World of Warships developer and publisher Wargaming is kicking off the second-year return of its Longest Night of Museums initiative next week, "designed to publicize and support naval museums across the world." Starting on May 18, fans of the game can read through an article published by one of the participating museums and eventually decipher a code; the first one to figure it out wins an all-expenses-paid trip to an iconic museum of your choosing!
The "special bonus code" will be hidden to encourage fans to dive into the stories and histories behind each article. Curators from those museums will provide a list of "fascinating information, assets, and historical details." And as you know, the first person to crack the code gets a free trip guaranteed, which spans five days for two people at one of the museums.
Additionally, those articles will "feature embedded video footage of last year's Longest Night of Museums event," showing off the over 1.4 million viewers that attended the virtual tour with over 15 naval museums on Twitch and YouTube. It was a massive success for Wargaming and the company felt the need to continue its support for those museums in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. One of the participating institutions, Pearl Harbor Aviation Museum, shared its appreciation for the event from spokeswoman Elissa Lines:
“Longest Night of Museums is an incredible tribute to the valor of the men and women throughout history whose heroic actions in battle have shaped the world we live in today. We are proud to tell the Pearl Harbor story in this new and innovative way.”
As May 18 gets closer, keep your eyes on the World of Warships website to stay up-to-date on event details. Did you participate in the last Longest Night of Museums? Let's talk about it in the comments!
