In celebration of the launch of the new World of Tanks 1.0, the Free to Play Massive Multiplayer Online developer Wargaming is releasing the World of Tanks AR Experience app worldwide on Android. The result of a close collaboration with Google to develop an augmented reality experience built with ARCore, Google’s new Augmented Reality (AR) technology, the app is now available on over 100 million mobile devices and featured by Google as one of the launch titles for the ARCore platform.
The World of Tanks AR Experience allows users to see a tank battle raging around them, ranging from life-size to tabletop scale. The AR vehicle also dismantles in mid-air to show off some of its core components. The application also features photo and video social sharing functions.
“We’re thrilled to collaborate with Google on delivering this unique AR experience to millions of users around the world,” said Matt Daly, Wargaming Special Projects, “With the recent release of World of Tanks 1.0, we’re taking tank combat up a gear, and the AR app will let our players extend their in-game experience to real life.”
World of Tanks AR Experience will be shown at the Google booth at Games Developer Conference this week in San Francisco, California. It is available worldwide for free on the Google Play store, with the exception of China, where it will release in April. Fans of iOS devices won´t have to wait to immerse themselves in the AR tank battles, as the application is also available on the iOS App Store.
World of Tanks AR Experience is supported by Google Pixel devices, Samsung Galaxy Note8/S8+/S8/S7/S7 Edge, Asus Zenfone AR, LG V30/V30+ and OnePlus 5. It is also compatible with the following iOS devices: iPhone SE, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6x Plus, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 plus, iPhone 8, iPhone 8plus, iPhone, iPad pro, and iPad 5.
