For the very first time in the World of Tanks franchise history, our Wargaming Chicago-Baltimore studio will be bringing modern, Cold War, tanks to the battlefield as we proudly announce the Modern Armor expansion to the over 21 million tankers on the consoles out there.
It was much-anticipated by our community, and this console-exclusive combat will test even the most hardened players. It will throw players into a brand-new era that will exist alongside the classic WWII-focused version of World of Tanks Console.
The Modern Armor expansion will be released on April 27th. Also, this feature, modern tanks in a separate additional era, will be cross-playable on PlayStation®4 & 5 and on Xbox One, Xbox Series S & X.
World of Tanks Console can be downloaded for free by all PlayStation Network and Xbox Live account holders, with stunning 4K resolution and HDR support on PlayStation®4 Pro, PlayStation 5, Xbox One X, Xbox Series S & Xbox Series X.
Players can enter the battlefield in some of the 20th-century superpowers’ most iconic modern tanks, like the American M1A2 Abrams and the Soviet T-72BM. Tankers can re-write history as they fight for tactical supremacy on the battlefield, taking on their foes alone or working with teammates to emerge victoriously.
We’ve been looking forward to expanding the world of online tank warfare in a big way by building the battlefield experience that you’ve dreamed of:
• At long last, introducing modern tanks into World of Tanks, branching into different eras of history with a whole new Tech Tree and separate battle queue
• Expanding the game with new maps available for both the World War II era and Cold War era
• Adding in features that you, the community, have long requested, such as artillery-free battles in Cold War mode, along with Consumables like Smokescreens
Now it’s time. Coming to your console on April 27th, 2021 – World of Tanks: Modern Armor!
TJ Wagner, Creative Director for World of Tanks Console said: “We are excited to premiere modern tanks within the global phenomena that is World of Tanks. Our passionate players will finally be able to get their hands on some of the most popular tanks of the modern era. Everyone in the studio worked hard to deliver the largest update to World of Tanks to date in an exciting new cross-console experience with Modern Armor!”.
You read that right. We’re bringing a Cold War universe into the game, full of fast-paced action along with features you’ve been waiting for:
• Era-based matchmaking
• Artillery-free gameplay
• Tanks from the Cold War era
• …and more!
The Cold War universe will exist as a brand-new game mode for you to choose in addition to the definitive World War II mode you’ve loved playing. But don’t worry—there’s more World War II-era content planned, too! We’ve already announced in one of our streams that Italian Heavies are coming into the game soon. We’ll continue to expand the World War II roster of tanks throughout the year with more Tech Tree lines and collectible tanks. You’ve dreamed about some of them for years, and you won’t believe they’re coming to Console!
And that’s not all. We’ve got amazing new maps, new Consumables that will expand your tactics, CoOp gameplay as an additional option, and so, so much more.
Stay tuned for more information on new tanks, maps, content, and more as the game hits on April 27th.
