A team of armoured tanks aka Tanksi’s woke up London as they stormed and invaded traditional taxi ranks. The 16 tonne Abbot tanks jammed through the streets of London passing Big Ben, Trafalgar Square, Westminster and even Buckingham Palace. The first ever Tanksi rank first appeared outside Waterloo Station to mark the launch of Battlefield 3. They made an explosive return to the capital today to offer lucky commuters a unique way to travel across London.
For the launch of Battlefield 3, GAME invaded London with their walking war memorial, The US marine went to famous London memorials and London landmarks.
Tom Goldberger from Battlefield 3 publishers Electronic Arts said: “Tanksis have been brought to the Capital to make the urban battlefield that is London’s roads more of a joy than the daily chore they currently are. We wanted to launch Battlefield 3 in style and are looking forward to ferrying excited game fans and commuters around the city today.”
Battlefield 3 is released today and is available on Playstation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.
