THE OFFSPRING will play a virtual in-game show later this week.
Starting from September 18, fans will be able to watch a virtual performance of THE OFFSPRING within "World Of Tanks", the popular shooter game and simulation of online multiplayer tanks. Within the "World of Tanks" game map, there will be a stage on which the veteran Californian rock act will perform in concert.
"We're excited to announce that @worldoftanks has invited us to perform inside their game," the band tweeted on Sunday (September 15). "Beginning Sept 18 you can join us on a virtual stage right in #WorldofTanks. The game has never seen anything like this before, so we're excited to be the first!"
THE OFFSPRING is not the first rock band to play inside a game. A virtual version of KORN performed in the multiplayer video games AdventureQuest 3D and AQWorlds. The band played on stage as part of a special in-game event late last month.
THE OFFSPRING's long-awaited tenth album is tentatively due next year. The follow-up to 2012's "Days Go By" was once again produced by Bob Rock, who also worked on the band's last two LPs.
