A very special treat awaits you during the Tank Festival—the Great Race! The legendary mode is making a comeback, so get ready to tear up the asphalt as you speed toward the finish.
This time, the Great Race has received a considerable revamp, making it even more enjoyable than the last time it appeared in 2014. Get ready to tame one of three unique racing tanks and push yourself to the limit to prove you’re the real king of the racetrack!
As before, the rally takes place in a 3v3 team mode. Choose to play solo as part of a team of three random players, or gather your friends in a winning Platoon of three. Pay attention: solo players will play only against other solo players, and platoons will only play against platoon players.
When the event begins, you will find three racing tanks in your Garage:
Each racing tank boasts unique characteristics and gameplay, as well as special mounted “racing” equipment which cannot be removed or replaced. All three tanks also have “Overdrive” as their default active ability, which gives a speed boost.
There are two ways to win the Great Race:
- Reach and capture the base at the end of the racetrack before the enemy team.
- Destroy all enemy vehicles on the opposing team during the race or at the base.
The Great Race will unfold in the coastal industrial zone, which should be familiar to racers who participated in the event back in 2014.
There will be several types of progression during the event, depending on whether or not you joined a team. The teams are led by three racing captains and you can join any of them to get your hands on additional rewards!
During the race, and depending on how efficient you are on the track, you earn Racing Trophies. A player can receive only one racing trophy of a specific type per race. Each trophy you earn brings you a certain number of racing points, which are taken into account in your personal racing achievements.
