CONNEAUT — The developer of historical action game World of Tanks will be at D-Day Conneaut with 15 game stations running their game.
World of Tanks is an online game based around tank combat, with tanks from the 1920s to 1970s.
The developers will bring 15 computers. The developers are teaming up with Alienware and Cool Master for the computers and peripherals.
"We're thrilled to be coming back for the 75th Anniversary of Operation Overlord," Zachary Doig, Senior Manager of community and events at World of Tanks said.
"Sponsoring a massive living history event like D-Day Conneaut is the perfect opportunity for us on the World of Tanks team to further that goal and reach people who share that respect," Doig said.
Wargaming.net, the developer of World of Tanks, is a sponsor of D-Day Conneaut.
"At Wargaming, we make video games that feature historical military vehicles — so we do our best to respect and give back to the historical legacy of those vehicles and the men who crewed them," Doig said.
They will be holding several raffles for computer accessories throughout the event, Doig said. "(We) will have various opportunities for attendees to win Alienware Laptops, Cooler Master Keyboards and Mice, and some cool opportunities to do more at the event," he said.
"They bring a lot of things to the program that we don't normally have," Jim Snyder, vendor coordinator at D-Day Conneaut, said. "They got all kinds of new stuff they're doing. They've got virtual reality games ... where you play them on an iPad, and you're right on the beach, so it's a big deal."
