Here’s something unexpected: the rock band Korn is teaming up with Wargaming for a Halloween event inside World of Tanks Blitz to premiere the music video for Korn’s new song “Finally Free.”
This is all happening as part of the new event called “Convergence,” which runs from October 16 through October 24. As part of the event, players can unlock pieces of Korn artwork by completing objectives, and the music video itself will premiere in the free-to-play game.
Korn signer Jonathan Davis said in a statement, “I really like World of Tanks Blitz. It’s true to the era, there are a lot of great tanks in there, and you don’t just jump in and start shooting. I think there is a connection between rock and video games because video games are intense and rock ’n’ roll music is intense. It seems like they have always gone hand in hand.”
The Convergence event also features a new mode called Burning Games. The Halloween hook is that every tank on the map will bleed health like a vampire, and you need to deal damage to your enemies to re-gain health. This mode ties into the Korn music video, which follows a person named Captain who is trying to attend the Burning Games event but is thwarted by wasteland raiders.
Korn is not the first rock band that has partnered with Wargaming for a World of Tanks event. The company previously worked with Iron Maiden and Sabaton for events, while The Offspring played a concert inside World of Tanks and performed a set at the Wargaming Fest in 2019.
World of Tanks Blitz’s Halloween event also features a 60-stage event called The Way of the Raider, while new vehicles featured in the Korn video, the Tier V Spike and the Tier VII Annihilator, will be available during the event.
