Reward Highlights and Season Pass Info

The Year of the Dragon season starts on Tuesday, January 30th, and runs through Monday, March 25th.

You can choose one of three paths to follow in order to earn season rewards and content:

  • Free Rewards
  • Season Pass Rewards
  • Ultimate Season Pass Rewards

Every tank commander automatically receives rewards from the Free Rewards path; there’s nothing special you need to do to begin your progress! Additionally, at any point in the season, you can get a Season Pass or Ultimate Season Pass to receive the rewards you’ve earned up to that point.

You can find all the reward details broken down by level in the “Seasons” tab in game. Once there, you can also see any season Challenges available. Finish these to earn the points you need to complete each of the season’s 100 levels.

If you already own any of these three vehicles, you’ll receive their Silver value as compensation once you complete their associated level:

But we know that your ambition also drives you to seek novel rewards. Arriving in the game this season are two new tanks: a versatile Cold War medium tank with a powerful gun, and a World War II heavy tank with a three-round autoloader.
