World of Tanks Celebrates 4th Anniversary On Consoles By Giving Away Free Tier II Tanks
Wargaming is happy to announce the four-year anniversary of World of Tanks on consoles with a series of celebrations for their community of 14 million players, including a competition to win unique art prints created by artists across the globe, a free tank giveaway in-game, and a huge experience-multiplying party event.
Having first launched on Xbox 360 in 2014, World of Tanks has expanded over the years to add intense team-based tank battles to the PlayStation®4 and Playstation®4 Pro, all available Xbox One generations, and most recently as a launch title for the Xbox One X in November 2017.
Since its first release back in 2014, World of Tanks has expanded from 100 tanks from three nations and only 12 available maps to include over 660 tanks from nine different nations, battling it out on over 90 unique maps in 2018. These impressive numbers speak for the ambitions of the developers from Wargaming West to deliver a completely new entry in the World of Tanks franchise, with exclusive features and regular new content updates for the players.
World of Tanks has attracted players from all over the globe, and Wargaming is happy to announce a new milestone in the history of their console business. With the continued growth of its player-base, Wargaming reached the landmark milestone of over 14 million console tank commanders worldwide. To date, players have fired over 44 billion shells, and destroyed more than 2.9 billion tanks in over 90 million epic battles. These statistics do not even account for the latest success of the five different War Stories, which deliver more than 12 hours of immersive, story-driven single-player gameplay, and co-operative multiplayer player fun outside of PvP battles.
“We are proud to be celebrating our four year anniversary with our tankers,” said TJ Wagner, Executive Producer and Project Lead at Wargaming West. “The dedication of the World of Tanks community has made every success in this game possible, and we look forward to sharing our combined passion for many more years to come – not only with new content, but also surprising additions in the near future.”
To celebrate the four-year milestone, Wargaming will be giving away the Japanese Tier II Ashigaru Te-Ke tank to all players who log-in to the game and win a single match throughout February. Additionally, there will be an XP multiplying War Party event from February 9-12, along with a special Anniversary bonus of x5 XP for one day only on February 9. Discounts on Premium time and XP Boost Ops will also be offered from February 9-13 plus various bundles and a silver bonus event during February.
