Cross-media partnerships are fairly common on the App Store, and when your game is something as fantastical as Puzzles & Dragons, it’s not that hard to justify a Batman or Hello Kitty crossover. But when you’re built around authentic military action? That gets a little tougher.
Still, that doesn’t mean it’s impossible. The folks at Wargaming.net have partnered with Sony Pictures to promote their upcoming World War 2 tank epic (starring the ever-handsome Brad Pitt), FURY. Effective immediately, players can purchase “the M4A3E8 “Fury,” a tier VI Premium medium tank from the American line,” or so a recent World of Tanks Blitz blog post describes it.
The tank will set you back a whopping $14.99, but you’ll also get an extra garage slot and 1,050 gold of in-game currency. You can also expect “exclusively tailored missions and items.” It looks like Wargaming.net is really going all in on this one.
Enjoy it while you can – if Wargaming.net is looking to keep things authentic, it might be a while before we see another tank movie that matches the World of Tanks brand.
FURY will be in theatres October 17th. You can check out the trailer here.
