The Offspring will play a virtual concert inside a video game starting later this week. Beginning on Wednesday (September 18th), fans will be able to watch a virtual performance by the veteran punk act within World Of Tanks, the popular shooter game and simulation of online multiplayer tanks. Within the game map, there will be a stage on which the band will perform in concert. The band tweeted, “We’re excited to announce that @worldoftanks has invited us to perform inside their game. 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 10th studio 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.
