With the film having slowly trundled into cinemas yesterday, the chances are you may have heard at least a little bit about the new WW2 tank flick, Fury. Kicking things off with a bang, starring Brad Pitt, a Sherman, a Tiger tank, and a big field full of mud, it's a WW2 epic about the harsh reality of life as a tank crew - and the incredible conditions the men would have had to endure. Having gained some pretty impressive reviews, it's well worth a look if you're in to anything war related - but Fury doesn't just stop on the silver screen. Through a partnership with Wargaming, the creators of the online multiplayer tank shooter World of Tanks, you can check out the stars of the silver screen, both virtually, and in real life.
At the start of this week, Bovington Tank Museum in Dorset unveiled its brand new, Wargaming sponsored Fury exhibition, chronicling the museum's involvement in the film. As the home of the two real stars of the film - the Sherman M4, and the world's only working Tiger 131 tank, the exhibit lets you get up close and personal with the stars of the film, and see for yourself just how cramped - and terrifying - it must have been to be trapped inside them, with someone trying to blow seven bells out of you. Along with various other props, behind-the-scenes photos, and costumes from the film, the exhibit also packs several gaming stations, where you can get hands-on with World of Tanks for yourself.
On the virtual front, Wargaming have also struck a deal to see the tanks from the film appear in game. Available now in World of Tanks on PC, World of Tanks: Xbox 360 Edition, and World of Tanks Blitz on iOS, the Fury Premium Pack includes a Premium Sherman M4A3E8 Fury - a Tier VI medium tank, with all the benefits of a premium vehicle (a crew XP bonus, better equipment than standard, etc) - a garage slot, and 2,500 in game gold for $29.99.
And to celebrate the launch of the film, the opening of the exhibition, and the release of the tank in-game, we've got a fantastic prize to give away - including a trip to see the stars of Fury for yourself!
