The Lunar New Year is upon us, the year of the Metal Ox, and as is usually the case with any type of major holiday mobile game updates highlighting the Lunar New Year celebrations are flowing in the App Store. The World of Tanks series is no stranger to this, and while they’ve got some interesting stuff going on in the mainline World of Tanks on PC, it’s really the mobile-centric World of Tanks Blitz that we concern ourselves with around these parts. This year’s Lunar New Year update for World of Tanks Blitz features a special Lunar Rising event running from February 10th through 19th where you’ll earn red envelopes for scoring victories and then you’ll be able to exchange those red envelopes for all sorts of goodies, including a freaking sweet pink camo tank skin.
Alongside the Lunar Rising event, this coming weekend World of Tanks Blitz will be having a Lunar Weekend that will feature special bonuses and big discounts from February 12th to the 15th. This includes things like XP bonuses, discounts on tank upgrades, camos, attachments, and plenty more. For a full breakdown of what to expect from the Lunar Weekend head over to the World of Tanks Blitz blog for details. World of Tanks Blitz is one of the most popular competitive mobile games around, not to mention one of the best in terms of its fair free to play monetization model, and it has been doing its thing on mobile devices (and later on PC) for the better part of a decade now. If you somehow have not tried it out before now is a good time to rectify that with the Lunar New Year events taking place over the coming days.
