Arnold Schwarzenegger and Milla Jovovich in World of Tanks
11/25/2022 - For the first time in history, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Milla Jovovich will be on screen together! Later this December, the Hollywood stars will join players in holiday ops in World of Tanks on PC, mobile and console. The holiday season is heating up in World of Tanks PC, World of Tanks Blitz and World of Tanks Modern Armor!
In the Holiday Ops trailer, Arnie and Milla undertake the most important mission yet - to save the holidays for Arthur and his son Mikey. Players join them in World of Tanks on the magical Christmas Express train that takes them to the heart of Christmas Village.
"I've played the heroine in video game movies, but this is the first time I've been put in a real game myself, and I'm ready for action!" said Milla Jovovich, Holiday Ops Ambassador and action star. "Another first for me is that I'm teaming up with the legendary Arnold Schwarzenegger. With him by my side, we will take players to a magical Christmas village and deliver special gifts to players in World of Tanks."
"Last year I had an incredible experience with World of Tanks, and when I was asked if I would participate again, I immediately replied, 'I'll be back.' I knew this year's event would be really special - and I was right. I'm honored to be playing alongside the amazing Milla Jovovich, and the first time we've been able to work together. The holiday ops rewards and challenges are even better this time around, and I get to combine two of my favorite things: the holidays and tanks," added Arnold Schwarzenegger, holiday ops ambassador, action star and tank owner.
Tank players will first encounter the blockbuster duo in the garage, where they will assign them challenges and missions. As players complete these tasks, they will receive customized items from Arnie and Milla such as tank skins, themed emblems, inscriptions, decals and commanders. Milla and Arnold's voice performances will be heard in World of Tanks for PC and console.
Christopher Chung, World of Tanks franchise director, said it is an honor to have Arnold and Milla on screen together for the first time in World of Tanks history.
"Like many of our millions of players around the world, I have watched movies starring Arnie and Milla for decades. It's truly a dream come true to team up with these two global stars in our first-ever franchise-wide holiday ops. There will be something special for our players no matter what platform they enjoy World of Tanks on," said Christopher.
The holiday events will begin on December 1 and run through January 9, 2023, with each game version having its own dates and holiday offerings tailored to the gameplay of each platform.
