June 13, 2017 – Wargaming recently held its inaugural New Zealand Player Gathering in Wellington, in an effort to bring the local Wargaming player community together, through an insightful historical event.
Over 35 players from Wargaming’s Wellington player community were given the exclusive chance to attend the event which was held at the Dominion Museum.
Focusing on The Great War Exhibition created by master film-maker, Sir Peter Jackson, players were given insight into the historic events and were able to commemorate the role played by New Zealand in the First World War.
ANZ Country Manager, Travis Plane, said he was thrilled that players were able to see a piece of history brought to life.
“Video games often allow historical moments to gain new life by transporting players into interactive virtual worlds, and at Wargaming we pride ourselves on bringing history to life in our free-to-play games.
“We hope that by hosting these community events we can build greater relationships with our Kiwi players and continue to bring them more of what they want,” said Travis.
Greater involvement with the New Zealand player community has become an important focus for Wargaming.
“We value our player community and this is the first of many events, we are planning in future. For each community interaction, we hope to make it fun, interactive and educational, just like our games,” concluded Head of Player Experience APAC, Michael Mucci.
