It’s time to celebrate the spookiest holiday of the year with World of Tanks!
Get ready to try out an exciting new PvE mode where you’ll battle the supernatural and unravel the secrets behind the abnormal events that occurred in the forbidden town of Mirny-13.
Choose Your Difficulty Level!
There are three difficulty levels available: one-star, two-star, and three-star. The higher the difficulty, the stronger the enemies and the more valuable the rewards for a victorious battle. But don’t be deceived, as even the “one-star” difficulty level will be quite challenging for many commanders, so never let your guard down! Get ready to fight with all your might to reach the end and escape from Mirny-13 alive.
There will be several Phases you need to go through to return home. When playing on the one-star difficulty level, you will have to fight through 3 Phases. For two-star and three-star, survive 4 Phases.
For each Phase, Magnus consumes exactly as much Mirium as it takes to move on to the next Phase, so you can save any excess. Therefore, the more Mirium you collect, the easier it will be during the next Phase because with each new Phase, the amount of Mirium required for teleportation increases. Take your time to complete each Phase and maximize your advantage!
With each new Phase, it will be harder to survive as the enemies will become stronger and battles with them will sap more and more of your strength. Visibility will also get worse due to the dense fog that thickens over the town with each subsequent Phase.
During each Phase, you may encounter an anomaly—a special entity that appears after you have destroyed or damaged some enemies. Once activated, the anomaly increases a certain characteristic of your tank, granting bonuses until the end of the battle or until your vehicle is destroyed. Anomalies teleport with you from Phase to Phase throughout the battle. But while their effects stack, they don’t apply to other players’ tanks. Don’t forget about them, especially during the first Phases—they will greatly help you on your dangerous journey.
Discover the Secrets of Mirny-13!
Together with Mirium, pieces of the story of Mirny-13 (Testimonies) will randomly drop from some of the defeated enemies. Collect them to combine the disparate elements into a single picture and solve the enigma of the forbidden town.
A Master’s Touch
This year, we teamed up with Ito Masahiro, the art director of the first three Silent Hill games, and Akira Yamaoka, a world-famous video game music composer and sound designer. He also worked as a producer on the Silent Hill series, as well as served as a composer.
Both legendary masters were directly involved in the development of the Halloween mode. Ito Masahiro had a hand, among other things, in the design of the supernatural enemies, while Akira Yamaoka collaborated closely with our sound team to create a spooky yet captivating soundtrack. Expect to see spectacular visuals and your favourite tanks as you’ve never seen them before, all while listening to some of the most immersive music in World of Tanks!
Speaking of Ito Masahiro’s contributions to the Halloween mode, we must mention three gorgeous 3D styles for German tanks ( VIIIPanther II , the IXE 50 , and the XE 50 Ausf. M ), created with the participation of this iconic game developer. They will be available for gold throughout the event right in your Halloween Garage. You will also have the opportunity to get a fourth spectacular 3D custom look for the XLeopard 1 .
In this mode, five familiar vehicles specially prepared for survival in the extreme conditions of Mirny-13 will be available. The following vehicles will be instantly available in the mode’s Garage:
- Hornet: a speedy and maneuverable light tank with an autoloader
- Cerberus: a versatile medium tank with a solid turret and high rate of fire
- Goliath: a menacing heavy tank with high alpha damage and good speed
You will also have the opportunity to roll into battle in two even more formidable vehicles:
- Malachite: a medium tank with increased durability and accelerated repair of damaged modules
- Grenadier: a light tank featuring an accurate HE autoreloader
You can access these vehicles by completing special combat missions in the mode. You can also access them immediately for gold or when buying one of our in-game bundles.
Each tank has its own gameplay features. You can unlock these great armored hunters by completing special combat missions (more on them below) in the mode or get them immediately using gold or by purchasing special bundles. As a nice bonus for players, the Commanders of these two armored explorers will receive additional Commander XP and Coins (read about them below) at the beginning of the battle.
Since Mirny-13 has a very high level of electromagnetic radiation, the Commander of the tank in which you played needs time to recover from acute radiation poisoning after each battle. That means the vehicle won’t be available for battle for some time*.
However, you can instantly recover your vehicle’s Commander by using credits to purchase a Stimulant. The cost of purchasing each Stimulant will be higher than the previous one. You can also earn more Stimulants by completing special daily missions in Random Battles. Some of these daily missions will reward you with Commander Experience Boosters, which are boosters that activate before heading into battle. They double your Commander XP for that battle. You can get Commander Experience Boosters as part of event bundles or by purchasing them individually.
To increase your chances of survival in Mirny-13 and to fight enemies more effectively, be sure to use special consumables. 2 types of Team consumables (giving bonuses to you and the entire team) and 4 types of Personal consumables (giving bonuses to only your tank) will be available.
The use of both types of consumables is limited by the cooldown that begins after their effect is over.
Also, by default, all players will have a passive Phoenix ability. Like the mythical bird, your destroyed tank will rise again in the next Phase with 50% of its initial HP, as long as your allies manage to complete the current Phase. In addition, after teleporting to the next Phase, you and your allies will each recover 50% of their initial HP.
At the end of the battle, you get rewards in the form of credits, XP, and Free XP. The higher the difficulty, the more credits and XP you earn, and the faster you can upgrade your Commander.
Depending on the amount of Mirium collected, you will get Commander XP to upgrade the Commander of your vehicle. From battle to battle, their level will increase, and for each new level achieved, you will receive the event’s currency—Coins.
The Commanders of the Malachite and the Grenadier earn more Coins at the start of the battle. Starting from Level 5, all vehicles earn the same number of Coins.
You can exchange Coins for exclusive 3D styles and other stuff in the event store. Styles will be complemented by unique custom crew members as New Recruits who you can move to any tank in your Garage. Five tanks are available during the event, so you can get five cool 3D styles and five custom crew members with enough XP to learn three perks.
Three types of combat missions are available in the mode:
- Daily Missions
- Missions for Commitment (cumulative missions)
- Missions for Mastery (domination missions)
You will also have access to daily missions in Random Battles to earn Stimulants and Commander Experience Boosters.
Each new mission will unlock, in succession, when the previous mission of its type is completed.
- Daily Missions earn credits and are available once a day.
- Completing the Missions for Commitment will reward you with Coins and a special badge. They will also unlock the Grenadier, a light tank featuring an HE autoreloader.
- Having completed the Missions for Mastery, you will receive Coins, another cool badge, event style elements*, and an additional unique 2D custom look for Random Battles. Fulfilling these missions will also unlock the Malachite, a versatile medium tank.
The main rewards of the most supernatural event in World of Tanks are:
- 5 exclusive 3D styles for the five great tanks that served as prototypes for the combat vehicles in this mode:
IXAMX 13 90
IXCenturion Mk. 7/1
They can be purchased in the event store using Coins earned by completing combat missions.
