Who thought this would be a good idea?
Pretty bad OP, ill help a bit.
World of Tanks is a team-based massively multiplayer online action game dedicated to armored warfare. Throw yourself into the epic tank battles of World War II with other steel cowboys all over the world. Your arsenal includes more than 150 armored vehicles from America, Germany, and the Soviet Union, carefully detailed with historical accuracy.
A flexible system of authentic vehicle upgrade and development allows you to try any of the vehicles and weapons in the game. Whether you prefer to exhaust your foes with fast and maneuverable light tanks, make deep breaches in enemy lines with all-purpose medium tanks, use the force of giant tanks to eliminate opposing armored forces, or become a heavy sniper with long-range howitzers, each unit type has its own advantages and can be extremely effective when operated by a true tank ace.
But being a great tank commander alone isn't enough to win! In the World of Tanks, itís all about teamwork. Victory is achieved by combining your combat skills with those of the other members of your team, each playing their own role on the battlefield. Just add your favorite strategy to build your own iron empire and manifest the indisputable authority of the tank!
The Ultimate Armored Warfare Experience
Dive into intense tank-on-tank combat to enjoy an amazing new battlefield experience with a balance of multiple genres. A unique blend of these "ingredients,Ē supported by top-notch graphics and stunning audiovisual effects, provides endless challenge and excitement:
Simulator. Authentic models and vehicle characteristics make you feel like a real tank commander taking part in a furious armored offensive.
RPG. Your armored steed isn't just a tin can on tracks - itís a living, evolving mechanism that should be treated accordingly. Research your available upgrades and modifications to enhance its performance on the battlefield.
Action. Take part in joint operations to spot, track, and destroy enemy units and engage in head-to-head duels where your speed and reaction time is as important as in any co-op shooter.
Strategy. Thereís only one simple rule to follow - don't be a hero. Rally your comrades to devise a battle plan and assign roles, then move out and defeat your enemy on the field of honor.
Dynamic Combat System
New players jump into battle in less than a minute to take part in short, decisive combat actions designed to ensure fast and action-oriented warfare. As you are thrown onto the battlefield, you must be bold, decisive, and flexible to succeed in the maelstrom of iron and fire.
Epic Tank Clashes
Intense battles with up to 60 combat vehicles unfold on enormous and detailed battlefields featuring a variety of terrain from open fields with hills and forests to deserts and industrial zones. The terrain offers a wide scope for tactical decisions from aggressive fast-paced thrusts to elaborate flanking operations and diversionary attacks.
Deep Squad-based Gameplay
Out to conquer the world? Then our highly addictive squad-based gameplay is your ultimate goal. Countless new lands and territories let you show off your teamwork - the key to victory. The distribution and timely accomplishment of tasks and objectives within your squad gives you a critical advantage over your disorganized rivals.
Intense battles with up to 60 vehicles... Will there be infantry (orks/elves)? or some arty and air support? Imo, tanks only battles would become boring quite soon...
It will probably get boring fast but it will be free to play so trying it out won't hurt i guess.
Aye minitransactions and stuff. Buy a King Tiger now! only $20!
I hate that, i'd rather pay per month for a mmo.
Why is there a hummel in the second picture? That's a self-propelled artillery gun, not a tank.
Atleast we don't have to search for tanks anymore.
I guess that makes sense, since they had to balance it somehow.
So it's Blitz 1941 but better? Gotta try this.
The name is kinda silly.
Apparently they just started developing it? Damnit, I though it was released already.
We should make Facepunch Army and conquer the internet world!
New World Facepunch Order.
I just hope the tankbattles are realistic like Red orchestra / Darkest hour. If that's the case im definitely trying it.
I hope it won't be just "Every hit does x damage, y hits kill the tank."
I hope it's gonna be minitransactions not influencing gameplay performance , like special pictures and cosmetic stuff, or making getting shit easier (XP boost or something), which won't influence the real fight directly.
While World War II is nice, I'd would love to see a 1980s Cold War tank game.
There's a few gameplay videos in Russian on Youtube.
I don't see modern vehicular combat that fun. Modern tanks are usually able to engage targets kilometers far away. Also missiles can hit targets that are not even visible from the launching point. Same goes with cold war ones. It's wouldn't be fun.
Aslong as there is Jagdpanthers I'm happy.
Is there going to be an open beta soon?
I am so going to get this when it comes out.
I hope there are Sturmtigers. :D
also I hope it's not terribly level based.
That sounds like you're going to be sticking with a certain tank for long? I wouldn't like to say be in a Jagdpanther then be forced to a tiger because of levels or something. I take it we'll be able to stick with what we want?
If you feel like fast recon action, take Soviet A-20, if you feel like heavy destruction from long distance, take King Tiger, etc.
You can chose whatever tank you have for each new battle.
This looks good, i'll give it a try when it comes out.
I gotta try this out. I hope they'll turn this into real simulator
appears to be a deflection of a shell though around 3:40.
I saw a health bar with a strange amount of Health points, so that's already a problem (the amount of HP probably increases by level, anyway there shouldn't even be a health bar). They should just have taken the system Men of War uses and made it a bit more detailed (considering that this is tanks-only) and let us customize our tanks, that would have been awesome and I'd pay monthly for it.
bounceoff/penetrate physics will be realistic (i.e. Panzer II will have NO chance of penetrating JS (Joseph Stalin)-3's armour, just some chance to damage the tracks and immobilize it.
YES, microtransactions will NOT affect direct gameplay, just cosmetic staff and XP boosts.
