World of Tanks released

World of Tanks released

Tanks, diesel, explosions and mud are all that a growing boy needs.

Fed up with crossing endless wastelands and green prairies only to have to battle yet another clich├ęd orc, elf or dragon?

Then you'll be pleased to hear that the MMO, World of Tanks, which has been in beta for the last nine months, has finally gone public today.

World of Tanks puts you in the commander's seat of a World War II-era armoured fighting vehicle, in which you'll have to fight for battlefield supremacy in 30-player battles. You can command light scout tanks, medium battle tanks, heavy sluggers, self-propelled artillery or sneaky tank destroyers.

Each type of vehicle has also its own strength and weaknesses, all of which feature accurate modelling based on their real-life counterparts.

To celebrate the release of the game we'll be published our exclusive interview with the developer of World of Tanks, Wargaming.net, later today.

Will you be playing World of Tanks? Did you take part in the beta testing? Let us know your thoughts in the forums.

I'm looking forward to the real game.

But I'm pretty disapointed that they made it a 1000 beta games to get the beta tester tank. After getting to 790 I feel a bit cheated.

Oooh I didn't think it was released until Friday.

I played the Beta for 7 months and all in all think is a great game. I just think that the gold costs too much. It been a major shock going back to a Tier 1. Will see how I go for the next few weeks and will either decide to buy gold or give it up. Anyone know any other decent betas to get involved with.

"To celebrate the release of the game we'll be published our exclusive interview with the developer..."

Sorry to nitpick, but this should be 'we'll be publishing' or something to that effect.

Sounds like a great game. I was researching some german super-tank design which weighed about 1500 tonnes. Would they have this in the game?

The Landkreuzer P. 1000 Ratte you mention isn't in WoT, and if it was it would be near useless, but there is a super-heavy tank prototype, the Maus, which weighs in at just over 200 tons.

However, like its real-life counterpart its also pretty useless...

It's wont cost you a penny to try it, in fact you could play it without ever coughing up any dough so you have nothing to lose.

game is free to play, but if you want anything decent to play then it will cost you either a very long time in hours to achieve the tank or you will use premium to get there quicker (premium is gold = money you pay for).

Nice game, shame about the god like moderators.
