G.I. Joe x World of Tanks collaboration kicks off today

One of the most popular toy lines in history makes its debut in Wargaming's tank MMO.


2021 has provided one hot collaboration after another. Last week, we saw Shovel Knight and Arby’s form a tag team and now some of the biggest stars of the 1980s are headed for one of the biggest MMOs. G.I. Joe, one of the most popular toy lines of all time, is headed for World of Tanks in an all-new partnership.

We reported late last year about the inclusion of 80s action heroes John Rambo, Snake Plissken, and Colonel James Braddock into the World of Tanks universe. It seems players of the action MMO can’t get enough of that nostalgic 80s action, so the heroes and villains from G.I. Joe are now making their own appearance in-game.

What can players expect from this mashup of action monsters? The most important details are as follows:

  •  G.I. JOE & COBRA TANKS: World of Tanks players can take command of the newly introduced G.I. Joe B.T.T. (Breakthrough Tank) and the Cobra B.O.A (Battle Operational Assault) vehicles. 
  • G.I. JOE COMMANDERS: Duke and Cobra Commander can now be recruited as crew captains.
  • G.I. JOE CUSTOMIZATION 1: Adorn any tank with the retro crimson Cobra Snake Head and the Red, White, and Blue G.I. Joe logos.
  • G.I. JOE CUSTOMIZATION 2: Embrace more nostalgia with decals for the original G.I. Joe M.O.B.A.T. (Multi-Ordinance Battle Tank) and the COBRA H.I.S.S (High-Speed Sentry) vehicles as depicted in the original packaging art.

The full details of the World of Tanks and G.I. Joe collaboration can be found on the official World of Tanks website.
