E3 2013: World of Tanks

When World of Tanks was announced as an XBOX One exclusive last week, it certainly made sense that the hugely successful vehicle shooter was moving to console.

With World of Tanks: Blitz already in production for the iPad, Wargaming's commitment to expanding their stable of titles across platforms makes the more to console a no-brainer.

World of Tanks Comes To The Xbox 360

Soon players will be able to experience team-based tactical warfare, the roaring of tanks, and the blasting of cannons right from a console. As announced at E3 this year the 60-million player PC sensation, World of Tanks, is now paving its way to Xbox 360 consoles this summer. It's time to Roll out!

World of Tanks: Onwards and Upwards

Somewhere, over the dull roar of engines and the grinding of metal, the sound of celebration can be heard in a Wargaming studio--one of the growing number--as World of Tanks smashes another record.

As announced in a press release today, WoT has passed 60 million registered users; which, I'm sure you agree, is rather impressive. With a user base larger than the population of some decently-sized countries, Wargaming's team based, tactical combat game is a phenomenal success by any measure.

World of Warships Fires Off New Cinematic

For those awaiting glimpses of Wargaming's upcoming action combat adventure on the high seas, World of Warships, the new cinematic will certainly wet the whistle.

Though not a full gameplay video, the very polished cinematic is a hint at the "immersive theater experience" awaiting attendees at E3 next week--hopefully this doesn't mean I'm getting thrown into a pool.

Wargaming Unites Accounts

Soon it will be even easier to enter the fray with Wargaming as the online gaming behemoth has announced the Unified Premium Account service.

Players who purchase a Premium Account in one game, such as World of Tanks, will have that account applied to all Wargaming titles, including whatever future games the studio currently has firmly hidden in its camouflaged sleeves.
