Tensions Rise in World of Tanks with Kennedy’s War
Kennedy’s War, the newest War Stories campaign in World of Tanks will be available on October 17 and is going to be free-to-play for all PS4, PS4 Pro, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and upcoming Xbox One X users. War Stories, the first campaign series to be added to the World of Tanks franchise, made its debut in August exclusive to console, enriching the tanking experience with single player and co-op stories.
The Kennedy’s War campaign puts players on the frontline of annihilation in an alternate history version of the Cuban Missile Crisis. The United States and the Soviet Union stand on the brink of war when Soviet forces install nuclear missiles in Cuba to counter a US invasion, creating a nuclear stalemate.
Tankers will command SGT Dale Reece of the US Army in the War Stories exclusive 2506 Tank, a variation of the M41 Bulldog. To successfully avert the pending disaster, players will need to work with allies to repel Soviet advances, and effectively disarm the nuclear threat in the final battle to prevent a devastating war.
Kennedy’s War is the fourth War Story to be released following Brothers in Armor, Flashpoint Berlin and Operation Sealion. Together they offer players of World of Tanks on console not only a diverse single/coop experience, but well written and engaging storylines to play through as well. In addition to releasing Kennedy’s War, the development team from Wargaming Chicago is about to finalize the latest incarnation of World of Tanks. This update will allow players to witness tank battles in stunning 4K resolution and HDR with Microsoft’s upcoming next generation console and World of Tanks will be a launch title when the Xbox One X releases in early November.
Check out the Trailer:
Fidel Castro’s revolution in Cuba has placed a Communist state at America’s doorstep, and the failure of the Bay of Pigs Invasion by pro-US insurgents has given Nikita Khrushchev the opening he needs to establish a base for nuclear missiles and bombers off the southeast coast of the United States. President John F. Kennedy, not wanting to appear weak after the Bay of Pigs failure and under pressure to resist “dominos” in Southeast Asia, takes a hard line against Khrushchev and opposes the Cuban nuclear build-up with military force. The US uses its Guantanamo base to send an armed contingent to destroy the missile bases, but the Soviets counter-attack.
A cold war turns hot in this face-off between the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics and the United States of America. Take command of the US forces as they play a deadly game of nuclear brinkmanship.
