It's pretty rare that something announced by a game developer comes out earlier than expected, but that's the case with World of Tanks' latest release. Well, with the release of a World of Tanks comic book, that is. I guess it didn't need much beta testing.
The first issue (of five) of World of Tanks: Roll Out will hit comic stores and Dark Horse Digital tomorrow, Aug. 31, a little ahead of its announced "fall" release window. Written by Garth Ennis and illustrated by Carlos Ezquerra with cover art by Isaac Hannaford,
Roll Out follows a crew of young British tankers as they push deeper into post-D-Day Normandy, toward a battalion of seasoned German armored units. Flanked and tracked by the Germans at almost every turn, the inexperienced British tankers traverse a battle-scarred France while the danger around them escalates and the outcome of the war hangs in the balance.
To commemorate the comic in-game, Wargaming will offer a special British Cromwell tank based on the "main character" of the comic. The "Snakebite" tank comes with the Snakebite Crew Skill, which improves overall accuracy. Three Snakebite-themed bundles will be available.
