The World Cup is in full swing and fans everywhere are happily soaking in all the action and really getting into the spirit — and in the case of some video games, holding special events. Among the games doing just that is Heavy Metal Machines. The game’s developer Hoplon announced a special World Cup themed event today — The Heavy Metal Cup.
During the event, players will be able to obtain items and skins. Once acquired, these items will be the player’s forever, but they can only be earned or purchased during the event. The items include:
The Bomb – the very heart of every Heavy Metal Machines match – will be reskinned to become a football for the duration of the event.
The character Wildfire will receive a new skin, based on the current World Cup logo. To earn this skin, players must team up between the 19th and 26th of June and complete 15 matches in the same group.
The character Rampage will receive a skin based on the Russian flag.*
The character Clunker will receive a skin based on the French flag.*
The character Stingray will receive a skin based on the Polish flag.*
The character Windrider will receive a skin based on the Brazilian flag.*
*Please note that these skins are only available via in-game transactions. More details can be found on Steam.
Full details on the event and how to purchase skins are available on Steam.
