The Offspring have announced a new collaboration with World of Tanks: an in-game concert. Fresh off their performance in Minsk where there were over 250.000 visitors, they will take to the stage in the World of Tanks garage from September 18 to October 7. This means that every tanker will be able to rock out with the Cali punk rockers’ virtual counterparts between these dates! Plus, the event can be replayed indefinitely.
The punk rock outfit will be playing a setlist featuring some of their greatest hits including ‘Pretty Fly (for a White Guy)’, ‘The Kids Aren’t Alright’ and ‘You’re Gonna Go Far, Kid’. And the band have been mocapped to give the highest level of authenticity to their performance on the virtual stage.
The Offspring performance is just one part of World of Tanks’ biggest event ever, Tank Festival. Since early August, tankers have had a litany of subevents to take part in and there’s still more to come with Tank Festival running until October 7, including the much-hyped return of a fan favourite, tank races in The Great Race.
Finally, World of Tanks and The Offspring have only hinted at any further collaboration. But if it happens, it would be “Pretty Fly”.
