Massively Multiplayer Online Tank Action Game: No More Orcs-and-Elves
London (16th February 2010) – Wargaming.net announces the company is developing WORLD OF TANKS, a brand-new free-to-play MMO game based on massive numbers of armored battles.
In WORLD OF TANKS 30-player teams are fighting action-packed PvP battles. The game features more than 150 armored fighting vehicles from the pre-WW2 era up to the Korean War: light, medium, heavy and super heavy tanks, tank destroyers, self-propelled howitzers and rocket artillery. The game includes American, German and Soviet tanks.
Ride the legendary Tiger tank, or choose the fast-and-furious Soviet T-34, practice your sharp-shooting skills with the American 155mm M40 Gun Motor Carriage or try experimental/prototype machines such as the Germany’s monstrous Maus tank. A Player can have an endless number of tanks in “garage”, and all machines can be upgraded in dozens of ways: better turrets, chassis, guns, engines, radios, various ammunition types, plus tank crew members can be leveled up as well.
The game offers fast random battles featuring various modes, historic mini-campaigns, tourneys and epic Clan Wars on a global map, where mighty clans fight for hundreds of provinces employing grand strategy, diplomacy and economic power. Besides individual tank-ace skills, WORLD OF TANKS requires team work and a fine balance between light and heavy armor. WORLD OF TANKS gives you thousands of ways of building your Steel Empire and manifesting the indisputable authority of TANK POWER!
“A wise gentleman once observed that men had the same relationship to tanks, as women to SPA treatments: an all-eclipsing love, hardwired into the genes,” says Victor Kislyi, CEO of Wargaming.net, “That’s why we are coming up with Panzer MMO.”
The game will be available as a free download and is expected to be released in Fall 2010. This product is not yet rated by PEGI and ESRB.
