World Of Tanks Claims Important Number

Hmm. So we just read this: "Wargaming.net is glad to announce that the company’s MMO action game World of Tanks has set up the new world record for the maximum number of users playing concurrently on the same game server. The peak of 74,536 online players was recorded on January 5, 2011 by the Russian release version of World of Tanks." Which is interesting, I…

WoT! 500,000 Play World Of Tanks

This makes me feel happy in my armoured belly: tank-based pseudo-MMO World Of Tanks now boasts 500,000 subscribers. It's free, of course, but I think this should still be some kind of measure of success for the game. For something that is just about World War II tanks blowing each other up (and then refitting and upgrading themselves between explosioneering expeditions) this seems like a…

Land Of The Free: World Of Tanks

Land Of The Free is an ongoing look at the state of free-to-play gaming. It begins with the crackle of gravel as the tracks roll onward, running over that initial, hesitant silence. The sound slows, before stopping completely, and that’s when the low whine of the servos in the turret start to sing. There’s a clunk as it stops to regard its target. The pause,…

Positional Warfare: World Of Tanks

World Of Tanks seems to be making quite a following for itself. Half my old Eve corporation seem to be wrapped up in it, while RPS' own tanketeers are to be found organising and discussing their exploits over in this thread on the forum. It's quite literally a game of tanks. Small tanks with speed and agility, big tanks with guns like God's own howitzer.…

World Of Tanks Beta, Continued

We absolutely haven't posted enough about World Of Tanks, the free tank-battling game. Sorry about that. It's in beta at the moment, and is just about to launch into another round of testing after 70,000 people played in the first stage. I've not really spent enough time with it to feel confident of writing a preview, but the few hours I've had in the belly…

Eurogamer Hands On: World of Tanks

Anyone interested in upcoming tank battle MMO World of Tanks - yes, both of you - should skedaddle over to Eurogamer, who today uploaded my hands on impressions of the beta. The game's actually a bit good, with lots of tension and keeping your eyes peeled for the enemy and then Oh, Mercy, Would You Look At The Size Of Him, and then BANG and…

Oookaay: New World Of Tanks Trailer

The World Of Tanks closed beta is in motion, and Wargaming.net have put out a new trailer to celebrate (below). It's not a trailer I understand, however. Perhaps it's mocking the Blur adverts or something? I am tiny brain. Anyway, the more important consideration is: tanks a lot? Or tanks but no tanks? Ah, the pun barrel is hollow and oh so empty.

Interview: World Of Tanks (Yes!)

World Of Tanks! Three words that just make so much sense. It's a free-to-play MMO that's already doing well in Russian-language lands, is heading Westward. It really does sound splendid: a garage full of tanks, destructible surroundings, a global map for clans to fight over. But what of the details? Fortunately we've got some of those, right here. We recently spotted Mike Zhyvets, the game's…

World Of Tanks Cheers Me Right Up

Via the venerable BluesNews I spy that Wargaming.net have put out a new game-footage trailer for World Of Tanks. It's an MMO full of tanks. Will the tanks be able to wear different hats? We just don't know. What the trailer does confirm is a complex damage model and lots of trundling about blasting the crap out of each other. Go take a look, and…

Tanks, Not Like Orks: World Of Tanks

World Of Tanks is a free-to-play MMO with tanks. Wargaming.net explains: "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."…
