Join the Wargaming Team for the Premier of 'Fury'

Join the Wargaming Team for the Premier of 'Fury' - World of Tanks - MMORPG.com

Tomorrow marks the film debut of Brad Pitt's "Fury", a World War II tank picture. Wargaming and the World of Tanks team worked closely with the "Fury" film crew to ensure historical accuracy and tank authenticity. To mark the occasion, the World of Tanks team will be on hand for a special 'red carpet edition' live stream.

Mr. Jon Carnage from Twitch will be here hosting with us and we will have footage of him with celebrities from the red carpet premier, interviews with our historical consultant, giveaways and loads of fun along with gameplay from each supported title.

Sony Pictures approached Wargaming about the "Fury" collaboration after filmmakers recruited some of the same tank experts that the Cyprus-based game studio enlists to ensure accuracy in "World of Tanks." ''Fury" director David Ayer was on hand at Wargaming's Electronic Entertainment Expo booth this summer to preview footage from the movie.

Such cross-promotional efforts in Hollywood have long been considered to be more beneficial for games than films, but in an era where the latest installments in game franchises like "Halo" and "Call of Duty" are promoted with marketing budgets larger than many film releases, the Belarus-born Kislyi doesn't see the alliance with "Fury" the same way.

Join the Wargaming Twitch.tv stream from 12:00 - 3:00 p.m. PDT / 3:00 - 6:00 p.m. EDT on Friday, October 17th.
