Season VIII of Battle Pass, running from May 31 at 03:00 PT | 05:20 CT | 06:20 ET through August 30 at 00:30 PT | 02:30 CT | 03:30 ET, will bring the grim darkness of the far future of the Warhammer 40,000 universe to World of Tanks.
Completing the Chapters of Season VIII will bring iconic characters from the grim dark future to your side as tank commanders. The fates of these heroes are bound by an action-packed story revolving around a legendary technological artifact of a bygone age known as a Standard Template Construct (STC). The commanders' adventures and martial prowess will inspire you in battle, and their weapons and accessories will adorn the 3D styles inspired by the three Warhammer 40,000 factions they represent.
“I would rather see the ancient Standard Template Construct destroyed than fall into Xenos' or Traitors' hands, but I am not ready to resign the Imperium’s legacy to that fate without a concerted fight.”
“The discovery of a seemingly operational Standard Template Construct could be enough to accelerate our inevitable victory against the Corpse Emperor. It is high time we laid his followers low. Our Primarch, Mortarion, has plans to strike at the heart of our enemies. In time we will move upon Ultramar. Mortarion will make the Ultramarines' domain a mirror of the Grandfather's Garden.”
“I finks dat box might be full of 'umie gubbins. And you says it was blue? We'z all knows dat's a lucky color. Get me Gunwagon ready. We'z gonna race on back to da blue box fast as fast like, so we'ze ‘onor Mork. Den we'z krump 'em good so we'z make Gork smile. Dis might lead to a good scrap after all.”
While the setting of Season VIII of Battle Pass is quite new (at least for tankers not yet familiar with Warhammer 40,000), its well-known mechanics are tried and tested.
Plus, Season VIII will become the first during which you can accumulate enough Battle Pass Tokens to purchase the Cobra, a fearsome Tier IX British medium tank that packs quite a punch. "More rewards for the God of rewards," so to say.
Start your journey into Warhammer 40,000’s grimdark universe and prepare to overcome its mighty challenges, Commanders!
