[This unedited press release is made available courtesy of Gamasutra and its partnership with notable game PR-related resource GamesPress.]

April 30, 2020 — Operation Onslaught, a brand-new battle pass made up of 40 different stages, is coming to World of Tanks Blitz. Players will be tasked with completing battle missions to earn stamps (used to progress through the stages), while also receiving great rewards. Tankers will be able to enjoy four weeks of fun as Battle Pass runs from May 1st to May 29th.

Two versions of the campaign exist: Free and Premium. The Free Battle Pass campaign rewards players with a collection of in-game items when certain milestones are met. These rewards include: Days of Premium Account, Gold, Credits, Free XP, Avatars, Camos, and certificates for vehicle research, which provide a 25% XP discount for Tier VIII, IX and X vehicles.

The Premium Battle Pass is available for $5 and rewards are given out for every stage completed, two of which are the British Tier IV light tank, Covenanter, and Thunder, the Soviet Tier VI heavy. Both the Free and Premium Battle Passes can be completed at the same time, so players can harvest even more rewards.

Two New Vehicles from the Girls und Panzer Universe Head for World of Tanks Blitz

The cross-platform battlefield will hold host to the Firefly Saunders SP and the IS-2 Pravda SP

April 30, 2020 — With Golden Week on the horizon, World of Tanks Blitz and Bandai Namco are preparing something extra special. Furthering their ongoing collaboration, the universes of Girls und Panzer and World of Tanks Blitz are coming together once again with two brand-new vehicles entering the fray. Known to those who love the world-renowned anime and Blitz players alike, these tanks are ready to battle on the cross-platform battlefields.

Exclusive to World of Tanks Blitz, the duo are the Firefly Saunders SP and the IS-2 Pravda SP.


  • The Firefly Saunders SP: Commanded by the gum-chewing Naomi in the anime, this is the first tank from the Saunders University High School to join World of Tanks Blitz. A British medium, it boasts the most accurate gun and the highest penetration among its Tier VI brethren.
  • The IS-2 Pravda SP: A representative of Pravda Girls High School and a staple in Nonna’s fleet, this Soviet vehicle is a perfect mix of armor, maneuverability and firepower.

Both vehicles will be added to the game on April 29.


And that’s not all from the Girls und Panzer collaboration this month. The three GuP vehicles that are already in the game are getting reinforcements, but in a rather unusual way: in-game avatars. For the very first time, players will now be able to have Nishizumi Miho, Kadotani Anzu and Nishizumi Maho command their Pz.IV Anko SP, Hetzer Kame SP and Tiger Kuromorimine SP, respectively.
