Join the Mercenaries in War Stories: The Heist

The USA and USSR are working together on a secret nuclear project, and you're going to steal it. Welcome to the world of Mercenaries.

In a world beaten down by an endless war, where old allegiances mean nothing and everyone is out for themselves, what can you do but be your own hero? The Mercenaries universe gets off to a thrilling start with a new, blockbuster War Stories campaign: The Heist.

An action-packed tale of espionage, nuclear tensions, and epic tank battles, The Heist follows a motley crew of Mercenaries contracted to set up, execute, and escape from a raid on a secret facility. Their mission is to extract nuclear material on behalf of a shadowy agent, who harbors his own atomic ambitions. However, the facility is actually an unprecedented joint venture between the United States and the Soviet Union, and the contract soon proves to be the most dangerous one the crew has ever taken on.

Will the crew survive long enough to cash their checks? Follow the heart-pounding escapades of Don Quixote, The Collector, and Borscht at the helm of the story-exclusive Trinity tank, and fight off the might of the world’s two biggest superpowers in this explosive introduction to the universe of World of Tanks: Mercenaries.

A shadowy agent wants to jumpstart a secret nuclear program. To do so, he's hired a gang of Mercenaries to seize nuclear material from another secret nuclear program. Join the world of World of Tanks: Mercenaries, and follow Don Quixote, The Collector, and Borscht as they face off against the combined might of the United States and the Soviet Union, who have entered into an unprecedented yet deadly coalition. 

Can the Mercenaries follow their daring heist through until the end, or will the contract claim their lives?

Story-Exclusive Vehicle and Crew

There may be something familiar about the Mercenary Crew in War Stories: The Heist. All three heroes previously appeared in War Stories: Spoils of War, and decided to form their own mercenary gang at the end of their own individual adventures! In The Heist, they are now known as The CollectorDon Quixote, and Borscht, and they're taking on dangerous contracts in the pursuit of thrills and paychecks.

When enlisted by their mysterious contractor to steal nuclear material, they roll out with the Trinity, a powerful vehicle exclusive to War Stories: The Heist. The tank combines vehicle parts from German, American, and Soviet vehicles to create a unique, never-before-seen powerhouse that will definitely give the enemy a run for their money. With a huge weapon and a hardened crew at its helm, you should be more than equipped to take on this dangerous mission!
