pankov, World of Tanks Publishing Director. “Whether you’re 15 vs 15 in our game or 11 vs 11 in football, it is all about teamwork. You need a good head on your shoulders because the right strategy and tactics are crucial for securing a victory. It’s this core that makes teaming up with the legendary Buffon a natural fit in celebrating Italian tanks.”

“There’re always new challenges ready to knock you down, but your teammates are here to back you up. And having a few tanks at your command makes life a little easier,” said Gianluigi Buffon. “If you think you’re up for it, then join me in World of Tanks!”

With the release of Italian tanks today, players can start their journey of discovery into what makes these vehicles such a thrilling experience. And Buffon will be right beside them along the way.

  1. Aaaand i hat ewot now, i mean, okay everything before him, perfect, but do they really need to come down and Take Buffon as New Player Magnet? Tbh, that is god damn embarassing that they sank to such a low level

  2. will Buffon come with a unique commander voice? i also wonder how players will be able to get him. Selling him with a premium tank (like the Swedish Sabbaton) makes little sense given that the only Italian premium had a marathon a very short while ago. thus looks more like there might be an event to earn him.
