SEGA and World of Tanks Blitz Bring a Roman God to the Battlefield
The fiery Vulcan from Valkyria Chronicles 4 is ready for battle
October 4, 2019 — Two giants of the gaming industry, Wargaming and SEGA, are back at it again as a new Valkyria Chronicles vehicle is ready to storm the battlefield in World of Tanks Blitz. A combination of two unique universes and a match made in tank heaven, Vulcan will bolster the Chronicles line up that already includes four other hero tanks plucked from SEGA’s critically acclaimed RPG series.
“Our community left us so much great feedback on the Valkyria Chronicles tanks that we knew we wanted to bring even more to the game,” states Andrey Ryabovol, Product Director, World of Tanks Blitz.
“Players kept asking whether we were going to continue our collaboration and we think we’ve brought it back with a bang! Based off an original design by the Valkyria Chronicles team, Vulcan is completely unique and our team created the vehicle from the ground up without using any existing tank model.”
Named after the Roman god of all things fiery (forging, metalworking and volcanoes), Vulcan serves under the 502nd Imperial Heavy Tank Battalion (also known as Ausbruch) in Valkyria Chronicles 4. In World of Tanks Blitz, Vulcan is joining the ranks of the heavies in the game’s exclusive Hybrid Nation, which features the greatest fantastical vehicles from artistic minds, Warhammer 40K and more.
In a nutshell, Vulcan combines solid armour, a powerful gun and good manoeuvrability, which will allow players to support the offensive, break through enemy lines and reduce those unlucky tanks caught in its sights to mere scrap metal.
To celebrate the new addition, all the Valkyria Chronicles compatriots will be available in World of Tanks Blitz from October 4 19.00 AEDT until October 18 19.00 AEDT.
