Six years ago today, World of Tanks made its console debut on Xbox 360, creating the international multiplayer spectacular so many know and play up until today. After six years, World of Tanks: Mercenaries is available on PlayStation®4, Xbox One, and the Xbox 360, making it one of the most popular free-to-play console games worldwide and one of the longest-running MMOs on Console. Having quadrupled its numbers in tanks, nations and maps, today, Wargaming is celebrating with a proud global family of more than 20 million commanders! To celebrate these milestones, as well as the 6th Anniversary, an abundance of mega specials, updates, discounts, and even an exclusive gift tank are waiting!
Wargaming’s CEO Victor Kislyi commemorates six great years of World of Tanks on Console with a special message together with the faces behind the World of Tanks phenomenon in a special birthday video for all players, to celebrate the ongoing success of World of Tanks: Mercenaries.
From February 12th-21st, commanders will have the chance to claim a free Xbox ONE X customized by the development team during a mega giveaway on our social media channels (Facebook, Twitter, VK)! Besides a load of in-game content, from bundles to various specials and discounts, multiplayer commanders will be able to take ownership and go to combat with the Ironclad T-29 after playing just one game! This event-exclusive tank is a special gift from the development team at Wargaming West in Chicago for over 20 million commanders who have supported and played World of Tanks: Mercenaries since its launch six years ago.
The Ironclad-T29 is a Tier III Medium with a deadly high damage gun. Not to mention its good mobility and weight, making it quite the rammer on the battlefield. Furthermore, every tanker can enjoy the dedicated Anniversary decorated garage for the next few weeks.
In addition, the most skilled commanders can anticipate a battle unlike any before – Clan Wars is back – better than ever. This epic challenge will take the strongest Mercenaries Clans and bring them together to battle it out against each other for mega prizes of earned gold and higher rankings.
As a special gift, all players will get special Valentine’s Day Ops to treat their crew to something nice, as well as the new edition of Warchests that comes with a 6% Anniversary bonus – increasing each players chances of scoring big.
