Tank football returns to World of Tanks for the World Cup

The World Cup, I have been reliably informed, is very much going on at the moment, pitting nation against nation in a desperate battle to become Football King for the next four years. Normally, it’s a humans-only sporting event, with FIFA banning animals, household appliances and even tanks from participating. Wargaming has corrected the latter, at least, by once again kicking off a summer of…

Splash Damage working with World of Tanks company on something warnew

Splash Damage, the studio behind Enemy Territory and Dirty Bomb, have joined forces with the World of Tanks/Warplanes/Warships lords at Wargaming to work on "new gaming experiences". No specific game is announced yet but huh, I am always curious to see what Splash Damage do. It seems not impossible that Splash Damage might make some sort of objective-driven multiplayer FPS in the Enemy Territory mould,…

MOO! Master Of Orion Reboot Leaves Early Access

If that seems a familiar title, it's because our last story about sci-fi 4X remaequel Master of Orion [official site] was headlined "MOO! Master Of Orion Reboot Enters Early Access". I thought it only right to symmetrically bookend this tale, if only to please some weird compulsive part of my brain when I look at the tag page. Sadly though, that means I have omitted…

World Of Tanks Publisher Working On Master Of Orion

I'd entirely forgotten that Wargming.net, publisher of the World of WarVehicles games, had acquired the rights to the Master of Orion and Total Annihilation licenses back in 2013, so when the news of a Master of Orion reboot arrived this morning I was taken aback. "What?" I said. "Who?" I didn't ask why though because I can fully understand the desire to revisit one of…

Capture Tank Flag: World Of Tanks Domination Mode

World of Tanks [official site] is hardly a simulator, but if you fancy pootling around in tank battles that are a little more arcadey, you're in luck. Developers Wargaming have kicked off the free-to-play game's Domination event, which for one month adds a new mode that has tanks zooming around trying to capture flags, with respawning, repair and ammo pickup points, nae friendly fire, and…

War Games: Meet The World’s Best World Of Tanks Team

From a two-day event of brutality and tough but somehow sensual tank action has emerged a single victor. Wargaming [official website] has announced the winners of its official Dudes Who Are The Best Ever At Playing World Of Tanks award, better known as the Grand Finals Champions of Wargaming eSports Poland 2015. The winner is a group of Russia-born lads called HellRaisers.

World Of Tanks Generals Card Game Closed Beta Opens

Where Blizzard tread, so the world follows - which I suppose is good news if you like digital card games based on existing multiplayer franchises. World of Tanks Generals [official site] is specifically good news if you like tanks and if the existing free-to-play shooter hasn't yet sated your appetite for making them fight. It's a turn-based, one-on-one, free-to-play card game in the same mold…

Sink Your Battleship: World Of Warships Beta Weekend

World of Warships was the game I found most surprising at last year's Gamescom, because it seemed unclear how Wargaming.net's fast-paced, competitive formula from Worlds of Tanks and Warplanes would translate to the slow, maritime maneuvering of carrier fleets. In practice, it felt fairly straightforward: make 'em faster, make 'em mouse controlled, and begin with a focus on PvE. If you want to try it…

Interview: Victor Kislyi On Wargaming In A Single Breath

I've interviewed a lot of CEOs over the past ten years, and while they each project the same unnatural, media-trained sangfroid, they're each different, too. Victor Kislyi, CEO of Wargaming, seems like one of the most genuine human beings I've seen in the role. His enthusiasm for his job is palpable. I asked him a single question at this year's Gamescom and he spoke for…

World Of Warships Hands-On: Overcoming Skepticism

World of Tanks makes sense. It's Counter-Strike with moveable turrets; angry houses hiding behind placid houses, streets like corridors, cannons like machineguns, machineguns also like machineguns. World of Warplanes makes sense, sort of, on paper. Planes. They're like tanks but they fly. Except there's no cover in the sky, and enemies could be in front, behind, beside or above you. So you sort of just…

Gunners For Goalposts – World of Tanks: Football Edition

Given its low media coverage, limited popularity and remote location, you might be forgiven for not knowing that the FIFA World Cup of foot-to-ball football soccer begins today. But it does - this very afternoon! I guess someone at Wargaming.net must have fortuitously discovered the information while browsing Wikipedia, because they've found the time to put together a special Football Battles mode for World of…

Hi Sky! World Of Warplanes Out Of Beta Next Month

The only bad thing I can see about World Of Warplanes coming out of beta is that it signals an end of innocence for all children. After seeing the free sky sorties that Wargaming's free-to-play action game is capable off, there will be no more childhood games of 'Spitfire', where kids run around with their arms out pretending to be planes, and occasionally gob on…

Atari Auction Implies New Chris Taylor’s Total Annihilation

Everything is in place for Chris Taylor to make a sequel to Total Annihilation, thanks to Wargaming picking up the Total Annihilation IP in a recent auction of Atari properties. Taylor, of course, came under the armoured umbrella the World Of Tanks company when they purchased Gas Powered Games earlier this year. By connecting the inevitabilities, we can see what needs to happen here. Wargaming…

Free Shells: Wargaming.net Scrap Pay To Win

Wargaming.net believe that war should take place on a level playing field. Money may make the world go round but it won't buy you any extra-powerful rounds for your weaponry, whether those weapons be attached to tanks, planes or automobiles ships. In an interview with Gamasutra, Andrei Yarantsau, VP of publishing at the Belarusian behemoth, stated that the World of Tanks and other forthcoming titles,…

World Of Thanks: Wargaming Buys Gas Powered Games

The strange, sad story of Chris Taylor's Gas Powered Games in 2013 has taken another unexpected twist - and now we know what the hinted-at future for the deeply troubled Supreme Commander developer is. Increasingly omnipresent Belarus developer/publisher Wargaming.net, best know for the remarkably successful World of Tanks, has stepped in to buy up what's left of the Dungeon Siege studio.

The British Are Coming! World Of Tanks Stiffens Upper Lip

I was thinking, seeing that World Of Tanks has unveiled its 8.1 update with accompanying video, that this isn't a Halloweeny thing. What are they doing releasing it today? And then it occurred to me: tanks are actually scary. Ghosts and monsters may be the more traditional source of chills, but their overall efficacy at being frightening is somewhat limited by their not existing. Tanks…

Wuh Oh: PlaySpan Got Hacked, World Of Tanks Affected

You're familiar with the routine by now. If you've got a World Of Tanks account and bought anything, to be sure change your password, and any passwords associated with it. And if you're still not using unique passwords per account, go change all the others too. PlaySpan, the software World Of Tanks uses for financial transactions in WoT and a thousand other games, has been…

Magic: The Tankening – World Of Tanks Generals

Huh, this one sort of came out of nowhere. You know World of Tanks? The game with all the explosions and tactical action and worlds and tanks? Well, it's a collectible card game now. Or rather, Wargaming's releasing an F2P TCG extension of the absurdly popular mechanized carnage semi-sim, because why not? These sorts of things tend to be pretty hit-or-miss, of course, but as…
