UPDATE: We had a slight problem getting our codes so there will be a delay in getting those out. Good news is that we are now expecting 100 codes instead of just 21! World of Tanks will be released tomorrow! When we heard this news, we immediately imagined ourselves dispensing indiscriminate tank justice. You shouldn't be afraid to enter this free-to-play war either because zombie General Patton himself visited us today and gave us 21 starter packs that we will disperse to our fans. If you'd like to be one of the fortunate 21, and not end up as a flame broiled tank commander, read on for your chance to win.
The winners for our Worlds of Tanks giveaway have been picked. The developers surprised us by giving us 79 bonus codes, on top of the 21 we already had. So we're giving away 100 universal codes that work on both US and EU servers to 100 people selected from the original contest post. Look inside for the full list of winners.
If, deep down, you've always wanted to be a tank, then we've got good news. Wargaming.net's MMO World of Tanks is set for release in the UK and the US next month, on April 12. It's been in beta testing for nine months now, and it's already broken the record for the most people logged into one server, with more than 91,000 people playing at the same time. World of Tanks is primarily about player vs. player scraps, with a heavy emphasis on teamwork, and getting the precise build of your war machine right. The tanks themselves can be heavily customised with hundreds of unlockable upgrades. Everything from armour plating, to barrel size and ammunition type can be altered. For more on the game, check out the official World of Tanks website. There's a trailer below showing plenty of in-game action. Feel the tank power!
There's a new World of Tanks trailer out, showcasing the medium tanks. That's an odd thing to be called, though, isn't it? "I'm a big metal truck with a gun for a face, but I'm just a medium one." Tanks are weird, people.
Remember the medium tanks in World of Tanks? Those were pretty big tanks. They had great big guns and everything. These tanks are way bigger than those tanks. These are heavy tanks (well, heavier tanks). Here is some tank porn to prove it:
World of Tanks is looking to up its game in the coming year, and we’ll be lucky enough to have front row seats: the Wargaming developers will be releasing a series of new developer diaries to catalog improvements to the game. Changes will include new graphics, new vehicle physics, and more destructible and challenging environments.
Wargaming.net announce that they will be revealing a brand new project at Gamescom next month. It's surprising news given that they only recently unveiled World of Warplanes at this year's E3 conference. It's not clear yet whether the "project" will be a new game, or have anything to do with World of Tanks, all we know is that it's something wargaming.net "recently started to develop." We got a chance to catch up with Wargaming.net CEO Victor Kislyi recently at a tank festival. In the shadow of a looming Churchill we discussed the future of the wargaming.net and the World of... series. Kislyi said "we are thinking about Battleships."
We're giving away free tanks! Okay, not real tanks, but you could win a nice model tank and a snazzy internet tank! We've got four World of Tanks goodie bags full of stuff to give away, containing both real-world prizes and in-game items. Interested? Look inside.
World of Tanks is free to play online, but that doesn't mean it can't be boxed up and put on a shelf. Wargaming.net announce that World of Tanks will be hitting retail in Europe on December 2. The box will cost 10 Euros, and come with 20 Euros worth of bonus gubbins, including 50,000 in game credits and a premium German tank, the PzKpfw 38H735 (f), boasting word salad armour and a gun that shoots dictionaries.
Widely used by the Allies and Soviets during WWII, the Valentine proved to be a reliable tank early on in the war against Germany due to its small size and decent armor. And PC Gamer is letting you drive one of these lauded tanks in the upcoming free-to-play MMO World of Tanks. We're giving out closed beta codes to the first 50 people that ask for 'em. Even better, when you use our code to access the beta, you'll receive the Valentine tank to charge into battle with, and will be able to keep it after the game goes live! Full details below. Update 2: The contest is over. Stop emailing us.Update: Wow. I knew PC Gamer readers love tanks, but that was insane! Four minutes after posting this article, we'd already received 50 emails. So we're going to give away more! In addition to the first 50 recipients, we'll give away beta codes (with the tank) to 50 random people who email us before noon PST tomorrow.
This article was original published in PC Gamer UK 230. World of Tanks can be intimidating to the newcomer, so I decided I'd try to learn the ropes by grouping with a high level friend. This turned out to be a terrible mistake. The game generally has pretty good matchmaking, but our wildly different levels have confused this system. I’m put into a high tier game in a ‘Loltracktor’.
Multiplayer mechanised battler World of Tanks is getting a new update this week. The memorably named 8.11 patch brings a new map, new crew management features, and, most notably, Confrontation mode. In this, tanks forego the usual inter-nation free-for-all, instead becoming divided along territorial lines, with countries fighting countries in a match-up that's directly inspired by actual wars, probably.
World of Tanks is something of a misnomer. Yes, there are a lot of tanks, but a whole world of them? Not so much. The roster is expanding, though, with Wargaming announcing last week that Japan would become the seventh nation to join the increasingly absurd multi-cultural mechanical mayhem. Before you watch the teaser trailer, try to guess how many Japan-centric cliches it will include.
Recently, Wargaming.net announced that British tanks were coming to World of Tanks, it's an exciting time to be a Brit who's into blowing things up. To celebrate, Wargaming.net gave us a peek at their planned British army tech tree, and I've speculated a little about what we can expect from the Queen's own angry houses.
Update 7.0 is currently camping out on the World of Tanks test servers, waiting for its moment to explode from its camouflage net and frolic in the wide open fields of the public servers. It'll bring new maps, including FJORDS (thunderclap), and add tank camouflage and clan tags. There's still no release date, but Wargaming.net also promise some "tanksgiving" XP bonuses over the next few days. Keep an eye on the World of Tanks website for details.
We recently got the chance to catch up with Wargaming.net's CEO, Victor Kislyi about the monster success of World of Tanks, and what comes next: World of Warplanes, and possible further continuations of the series. Kislyi revealed that Wargaming.net are already thinking about where to go after World of Warplanes, suggesting that battleships are the obvious next direction. When asked why Wargaming.net decided to do Warplanes as their next game, Kislyi said it was down to the number of requests on the World of Tanks forums, and added that "when players talk about what they want us to do for the next game, of course they say battleships because there is a lot of Navy Field players playing our game that don't seem to believe in Navy Field 2."
World of Tanks update 7.0 has arrived, bringing two new maps and a camouflage system that will let tanks blend into their surroundings better, with different paint jobs for different battlefields. "camouflage will provide enhanced invisibility and add more to the strategic element of tank combat" reads the official description. Don't believe the official description? Check out the picture above. You might not believe it, but there's actually a tank cunningly hidden somewhere in that image. Spooky, I know.
