Interested in playing a completely free-to-play tank MMO? There is no need to look any further, as World of Tanks has what you're looking for! If you have even the slightest interest in tanks or even MMOs, we're sure this game will be a hit for you!]
About the game:
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, China, France and the Soviet Union, carefully detailed with historical accuracy glorious Russian bias!
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 with heavy tanks, or become a heavy sniper with long-range howitzers (artillery), each type of tank 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, it’s 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 (See thread title). Just add your favorite strategy to build your own iron empire and manifest the indisputable authority of the tank power!
