August 13, 2018 – World of Tanks: Mercenaries, the global gaming phenomenon enjoyed by over 15 million players on PlayStation 4 and Xbox, is taking over Chicago’s Cantigny Park on September 15, 2018, for a massive fan event, which promises to bring tons of fun activities for locals and fans alike!

Wargaming will host multiple gaming stations at the park where attendees can jump into over 690 different metal monsters from over 10 nations and duke it out on Mercenaries’ digital battlefields. The game’s Chicago-based development team, Wargaming West, will also host special presentations during the event. Attendees can look forward to getting a greater insight into the development process, talk to the creators of one of the world’s most popular free-to-play console games and maybe even get a sneak peek at what the future of Mercenaries holds…

The Cantigny Park gathering will also offer something special to those in attendance! In-game codes and merchandise will be given out to fans and visitors throughout the event via raffles, giveaways and in-game competitions, so keep an eye out during the event to make sure you don’t miss out on your chance to win some fantastic Wargaming and World of Tanks: Mercenaries swag.

But wait, there’s more! As part of the event, visitors can enjoy private tours of the newly-redesigned First Division Museum, a fixture of Cantigny Park dedicated to the United States Army’s 1st Infantry Division. These tours will offer an exciting opportunity to check out a collection of real-world tanks, including the M41A3 Walker Bulldog, the M46 Patton, the T26E4 Pershing and many more.

Wargaming is planning a day packed with fun activities for the whole family, including races, tank-themed sporting events, an obstacle course, a tank building and coloring station for children, and an area where you can decorate a cardboard tank. Outdoor activities are dependant upon the weather, but our fingers are firmly crossed for sunshine and blue skies!

For anyone who can’t make the event, there will be social media contests and giveaways through the Wargaming social channels throughout the gathering. Enter to win using the hashtag #WargamingCantigny.

The first 200 people to confirm their attendance at the player gathering will receive some special Wargaming goodies and in-game codes. To RSVP to this event, visit the following page:
